The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa - Review

Imagine a future ruled by vampires, where rabids roam, and humans are put on registers to feed their masters. Allison hates these vampires and lives on the edge of a vampire city, scavenging for food. It's a tough life that gets much much tougher when she's attacked by rabids, found by a vampire and given the choice to die or become one of them. And thus she becomes the thing she hates most, and has to learn how to live as one. When she is forced to run from the only place she's ever known she has to pretend she's human when she finds a group of humans who are searching for a promised land. And that's hard to pull off, keeping her hunger in check, especially around Zeke. These are not sparkly romantic vampires! These are fierce, violent, dark, and bloodthirsty. And Allison is equally fierce, knowing how to survive in the Vampire City, and adjusting to vampire life once she is bitten. This is very different from the author's wonderful Iron Fey series but equally addictive.

I love vampire stories. I sink my teeth into them and enjoy.
