Original post at http://www.yabookscentral.com/blogs/15193-the-eternity-cure-blog-tour-vampires-vs-humans-giveaway
I'm so excited to be a part of the Eternity Cure tour. Love this series so much! What's not to love? There's Allie, a kick-ass heroine who lives in a dystopian world where vampires rule. There's action, suspense, mystery, and a forbidden love between a vampire and human. Plus, edge of the seat suspense!
You can find a lot of info on the newly launched Blood of Eden website: http://www.bloodofeden.com

About Julie Kagawa - website, blog, Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads
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.
The theme of this tour is Vampires vs. Humans. Sure, it would be great to be a vampire in this world but what about the humans? After all Allie is in love with Zeke, who is very much human and courageous too.
And then there is Stick.
I have to admit Stick annoyed me in the first book. He seemed almost too cowardly and weak. Allie took him under her wing while they lived outside the fringe becoming like a sister to him. She shared her food and stood up for him. She even ended up dying for him. And when Allie went back to her old home, to check on Stick? He showed his true colors by turning her in.
Allie is repulsed and so are we. How can someone turn in a so-called friend who shared everything with them?
But don't be too quick to judge. After all aren’t there two sides to a story? Plus, what would you do in order to survive in this world?
Exactly who is Stick? Is he really the coward? Or does he have an ulterior motive?
In Eternity Cure Allie runs into her old friend again. Now Stick works for the Prince vampire of New Covington. I love how the author fleshed Stick out, showing readers another side. You're not really sure where his loyalties really lay. To say Allie is surprised to run into Stick again is an understatement.
Here's a little taste of the metamorphosis of Stick shown through Allie's eyes:
** The biggest change was in his eyes and the way he carried himself. Back in the Fringe, Stick had cringed and skulked his way through life, relying on me for survival... Now, he carried himself tall, his tone and expression clear, almost arrogant.
Ooh, now he calls himself Mr. Stephan and isn't afraid to let Allie and the others with her know he's in charge. Plus his take on what Allie did are nothing like she recalls. Put people in a room and have them witness something and everyone will have their own take of what happened. The same thing happens with Stick.
Other little hints are dropped about how Stick really feels about Allie returning. A range of emotions come out that shock and even anger Allie. Let's just say the final revelation is totally gasp worthy!
The Giveaway is a Blood of Eden inspired Travel Package including: A beautiful handmade Leather Travel Journal, handmade pencils, a copy of The Immortal Rules and The Eternity Cure and a vintage Leather messenger bag “Alison Style”.
