Review: The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa


The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa


Title: The Immortal Rules
Author: Julie Kagawa

Summary:
To survive in a ruined world, she must embrace the darkness

Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a walled-in city. By day, she and her crew scavenge for food. By night, any one of them could be eaten. Some days, all that drives Allie is her hatred ofthem—the vampires who keep humans as blood cattle. Until the night Allie herself dies and becomes one of the monsters.

Forced to flee her city, Allie must pass for human as she joins a ragged group of pilgrims seeking a legend—a place that might have a cure for the disease that killed off most of civilization and created the rabids, the bloodthirsty creatures who threaten human and vampire alike. And soon Allie will have to decide whatandwhois worth dying foragain.


Enter Julie Kagawa's dark and twisted world as an unforgettable journey begins.

Review:
So, of course like everyone who has read the Iron Fey series, I was dying to get my hands on Kagawas next book.

Finally I was given the chance (Thank you Netgalley!)

So, the story is another vampire novel, but not typical. It starts with a young girl, Allie, who is an unregistered (not a blood save to the vampires) human that has to scavenge for her food and hide on a daily basis. She lives this way because her mother was killed by the vampires when she got sick and couldn’t give her assigned amount of blood for a day (her mother was a Registered-made to give blood on a schedule)

Immediately you learn that there has been an outbreak that caused the humans to start to die off rather quickly, and thus the vampires who had been hidden, have risen up to control the situation to save their race as well. Because if all the humans die, they would too. 

But then something changed, and even vampires became infected with this Rabid disease. Now there are Rabids- once human or vampire, now diseased, that are vicious- kinda like zombies.

Well, one day when Allie was scavenging food, they were attacked by Rabids, and almost killed, but a Vampire came and offered her the chance to live- well undead. She became a vampire and went on her way when a bad guy(an old enemy of her sire) came in search of him. She met up with a small group of surviving humans in search for a city called Eden, where they want to work on a cure for Rabidism.

She starts having feelings for this human (think Twilight in reverse) even though she considers herself a monster.

The rest of the book is about her trying to help this small band of humans to get to their destination.

I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. There are SO many vampires book out there, but thankfully this one didn’t feel boring or mundane, it wasn’t the same as the others, and I truly enjoyed it!

On to book 2 

Rating: 4.5 Stars.
