The Forever Song by Julie Kagawa – Blog Tour and Review

Posted 17 April, 2014 by Danny in Blog, Blog Tour, Danny, Danny's Book Review, Giveaways / 44 Comments

Oh I’ve been a fan of Julie Kagawa since I read her first book The Iron King – and ever since I feel deeply in love with her stories. The Blood of Eden Series combines her incredible world building with my (still) favorite paranormal creature: Vampires!

But.. all good things must come to an end so welcome to the Blog Tour for:

The Spectacular Conclusion to the Epic Dystopian Trilogy


The Forever Song by Julia Kagawa

Final book #3 in the Blood of Eden series

The Forever Song_CoverRelease: April 15th, 2014 by Harlequin Teen

Allison Sekemoto once struggled with the question: human or monster?

With the death of her love, Zeke, she has her answer.

MONSTER. 

Allie will embrace her cold vampire side to hunt down and end Sarren, the psychopathic vampire who murdered Zeke. But the path is bloody and long, and Sarren has left many surprises for Allie and her companions—her creator, Kanin, and her blood brother, Jackal.

The trail is leading straight to the one place they must protect at any cost— the last vampire-free zone on Earth, Eden. And Sarren has one final, brutal shock in store for Allie. In a ruined world where no life is sacred and former allies can turn on you in one heartbeat, Allie will face her darkest days. And if she succeeds, triumph is short-lived in the face of surviving forever alone.

 

Allie has been through a lot. From becoming a Vampire in The Immortal Rules  to slowly accepting being a creature she always despised. We left Allie in a state of pure horror and devastation at the end of The Eternity Cure.

Hell, we’ve all been shocked! But, Julie Kagawa knows exactly what to do a Reader to make us both love and hate her:) The ending of  The Eternity Cure was shocking and Readers have been desperately dreading and wishing for The Forever Song!

The Forever Song is dark and it brings Allie to her knees in what she can endure and who she wants to be. Allie struggles a lot with the loss of Zeke and struggles to keep her humanity, something she always valued so much. This struggle drives the story, together with the run to rescue not only humanity but also also all vampires. The whole world and both humans and Vampires are in danger and Allie, Kanin and Jackal are the only ones that might come to their rescue.

In this final conclusion we find ourself in a heart pounding and thrilling race, that takes nearly everything. I said it before, and will say it over and over again – Julie Kagawa is a master storyteller who never holds back, who never spares us and her characters anything. And this is what you should also expect from The Forever Song. It’s shocking and sometimes even dreadful, but it’s such an absorbing story that never had dull or boring moments.

The Forever Song also comes with stunning twits, that will make us laugh and cry. Sure enough, there are lots of emotions in this final conclusion and eyes won’t stay dry for very long!

The ending was perfect! Even though I am sure many people ar dreading the end, and will hate the way the story ended. I personally think it was the best and perfect way to end this story.  I’m excited that I can leave this story and world behind me with satisfaction and not with anger or confusion, like so often with series endings.

Julie Kagawa was born in Sacramento, California. But nothing exciting really happened to her there. So, at the age of nine she and her family moved to Hawaii, which she soon discovered was inhabited by large carnivorous insects, colonies of house geckos and frequent hurricanes. She spent much of her time in the ocean, when she wasn’t getting chased out of it by reef sharks, jellyfish and the odd eel.

To pay the rent, Julie worked in different bookstores over the years, but discovered the managers frowned upon her reading the books she was supposed to be shelving. So she turned to her other passion: training animals. She worked as a professional dog trainer for several years, dodging Chihuahua bites and overly enthusiastic Labradors, until her first book sold and she stopped training to write full-time.

Julie now lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where the frequency of shark attacks are at an all-time low. She lives with her husband, two obnoxious cats, one Australian shepherd who is too smart for his own good and the latest addition, a hyperactive Papillon puppy.

    Of course I am sad that its the last one in the series but I am really excited too!! I absolutely love this series!!

  2. Linda Townsend

    I’m THRILLED! I loved Julie’s Fey series and am looking forward to reading this series in it’s entirety.

  3. The Forever Song was the best book of the trilogy for me, even if it was awful to my poor heart so many times! Allison really was put to the test in this book and for a change I began to love Jackal!

    The ending was so fitting, even if upsetting. Once you think about it, there couldn’t be a more fitting ending for the story and the characters.

    Great review!

  4. I am sad, excited, elated and everything in between. This is one of my favorite YA Paranormal series and the first series I read by Julie Kagawa. It was also my introduction to her Iron Fey’s series (Call of the forgotten) and I love them both. Allie is one amazing character and I am looking forward to see how much more she has evolved as a vampire.

    I’m just getting started with this series so I’m not as sad as some on the series ending! Congrats to Julie on the newest release and thanks for sharing!

  6. Stormy

    This is a definite frown sitting on my face because it’s only a trilogy. 🙁 I love these books. Can’t wait to get into The Forever Song.

  7. Natoshia

    I am an avid reader, I discovered The Immortal Rules last week and read the book in a few days.

    I love the premise of the series. Very creative, definitely not a recycled plot. I also appreciated the delicate manner in which faith is handled in the story. It is a very dark time, but hope, although fragile, continues to be priceless. Allison is an awesome strong heroine with enough venerability and struggles to make her believable and relatable. I am in pursuit of the next two books!

    Julie Kagawa – I hope to meet you some day! You amaze me with your talent 🙂 Blessings on your future endeavors.

  8. Arabrab

    OMG!!! I can’t wait to read the book, I’m currently reading all over again so I can be happy reading The Forever Song 😀

  9. Kai W.

    I’m excited that The Forever Song will tell how the story end but I’m also sad that this is the end of the series.

  10. Margot

    The ending for Eternity Cure broke me for a good while…. and while I’ve reread Immortal Rules a few times while waiting for Forever Song, I refuse to reread TEC…. I’m not really for that…. and I’m pretty sure TFS will break me as well. >.<

  11. Stephanie T.

    Bittersweet as always. I know that Julie Kagawa won’t disappoint with the ending of this series, but I’m also a little sad to know that this will be the end of the character’s journey.

  12. Allie L

    I’m so excited to read the forever song to see how it all ends but I’m also sad that the series is over 🙂

  13. Tiffany Mahaffy

    How do you pick just one emotion t feel with this release?! I am excited to see how it all ends but worry about what it will take to get there!
