Review: ‘The Immortal Rules’ by Julie Kagawa
I received a complimentary copy of the book from the Netgalley, publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

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.
Enter Julie Kagawa's dark and twisted world as an unforgettable journey begins.
I have wanted to read Julie Kagawa books for a while and jumped at the chance when I saw “The Immortal Rules” on Netgalley. I have all of the Iron Fey books on my Kindle…but other books have taken precedence, but I plan on reading them this year.
I’m glad I put other books on hold to read “The Immortal Rules” so I can find out what kind of writing style Julie Kagawa has. At the end of the book, Julie Kagawa said that she never thought of jumping on the “Vampire” wagon. I’m glad she did though. =) I love reading books that Vampires are not the mushy, romantic, and sparkly kind…instead they are feared, hated, killing monsters that we are used to reading them as.
Recommend this book to anyone out there who has read Julie Kagawa before, loves the Paranormal YA Genre, who loves dystopian fiction, and loves MONSTERS that Vampires are supposed to be (not the Edward Cullen kind…)
