The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa Book Review

I loved Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey series so I was excited to read The Immortal Rules. Overall, I enjoyed the book. The book follows a girl, Allie, who lives in a world where vampires rule over humans. She hates vampires, until one day, she is turned into one. 
Allie was a great, really smart heroine. You couldn’t help but feel empathetic towards her situation and what she was going through. Everything was realistic in the way all the characters felt and handled different situations. The plot was definitely really intense as well. The thing that surprised me the most, however, was all the little bits of humor infused throughout the story. There were a few parts where I found myself laughing out loud. Also, all the characters really developed and grew as people throughout the story. I really liked the love interest Zeke, he was just so sweet and it was amazing how he always saw the good in everyone. 
The only things that I didn’t really like in this book was multiple instances of gore and some weird aspects of the society that they lived in. Besides that, this book was a good read. The book is almost 500 pages, but I never got bored. I’d give this book 31/2 out 5 stars. It’s a good book to read if you are looking for a unique read about vampires :D


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.

Teasers:

“Did he teach you how to bore you opponents to sleep? Because I think I missed that lesson - Allie” 


“The mighty hunter,” I quipped as we snuck out the backdoor, escaping into the yard. “He can take down vicious rabids and rampaging boars, but one old lady can make him flee in terror.”
“One scary old lady,” he corrected me, looking relieved to be out of the house. “You didn’t hear what she told me when I got up — you’re so cute I could put you in a pie. Tell me that’s not the creepiest thing you’ve ever heard.” His voice climbed a few octaves, turning shrill and breathy. “Today for dessert, we have apple pie, blueberry pie and Ezekiel pie.”
