Title: The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden #1)

Author: Julie Kagawa

Publication: April 24th, 2012

Add: GoodReads | Amazon

Description: 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.

My Thoughts: To be completely honest, my tolerance for the vampire genre is growing low. But vampires PLUS dystopia? Now that sounds like a fun time. And after reading the Iron Fey series by Kagawa, we know that she is a great writer that will definitely be able to give this story what it needs to be an amazing read.  The only thing I'll have to worry about is a mostly annoying main character like in Iron Fey.. but that's personal opinion.

A few readers have already recieved this book as an ARC and have reviewed it. With already 264 ratings on Goodreads, it has an average of an impressive 4.42 stars. Very exciting!

I will hopefully be reading this soon. I seem to keep pushing this aside. I hope it is as good as people say. Some of my friends have been giving it 3 or 3.5 . YIKES!

Well, after you read it you'll have to let us know if it's good or not. Sure hope it is, but we all know how books can be overhyped.
