Synopsis

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 also really liked how Allie struggled to keep hold of her humanity, it made her easier to relate with and made you feel for her even though she is a vampire.

The raiders viewed Allie as a weak lonely human girl who they could take advantage of little did they expect Allie would eat them for dinner as the bloodlust controls her, fulfilling Kanin’s teachings.

I also liked the fact that although it is clear the author is building up to do a series this book in itself had a nice sense of closure and that left me quite satisfied as a reader as I felt I was getting somewhere and wasn't just left with loads of unanswered questions rattling around my brain.

Julie Kagawa is really an awesome author especially with her master piece of Iron Fey Series so I wanted to explore more of her world through The Immortal Rules and I bet that its going to be an amazing read again.

Nonetheless, I really dislike when a cover doesn't reflect the character well and that's just not Allie on the cover.
