JULIE KAGAWA MONTH: The Immortal Rules

JULIE KAGAWA MONTH: Book Reviews, Interviews, Giveaways and more...

Review of The Iron Queen
Review of The Iron Knight

Welcome to another post of the Julie Kagawa Month.

"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.

 The Immortal Rules has to be one of the best vampire books ever! I mean, I don't read vampire books alot, but I read synopsis of other vampire books. They all sound ilke Twilight rip-offs. This one stayed true to the original vampires (not-sparkling one) yet it had one of the most original concepts ever!

Allie would have to be one of the best characters ever! She was so fierce, strong, so brave and funny at times!
A real kick ass heroine! Like all of Julie Kagawa characters she was well developed, with a good background history and she looked very real. 

When we got introduced to Kanin, her creator, mentor and teacher, I though that he'd be Allie's love interest. I was wrong. Zeke got introduced and he just.. blew my mind. I think he has to be my favorite male characters of all Julie Kagawa books! 

Allie and Zeke's relationship developed very well. It wasn't insta-love (thank God). Like Meghan and Ash's romance, this one too developed gradually and surely. It wasn't the main focus of the book, which I love the most!

So, Julie Kagawa does it again. She's written an unbelievably divine book, with so many emotions in it! It's a book you don't want to miss. It's fresh, full of action with a little bit of romance.
