Reviews The Forever Song (Blood of Eden, #3)

  • Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies
    **Spoilers for book 2, minor spoilers for book 3** “Say you love me, vampire girl,” he whispered, his voice low and husky. “Tell me...that this is forever.”“I love you,” I said immediately. “And if we have forever, there’s no one else I want to spend it with.” That sad, sad moment when your favorite YA vampire series turns into a soap opera.This book broke my heart in a way that hasn't happened since Ginny x Harry. I absolutely ...

    AFTER READING: I need a hug. I need lots of hugs. I can't believe it's over now. The ending was beautiful and bittersweet. I cannot wait to fangirl with you all. Allison, Zeke, Jackal, and Kanin... You will be missed. I cried so much. I will reread this series every time I'm sad, I swear. ****************Updated: 2014 April 9th, less than a week before the release!! Who's excited?? I know I am!The door loomed dead ahead, and I didn't stop.  I d...

    "So, this is me, all of me, forever. No more looking back. No more regrets. From now on, vampire girl--" he lowered his head, brushing his lips across my skin "--I'm all yours." I promise no spoilers for this book but it would be impossible to review The Forever Song without giving away some things from the previous books. In my opinion, this final installment is the weakest. I thought the second book was a hard one to follow, so maybe that fact ...

    After reading:NOOOO IT'S OVER, NOOOOOOoooo.Well, I am sad to see this series come to an end. I really enjoyed it.The Forever Song is a good conclusion to the trilogy, over all––as thrilling, action-packed, and emotional as the two books that preceded it. There were a few things that didn't quite work for me, and I'm still trying to decide how I feel about the ending ... But over all, it was worth the wait.Full review coming soon!Before readin...

    Oh the title is perfect... *sigh*Zeke baby! And Allison, you gorgeous badass. I love you too much to wait. I. Just. Can't.Ms. Kagawa I believe you are trying to kill me, but I love you anyway because you're so crazy awesome.But dammit I NEED THAT BOOK MISSY!!!!!!!!!
  • Sofii♡ (A Book. A Thought.)
    “I am proud of you, Allison Sekemoto,” he whispered “Whatever you decide, whatever path you choose to take, I hope that you will remain the same girl I met that night in the rain. The one decision for which I have no regrets.” It is always difficult to start a review when you have so many feelings about a book, especially in a trilogy or saga, but I think at the same time or at least in my case, I can express better my opinions and so I c...
  • Ferdy
    SpoilersAn unremarkable end to an unremarkable series. -The Forever Song mostly consisted of Allison walking, snarling, feeling sorry for herself, baring her fangs, making cheesy promises of revenge, and inner monologuing… And the rest of the story was made up of generic fight scenes.-I hated Allison's character, she was such a crappy heroine. It pissed me off how her whole world revolved around a guy. She lost all her morals and turned into a ...
  • Dorreh
    The last book in this series was great. It followed up on all the elements and gruesome details that enchanted me so very much in the first book. The element of surprise and change that occurred in the love relationship, although foreseeable, was amply believable and well portrayed. I can't really complain because I did love everything about this book, and I think it ended well. Kanins death was a necessary evil to heighten the drama, a symbolic ...
  • Penny
    Rating Clarification: 3.5 starsThis series is definitely a MUST READ. These books are constant page turners, gripping, enthralling and exhilarating. Personally, I think that this third installment had too much action and no down time. Part of what made me love the first installment so much is that it had the perfect combination of both action and narrative, the action is perfectly fine , but the down time makes that action better, gives it more t...
  • Faye, la Patata
    RANT AHEAD As much as I liked this series as a whole, I could not be any happier that Allison's whining has ended. I know that looks very, very weird on paper, but if you read the books from start to finish, you should know that angst is pretty much the main character's trademark. You cannot have the name Allison Sekemoto without angst attached to it like an octopus with its brutal eight-tentacled crush (thank you, Khanh). They go together, ha...
  • Hannah (The Curiouser & Curiouser)
    Updated 5/17/14.One word.Jackal.I just freakin’ love Jackal.Honestly, the only, only reason I gave this book a 3.5 out of 5 stars was because of Jackal and (somewhat) Kanin. And the fact that Sarren finally, finally dies in the best possible way.Case in point (via the amazing Jackal):“Oh, isn’t that sweet,” came Jackal’s loud, mocking voice… “Let’s make goo-goo eyes at each other in the middle of a stinking corpse field, how very ...
  • Arooj
    I just finished this and...I feel numb. I can't believe its all actually over. The story has come to an end.But what a wonderful end it was.This series...oh man. I can't properly express my feelings for it. Just saying that I loved it isn't enough. It felt like this story reached into me and tore out my heart, patched it back together, tore it out all over again, and just kept repeating. But in the end, it left me feeling satisfied, even though w...

