Vengeance will be hers.

Allison Sekemoto once struggled with the question: human or monster? With the death of her love, Zeke, she has her answer.


Allie will embrace her cold vampire side to hunt down and end Sarren, the psychopathic vampire who murdered Zeke. But the trail is bloody and long, and Sarren has left many surprises for Allie and her companions - her creator Kanin, and her blood brother, Jackal. The trail is leading straight to the one place they must protect at any cost - the last vampire-free zone on Earth, Eden. And Sarren has one final, brutal shock in store for Allie.

In a ruined world where no life is sacred and former allies can turn on you in one heartbeat, Allie will face her darkest days. And if she succeeds, her triumph will be short-lived in the face of surviving forever alone.

Allison is determined to avenge her boyfriend Zeke’s death by hunting down the one vampire who destroyed him, Sarrin. With her Master Sire Kanin and blood brother Jackal they search for the evil vampire so they can save every human and vampire from his wrath. Will they be able to save everyone? Will Allison lose her humanity trying to seek revenge for her loss?


Allison’s internal struggles of being a demon is evident in The Forever Song. Her cries of savagery and cold blooded murder is a far cry from her previous character arcs in the other two books. And I have to say I loved it. She was completely different. She became who she really is and learning that was such a struggle. And for the other characters? I loved them all. I just know that people will love this one. There is a huge twist and obviously I was waiting for it. Gave me all the feels..Oh god all the feels!!


From the moment I started reading it, I couldn’t stop. The pacing and the characters, and the world ending were pretty much perfect. Did I mention that the story kept moving along? That the characters and their goal was to end Kanin? I want everyone who even likes the slightest hint of vampires to read this trilogy. It’s a survival story filled with vampires, so why wouldn’t you want to read that? I just loved it.


The only thing worth mentioning is the cover. Why hide the gorgeous Allison underneath the jacket? Shouldn’t we celebrating diversity on covers? It’s the 21st century. A POC needs to be on these book covers! I think I’ll just buy the UK covers lol..

You’re going to want to get ready for this epic conclusion, because I couldn’t stop reading it. It had everything I wanted and more. So much heartache, redemption and action!


I was done pretending that I was anything less than a monster.
It is far easier to be a monster than to confront the truth.
I admit, I made some mistakes in my life, but what’s done is don’t, and I can’t go back and change them.
No one gets to decide what kind of monster I am but me.
