No injection can cure love. Only life can do that.

Deep in the darkest tunnels hide the last of the resistance fighters. Hunted by the savage Furies and the ruthless Bloods, they live in constant peril. The only means of survival is to seek strength in family and find courage in love. So what happens when love is cured, scoured away, leaving death in its place?

In the final battle for freedom, there are no lines that won't be crossed. And for Josi this means becoming the creature she fears most of all: the girl with a blood moon heart.

The gripping conclusion to the dystopian trilogy The Cure, Limerence is a love story for the monsters within.

Perfect for fans of Pierce Brown, Laini Taylor and Maggie Stiefvater.

*The Reader's Review*
My rating: 4/5 stars

UGGGGHHH. This book, and the series, made me go through SO MUCH, that I can't believe I actually came out unscathed. Scratch that, I am sort of messed up. The last chapters had me crying and smiling and loving/hating the story and it's characters. How it all wraps up and the high cost for finally breaking free.

The Cure series is about how humanity has been ripped up some crucial feelings/emotions that makes us truly human. First, Fury. Humans are only just content selves that are not capable anymore to speak up for themselves. Then, Sadness. A sinking level that one must reach in order to get back up and fight. Lastly, Love. The ultimate feeling that makes us feel for us and others, that gives us the strength to never give up. 

But this story is also about Josephine Luquet. A young woman immune to the cures, but haunted by the blood moon that turns her into a monster and kills savagely anyone that crosses her path. A monster that was thought to be subdued, but not really gone.

If you're looking for a great dystopian series, then look no further. I have reached the end of this magnificent series and while we had some ups and downs, I'm so glad I pushed it into the very end. I loved how it surprises every time, how it goes for the blow and doesn't back down. It gives us a strong heroine that is far from perfect, but you can't stop from following because she is the kind of leader you'd want to have. She gains the reader's respect.

This final installment focuses more on the love cure and while it killed me to see how it unfolds, especially when it came to my love for Josi's and Luke's relationship, I had such a ride in every page. It killed me, healed me, then killed me all over again.

"No injection can cure love. Only life can do that."

Truer words were never spoken. Read this series now and prepare to fall in love... and fight for your life. ♥
