WHAT IF HAVING A CHANCE TO SAVE HUMANITY MEANT BECOMING what you hate and fear MOST?  

From the limitless imagination of New York Times bestselling author Julie Kagawa comes a startling new dystopian series filled with thrilling action, shocking twists and irrevocable choices that illuminate the very heart of human nature. 

"A fresh and imaginative thrill-ride." -Publishers Weekly, starred review 

"Kagawa...mixes paranormal and dystopian tropes to good effect, creating a world that will appeal across audiences." -Kirkus Reviews 

"Julie Kagawa is one killer storyteller." -MTV's Hollywood Crush blog 

 

Born in Sacramento, California, Julie Kagawa moved to Hawaii at the age of nine, where she learned many things: how to bodyboard, that teachers screamed when you put centipedes in their desks and that writing stories in math class was a fantastic way to kill time. Her teachers were glad to see her graduate. 

Julie now lives near Louisville, Kentucky, with her husband and a plethora of pets. She still laughs whenever she sees a centipede. She is the author of the bestselling Iron Fey series and can be found at www.juliekagawa.com.

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 of them-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 what-and who-is worth dying for...again

Lieder Madchen, August 7, 2013 (view all comments by Lieder Madchen)
This book takes some old ideas and squishes them together in new ways to make a delightfully original story. It is a vampire/zombie apocalypse adventure with more than a few hints of samurai legends. I love it. It's dark and dramatic and powerfully written. Plus it has vampires fighting zombies. Beat that! Well, they're called 'rabids' in the book, but they're basically zombies.

Allie is one tough lady. Having spent her entire life hating vampires, she suddenly is one. Under the tutelage of Kanin, a mysterious, solitary vampire with many secrets, she starts to learn how to be a monster without becoming a monster. He teaches her how to use her new abilities to survive and defend herself and gifts her with a katana. (A vampire slaying zombies with a katana - like I said, beat that!) This interlude does not last long, however, and Allison is forced to set out into the world on her own. It is there that she discovers a wandering group of humans - and Zeke.

I really like Zeke (full name Ezekiel Crosse). He still has hope in a world that offers none. He's a born leader; protective, selfless and brave. He's also falling fast for Allie - or the human he thinks she is. Despite how much I like him as a love interest, I have this kind of half-hope that Kanin will turn out to be...but I doubt it. Maybe. We'll see. He's pretty entrenched in the mentor role for now.

All-in-all, I loved this book. Great characters, wonderful story, serious and fun at the same time...what's not to like? I would highly recommend The Immortal Rules.

I received an e-galley of this book through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Allison “Allie” Sekemoto lives in a world were everyday is about survival. Allie lives in what is known as the Fringe. During the day Allie and her crew scavenge for food and at night any one of them could be eaten. At times the only thing that keeps Allie going is her hatred of the vampires. Vampires that see humans as nothing more than blood cattle. All of that changes the night Allie dies and becomes one of the very monsters she has spent her life hating.

Forced to flee from the city she has always known, Allie’s only chance to survive is to pass for a human with a group of pilgrims in search of a legend. A place that just might have a cure for the disease that has managed to wipe out most of humanity. The disease that created the rabids, bloodthirsty creatures that threaten everyone, both humans and vampires alike. Allie is going to have to decide just what and who is important enough to her that makes dying again worth everything.



This is world of vampires that is very new and different. The story comes to life with every word that is read and is not to be missed. As the story takes place in the future the world is a very different place than the world is today but it still has enough of places of today to make it believable and very interesting. The characters are well written and have enough personality to keep things moving along very well and still keep them believable. This is one that the reader will be pulled in until the very last page.
