Product Description

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

I rarely re-read books. Too many books, too little time but I'm also a little hesitant to re-read a book that I loved because I'm afraid that it won't have the same impact on me. Or, the fear that I won't have the same love for the book or characters that I had the first time around.

I read The Immortal Rules for the first time almost 4 years ago and since then I've suggested it to countless friends (who have loved it!) and customers at the library where I work. When I first describe it as 'a dystopian read about vampires' some people shut down the idea right away. Perhaps they're tired of vampires in general but this series is different from other vamp tripe out there. It's a smartly written story with great characters and a non-stop pace. I'm not a big fan of Kagawa's other series (Iron Fey or Talon) but this The Blood of Eden series is amazing.

Just like my first read through, Kagawa took me into her world and didn't let go until the last sentence. I read this book in a couple of days and even though I still remembered how things would pan out for Allie I was riveted. I love the idea of this young girl suddenly having to embrace something that she's feared her whole life as she struggles with the monster within her. She's a strong, self-sufficient girl who readers can relate to right from the beginning. She makes mistakes but she's fiercely loyal and just trying to figure out how to deal with her new lot in 'life'.

After re-reading this book I'm more than eager to re-read the second book in the series, The Eternity Cure (which was also amazing!!!), followed by The Forever Song, the third book in the trilogy which I have yet to read but has been on my Kindle for years. Shameful, I know.

This book had absolutely everything I love in a book, thematically:

-Dystopian world
-Vampires
-Zombies (rabids)
-A normal person starting out in their normal world and finding themselves in a fantasy-esque landscape (becoming a vampire)

I just couldn't go wrong with this book – and I wasn't disappointed. I absolutely love Kagawa's writing style, and this book was my first introduction to her work. She's written a very strong female lead, which is just amazing. Compared to books like Twilight, which focuses on a female lead who's shy and just completely obsessed with boys – Kagawa's book is a refreshing take on the vampire genre.

The book is fast paced and you never once feel like a bit of the book should have been edited out.

Her vampires are not sexy and sparkly – they are demons with human faces. Severe, monstrous, and predatory. Her future world is not an easy life – it's ridiculously hard to survive in and even if you do, you're certainly not living comfortably.

Despite it being published by Harlequin Teen (which I, at first, had reservations about), there's no grand lovestory that encompasses the entire book. There is, eventually, a love interest – but our protagonist, Allison, is not so infatuated with him that it takes away from the rest of the story.

Kagawa's writing style has impacted me to the point that she's now one of my favourite authors – I look forward to reading her Iron Fey series when I can get my hands on them.

The one complaint I do have – which doesn't impact the book itself at all – is the cover. Our protagonist is Asian (perhaps a Japanese background), and the girl on the cover just does NOT look Asian. It is a lovely cover – but I found it to be another example of an inacurate portrayal of the protagonist it's supposed to depict.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Feb. 22 2014
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.
