Allison Sekemoto has vowed to rescue her creator, Kanin, who is being held hostage and tortured by the psychotic vampire Sarren. The call of blood leads her back to the beginning—New Covington and the Fringe, and a vampire prince who wants her dead yet may become her wary ally. Even as Allie faces shocking revelations and heartbreak like she’s never known, a new strain of the Red Lung virus that decimated humanity is rising to threaten human and vampire alike.
I am so relieved about the cover of this book! Honestly, I was really really annoyed when they white-washed Allie on the cover of THE IMMORTAL RULES. I'm glad that the publisher took the reader's thoughts into consideration when they created this and didn't change the race of the protagonist again--it honestly confused the heck out of me because I had no clue who the girl on the cover was supposed to be. At first glance this cover looks pretty plain, but I LOVE the electric blue and the details with the branches. I am desperately waiting for THE ETERNITY CURE's release so I can finally figure out what's up between Allie and Kanin. I actually prefer him to the other dude. :)
