Harlequin Teen Halloween Tour: The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa | Trick or Treat? Giveaway!

Hello everyone! Happy Halloween! (...well almost ) 

I am without a doubt ecstatic about being part of the 2013 Harlequin Teen Halloween Tour. Harlequin Teen and Kismet Book Tours have come together to bring you this fun event with so many epic authors! 

Here at Bittersweet Enchantment, I have the honor of hosting one of my VERY FAVORITE authors, Julie Kagawa! I have read everything she has ever written including one of her newest books The Eternity Cure. Which I must say was AMAZING! 

So without further ado, please help me in welcoming Julie Kagawa and star (main character)  of The Eternity Cure, Allison! Allison will be sharing her thoughts on "What's the scariest part of being in love?" 

What is the scariest part of being in love?


"What? What kind of question is that? And, sorry, but how is it any of your business? I'm not 

going to answer that." 

Author interjecting: "Allison, please. Humor them. For me?"

Allison: *Sighs* "Fine. You want to know the scariest part of being in love. Honestly? Being 

afraid I'll lose it and eat the person I'm in love with. Happy now?"

Author: "No, that's the easy answer. And I know you better than that. What's the real reason? 

Why don't you want to fall in love?"

Allison: "..."

Author: "Allison..."

Allison: "Because everyone I get close to leaves! Because I don't want to start caring for 
someone only to watch them die or stab me in the back. Because it's easier to be alone then to go through that again, and now that I'm a vampire, it's better that way. They won't betray me, and I won't tear out their throat. Everyone wins."

Author: "Do you believe Zeke would do that?"

Allison: "...No."

Author: "Why are you so afraid of falling for him?"

Allison: "Because...he deserves better. He's truly a good person, and he doesn't need to be with someone like me. I don't want to hurt him, but I'm afraid of what the monster would make me do."

Author: "But you do love him, don't you?"

Allison: "That wasn't the original question. And I think I'm done."

The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa

You won’t want to miss book 2 in Julie Kagawa’s dystopian masterpiece, Blood of Eden, optioned for a movie by Palomar Pictures.
How do you face the end of eternity?

In Allison Sekemoto’s world, there is one rule left: Blood calls to blood.

She has done the unthinkable: died so that she might continue to live. Cast out of Eden and separated from the boy she dared to love, Allie will follow the call of blood to save her creator, Kanin, from the psychotic vampire Sarren. But when the trail leads to Allie’s birthplace in New Covington, what Allie finds there will change the world forever-and possibly end human and vampire existence.

About The Author: Julie Kagawa
Find Julie @
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.
