Review: The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

Title: The Immortal Rules
Author: Julie Kagawa
Series: Blood of Eden
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Publication Date: April 24, 2012
How Received: For Review

Summary (as quoted from Amazon) :
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.

The beginning took a bit for me to get into. The Character Allison reminds me of my best friend Alison so I connected with her right away. As soon as I started into Part 2 I was captivated. The book really caught my full attention at that point. Although I was feeling Ill or tired I just couldnt put the book down. I loved Allison and Kadnin (no doubt I spelt that wrong). Stick was weak I had a strong dislike for him. Zeke is pretty decent. I do have a favorite quote from this book tho. It kind of sums up how I feel. I would not suffer anyone to endure the path I walk. My road must always be traveled alone. I will leave you with this last thought. The end of the book leaves me begging for more. Although I will say I prefer Julie kagawas Iron Fey over this book it is still worth read. So make sure you check it out.
