“The Immortal Rules” book review & giveaway

“The Immortal Rules- Blood of Eden” by Julie Kagawa
“In the dark days since the insidious Red Lung virus decimated the human population, vampires have risen to rule the crumbling cities and suburbs. Uncontested Princes hold sway over diminished ranks of humans: their “pets.” In exchange for their labour, loyalty and of course, their blood, these pets are registered, given food and shelter, permitted to survive.
Unregistered humans cling to the fringe, scavenging for survival. Allison Sekemoto and her fellow Unregistereds are hunted, not only by vampires, but by rabids, the unholy result of Red Lung-infected vampires feeding on unwary humans. One night, Allie is attacked by a pack of rabids, saved by an unlikely hero…and turned vampire.
Uncomfortable in her undead skin, Allie falls in with a ragtag crew of humans seeking a cure, or cures: for Rabidism and for Vampirism. She’s passing for human…for now. But the hunger is growing and will not be denied. Not for friendship-not even for love. “

Jen’s Thoughts-
“The Immortal Rules- Blood of Eden” by Julie Kagawa
I loved this novel. I couldn’t put it down. The best part is it’s the beginning of a series and I already can’t wait for the next novel in the series to be released. What I loved most about this novel is it’s not your typical Vampire story. I love how the author, Julie Kagawa, with great imagination created a variety of supernatural creatures. There is just a hint of romance, with wonderful detail, adventure and suspense. This novel is a must read for anyone who likes thrillers, Vampire stories or anyone looking for a great read. I recommend this novel to anyone and everyone.
(Erica’s side notes- Jen decided to include the official synopsis of the book because she didn’t want to give anything away and hope you’ll read the book to find out what happens. As for me, I began to read the first three chapters and then had my friend Jen read the book, because of my time restraints. Just reading those first 3 chapters made me want to just keep reading. It takes you in that quickly. I can’t wait to have a chance myself to get into this book.)

  9. I’m excited because I love vampire books!

  10. The Immortal Rules is the first book in the Blood of Eden series by Julie Kagawa. The story takes place in a dystopian future where most of the human population has been decimated by a new viral plague-The Red Lung virus. Vampires now rule the world and humans are ‘registered’ blood donors in exchange for food and shelter. It’s chilling, to say the least.

    The story is told from the point of view of Allie, our main character. She’s a teen-aged Fringer, someone who lives outside the protection of the vampires; unregistered, she’s no one’s blood bag. She is determined to find a way to help the humans take back their world. Allie is a very strong, loyal and emotionally tough character; she’s had to be to get by in life. You can’t help but admire her loyalty and strength as she struggles in this strange world she lives in.

  11. I love the genre and now that I am done with school can finally read for pleasure
