Review: The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa - A Dystopian world overrun with VAMPIRES! I'm game! ;)

 In a future world, Vampires reign. Humans are blood cattle. And one girl will search for the key to save humanity.

Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a vampire 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 is attacked—and given the ultimate choice. Die… or become one of the monsters.

Faced with her own mortality, Allie becomes what she despises most. To survive, she must learn the rules of being immortal, including the most important: go long enough without human blood, and you will go mad.

Then Allie is forced to flee into the unknown, outside her city walls. There she joins a ragged band of humans who are seeking a legend—a possible cure to the disease that killed off most of humankind and created the rabids, the mindless creatures who threaten humans and vampires alike.

But it isn't easy to pass for human. Especially not around Zeke, who might see past the monster inside her. And Allie soon must decide what—and who—is worth dying for.
This book pretty much seals the deal for me. I'm a Julie Kagawa fan through and through. Julie's Iron Fey Series can be found pretty near the top of my favorites list. Four amazing books and four gushing reviews later.. This book reader wanted more! Then I heard about The Immortal Rules! Another book by the amazing Kagawa! I just couldn't wait to get my greedy little hands on it!

We've got a whole new series, promising a brand new adventure! We're not just talking fairies anymore! This book had it all! A dystopian world over run with VAMPIRES! An unforgettable sword swinging heroine! I was gonna love it, I just knew it!

This book is definitely a lot thicker than The Iron Fey Series, but don't let that bother you. The longer the book, The more book to read! Am I right! :)

I couldn't put the book down. It literally had me glued to it's pages. Although there were a few slow parts now and then, the beautiful writing and intense story line definitely made up for that! Throw in that little bit of romance and I was sold!

This book is definitely worthy of a four star rating. Great read, Epic adventure, and a romance that leaves you wondering and wanting more! I'm just glad it's a series! One book in this world just wouldn't be enough!


  1. I'm so excited to see Kagawa start a new series! I'm loving what I've read of the Iron Fey so far. It's so nice to have more to look forward to!

  2. I'm so happy it's a series, though I don't want to wait any longer for the next book!
