Book Description

April 24 2012 Blood of Eden
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.

Review

Allie is a terrific heroine-tough, pragmatic, yet sympathetic-and readers will be hungry to see where her story goes. Kagawa wraps excellent writing and skillful plotting around a well-developed concept and engaging characters, resulting in a fresh and imaginative thrill-ride that deserves a wide audience.

-- *Starred* Publishers Weekly review

"Action packed, rife with drama and moral

quandaries, and laced with an impossible romance, this first in the Blood of Eden series will hit the mark

with readers who like some supernatural in their dystopias and don't mind a bloody sword fight." -- Booklist

"Allie's a smart, strong and compelling heroine, and readers will gladly join her for this adrenaline-rich ride."

-- Kirkus Reviews

4.0 out of 5 stars Demons of blood Feb. 22 2014
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Cities are ruled by vampire Princes. Books are outlawed. Humans are treated as cattle, and sometimes disappear. Rabids and cannibal mole-men prey on the ones who stray.

That's the world of "The Immortal Rules," the first book of Julie Kagawa's postapocalyptic vampire series. It's very different from her colorful, shimmering faerie books -- this is a dark, bloody, violent story about a world that has crumbled almost beyond recognition, with little hope left.

On their way back from a food raid, Allie and her gang are attacked by rabids. A vampire named Kanin offers her either a quick death, or un-life as a vampire. Despite her hatred for all things vampiric, Allie chooses the latter -- and Kanin spends the next few months teaching her all about how to be a vampire.

But after the vampire Prince's soldiers attack, Allie finds herself adrift in the world outside the city, with nothing but a katana and her vampire powers. She ends up joining a disillusioned minister and his followers, including the pure-hearted Zeke.

It turns out that this ragtag bunch are searching for a legendary city that is free of vampires and rabids, and they believe vampires are "demons." If they discover who and what Allie is, they'll kill her. But when they are attacked by the malevolent Jackal, Allie sets out to save them anyway...

Not a lot of authors write about vampires in a postapocalyptic/dystopian future... which is too bad, because if vampires existed it would be a realistic outcome. After all, why would vampires with super-strength, super-speed and super-senses hide in the shadows when they could literally rule the world?

The most striking part of this book is just how harrowing it is.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 Stars June 25 2013
By SIKBookReviewer TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
My thoughts while reading: Not sure if it's because I'm not in the mood. Or because I'm feeling like I need a break from the whole blogging/review request thing. But, so far, not so good. It's taking me longer to get through it than it should. I basically have to force myself to read it and when I do, I don't read for very long. It captured me at first and I thought it was going to be great, but then I got bored of it. I'm also kind of sick of vampire books at the moment. However, after finishing the novel...

I thought that the story was good, but felt bored during the non-action parts. The action scenes, however, I really enjoyed and didn't want to put the book down during them.

The characters were decent. Allison, the main character and narrator of the novel, is very spunky, which I love. I liked her a lot as a human. She was strong-willed and tough, but also caring. I didn't like her as much as a vampire, maybe because she didn't actually change very much when I felt like she should have. Even though Allison went through a big change, there wasn't much character growth.

I didn't overly care for Zeke (the love interest), but I didn't completely dislike him either. He seemed to me to be a weak character and weak as a person as well. He was a bit of a pushover/follower.

There seemed to be a definite emphasis on strong females in this book.

I would recommend The Immortal Rules to people who are fans of vampire books. I will be reading the second book, The Eternity Cure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! April 25 2013
Format:Hardcover
Are vampire evil demons who only care about blood, destined to live an immortal lonely life? Allison's vampire creator tells her that she'll "always be a monster. There is no turning back from it. But what type of monster you become is entirely up to you."

Allison has such will power it's impossible not to join her team. I was put off reading this book due to its big volume (it's big, 485 pages). Surprisingly, the pages kept turning themselves with all the action and romance imaginable. The characters were versatile and interesting. Like Jeb who was always hiding something. And Zeke, a love interest, completely worth it. I couldn't get enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Series! Feb. 11 2013
By fredamans TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
For fans of Julies' Iron Fey series, the first thing I have to tell you before reading this book is forget what you read there. This series is completely different, and if you're looking for the same gushiness, re-read those books.
This is all about vampires, though not the conventional vampires one might think of.
Imagine a society where vampires ruled and humans were slaves or pets. All this happening in a dysotopian society. Like, really imagine it.... cool right?!
And this story is. Very cool in fact.
Julies' style of writing is amazing and has an ease that makes 5 hundred and something pages go by quick. You just get immersed in the story and can't put it down.
Though this is another one I wouldn't read at night if home alone by myself. I'd get nightmares for sure... but during the day it was on like Donkey Kong, and it flew by!
I can't wait for book 2!! And suggest you get reading this series too!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Immortal Rules May 16 2012
By Avery Greaves TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
I have read a number of reviews where people have stated that this book has been their most favourite of 2012- unfortunately I am not amongst those people. That is not to say that this is a bad book- far from it! In fact, I believe this book to be Julie's strongest book to date. However, I just don't feel that it fully reached its potential on the vampire front. I wish that Julie had brought something new to the table, showed us a completely new race of vampires, vampires literally unlike any we have ever seen fore and not the stereotypical kick-butt, all black/ leather wearing female who wields a katana (seriously, off of the top of my head I can name at least 5 female vampires who wield one of these- I wish that Allie *had* been able to convince Kanin to let her use a flail) she presented in this story.

Furthermore, I also had a problem with the the romance aspect of it- namely being, I didn't buy it. Nothing about Zeke and Allie screamed "Sparks!" and "Chemistry!" to me, which I find quite strange because if there is any even a tiny of inclination of romance in a book I AM ALL OVER IT (me= hopeless romantic). I personally found that they made a better team being friends/ comrades than girlfriend/ boyfriend.

That being said, I think that this book (specifically Allie as a character) has one of the strongest voices I have ever read (in all honesty I don't usually pay attention to things like this, but I couldn't help but not notice this as I read the book). Allie was not only a complex and beautifully constructed character, but a real one at that.
