Review: The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

    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.

    First Line: "They hung the unregistereds in the old warehouse district; it was a public execution, so everyone went to see."

    Review: I would have to say this is the first true vampire book I have picked up in a long time they just haven't striked my interest in a while and only reason I bought this was because I got it for a really good price and I remember seeing all these reviews on how amazing this book was so I thought why not and boy do I regret not jumping on the bandwagon when The Immortal Rules first came out ( although I'm glad I did wait since now that the series is over I can binge read on it) this book was so fantastically written I couldn't pull myself away from it.

    What I loved the most about The Immortal Rules was it was not all sparkle and swoon worthy vampires...no these vampires were the stuff of nightmares that vampires have been depicted throughout history, bloodthirsty predators. And there were rabids these things were scary and just as deadly and the concept about how they came to be was quite interesting.

    As for Allison I loved her I liked how Kagawa kept Allison real as well, she had the thirst for blood and was constantly at battle with herself wanting to feed off people she started to care about and trying to fight to keep her humanity as much as she could. At first I thought it was going to be the whole she will drink animal blood to get by but Kagawa put that to an end real quick Allison had to feed off humans to satisfy her hunger. The human Allison was brave as it already was but when she turned into a vampire she just became that much more fierce and bad ass especially when wielding that Katana of hers making her that much more awesome. The love interest was Zeke and I'm still not a hundred percent sure how I feel about him being a match for Allison, he is an amazing caring wonderful person who made many sacrifices to get his people to safety but I still didn't feel the spark between the two. As a character I like Zeke but as a love interest for Allison I'm not sure right now.

    Overall the world building and the post-apocalyptic vampire run world created was brilliant and I can't wait to start reading the next book in the series.

    Memorable Quotes:~ "You are a monster.” Kanin’s deep voice droned in my head again, as I forced myself to move, to walk away. “You will always be a monster, there is no turning back from it. But what type of monster you become is entirely up to you."