    4.5 “Now, can we please move past this and get on with saving the world?” starsThis is it. The end of Blood of Eden. The end of Allie. Kanin. Zeke. Jackal.I put this off for so long, because I knew, I knew. There would be no more. And now, I can’t take it back. Pretty please can I unread this? ;_;Allie has lost the love of her life, Zeke. He was taken, and brutally murdered. Allie is out for revenge for his captor, but this isn't her greate...
  • Mags~CVAddikt~
    I loved it!!!!!************************A title!!!The Forever Song ... and that gives me the creeps ... all I can think about is Sarren saying "I will make your little bird sing for and hour. Her song will seep into the very walls and will remain here forever, and everyone who hears it will know how much she wanted to die. The longer this goes on, the longer her music will last, until she is begging for it to end. But it will not end, as long as y...
  • Phrynne
    The last book in the trilogy and I guess it was a satisfactory ending. All of the story lines were neatly tied up except maybe for Jackal and there is apparently the possibility that he may get his own spin off series which would be nice!Jackal was actually the best thing about this book. His sarcastic and humorous comments provided some lightness to an otherwise very heavy story. There was a lot of fighting and also a lot of angst about how hung...
  • Anne
    If you've been following these books, then I think you'll be happy with the final installment. It's a good solid ending to the Blood of Eden trilogy.Warning: Spoilers for the previous books on the way!It keeps the theme of the other books, in that vampires are not cuddly or misunderstood.Allie has been struggling to keep her humanity throughout the first two books, and with the help of her mentor Kanin, she's managed to keep from sucking people d...

    Larissa and I discussion reviewed this on the blog. There are mild spoilers, but nothing that will ruin your enjoyment of the book: Quick rundown on... What we didn't like:- The angst between Zeke and Allison- Zeke and Allison- Boring, simple story line- The Zeke Twist and how quickly the twist was resolved- The romance. There was no chemistry. What we did like:- Jackal- Kanin- Kagawa's writing skills - Th...
  • Reading Teen
    Such an epic conclusion to an amazingly exciting series. "My sword flashed, and he screamed as the gun hit the pavement along with both his arms." Julie starts The Forever Song off with a bang and doesn't let up until it's over. This book is seriously gory!! It's also full of adventure, humor, love, heart-warming moments, and heart-BREAKING moments. DO NOT READ FURTHER IF YOU HAVEN'T READ THE FIRST TWO BOOKS!!I have to say, I was VERY concerned f...
  • Hermione
    4 stars. A great, albeit bittersweet ending to a fantastic series ... But I do think this last book certainly didn't live up to the potential of its predecessors. _______(view spoiler)[Hell, I don't even want this series to end! D:2014? I can't wait that long. I can't.Just give it to me now. I promise — I swear — I won't share the pleasure, the honor with anyone else. (I am trying my absolute hardest to remain composed as of now. But inside, ...
  • Jen ♥Star-Crossed Book Blog♥
    *Spoilers for The Immortal Rules & The Eternity Cure*The Forever Song was an epic conclusion to the Blood of Eden trilogy!  It was filled to the brim with devastation, peril, hope, and I cherished every single page.   Even if I had tears in my eyes through parts of those last few chapters.  But I didn't want it to end since it contained so much of what I loved in the first two books.  Luckily, I know that this series will continue to infil...

    ☆ ☆ ☆ I'm really going 3.5 here but rounded up because I feel like it. YOU DON'T OWN ME GOODREADS.EDIT: Changed rating down half a star, it's been a few days and it's just more accurate.

    After reading this book, all I can think of is: Jackal, that crazy bastard, is sexy as hell. Why am I always attracted to the bad boys? *sighs*
  • Cassie Stever
    “I love you, vampire girl,” he whispered as he drew back. “And forever is exactly what we have.” i don’t.... have words. i’m literally sobbing, like full on ugly s o b b i n g. idk what to say. julie kagawa has literally given me hope, made me laugh, and then ripped my heart out and stomped on it, only to return it to me and say, “here, put this thing back in your chest and find a way to cope with what’s about to come next.”...
  • Kira Simion
    Guess who just got this book from the library ? :D*points* This gal! *Tears of joy* Please let Jackal not die. And please let them both kick some butt! *^* *crosses fingers*The first book was good, the second was really great, so I have some hope for the third one. :3 Edit: (To be reviewed as best I can) Edit: (7-7-16) (btw you need to read these books in order. There are some series that can be read out of order but, this is not one of them....
  • Bonnie
    My rating: 2.5 of 5 starsI received this book free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.Another series ender that has unfortunately ended in disappointment for me this year. I found The Forever Song to be, for the most part, incredibly lacking in any sort of plot progress. Basically, there was walking, walking, then they’d fight some rabids, walking, walking, oo...
  • AH
    Initial Thoughts: What a most excellent way to end a series. Absolutely fantastic. Action-packed, bloody, sometimes horrific, exciting. Allison has certainly come a long way and she is one kickass heroine. These are some freaky scary vampires - they definitely do not sparkle. If you haven't yet started this series, what are you waiting for? Full review to come closer to release date.The Review:Wow. That was awesome. Book 3 of Julie Kagawa’s Blo...
