This book was all over the place in a good way. My heart is still racing from the last half hour.
1) Cliffhanger ending, so if you need closure, wait for the next book.
2) Very violent at times and downright disturbing at others...in case that bothers you.
The heroine's inner monologues get a little tiresome and the humanity vs. monster battle isn't always consistent. However, she is easy to cheer for and swings a mean blade. Her strength, self-confidence and attitude all spike in this book. Supporting characters are very well-developed...love them, hate them, cry for them, want to slap them, and so on.
The Eternity Cure is full of substance, well-written and well-executed. I was fully engrossed in the story and found it hard to stop listening...exactly what I seek when choosing an audiobook.

Would you listen to The Eternity Cure again? Why?
Yes, I would. I am enjoying this series so far. I have enjoyed pretty much everything Julie Kagawa writes. This follow-up to The Immortal Rules wasn't as strong as the first book, but the ending packed a powerful punch and I'm looking forward to the next instalment.
Would you recommend The Eternity Cure to your friends? Why or why not?
Yes. I would recommend The Eternity Cure (and the Blood of Eden series) to people who enjoy paranormal or dystopian/post-apocalyptic stories. It's a vampire story with a post-apocalyptic twist, and a nice change of pace from typical YA vampire books.
What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?
Therese Plummer does a great job, once again. She narrates as if she's telling her own story, really bringing it to life through the eyes of Allison.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Near the end, when Zeke relays his message to Allie on the laptop. Very moving.
Any additional comments?
I didn't enjoy The Eternity Cure as much as I enjoyed The Immortal Rules, but I'm still looking forward to the next book. The ending made up for the two or three occasions when I thought the story line was moving a bit slowly. I also like that the author left us with a cliffhanger ending that, while leaving us wondering what will happen next, isn't so abrupt as to completely frustrate the readers (I'm talking to you, Kresley Cole!).
