Blog Tour: The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa: Spotlight and International Giveaway (Giveaway Now Closed!)


About the Book:
This is not your average vampire story, and these are not your average vampires. A rabid virus has killed off 6 billion humans, leaving a shell of a world, with the remains of the human population serving as blood cattle to the Vampire Prince and his followers. This is a world where vampires rule...

Allie 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 killed her mother and instil fear in the repressed population.

But after a disasterous food expedition, Allie is forced to make the decision she hoped she'd never have to face - die, or become one of them. Faced with her own mortality, Allie becomes what she despises most - a vampire. To survive, she must work with her vampire creator and learn the rules of the immortal, including the most important: go long enough without human blood, and you will go mad.

When Allie is separated from her creator, she flees into the unknown, to the world beyond the wall of her vampire city. There she joins a ragged band of humans who don't know what she is. These humans seek a legend, a cure to the Red Lung virus that decimated the population and created the rabids, the mindless creatures responsible for spreading the infection. But does such a cure exist? And can Allie prevent her vampire urges from destroying her new found family?

In Julie Kagawa's new world Vampires are the ones at the top of the chain leaving humans as cattle. Allie is part of the humans who refuse to let the vampires take blood from them so they live outside of the other humans and have to scavenge for food and anything else they might want and try not to get caught. On one of those scavenging trips she is attacked and almost dead when a mysterious vampire offers to turn her. She doesn't want to die so she agrees to become one of the things she hates most.

Allie was very likable. When she was human she stood up for her beliefs and the people she cared about and when she was turned she stepped up to the plate and learned all she would need to survive without loosing her loyalty and values. THE IMMORTAL RULES was nicely paced with a few slow moments. The history of the world that her characters live in was nicely revealed and explained. The action was packed in and engaging. This was a pretty long book coming in at almost 500 pages but I never got bored or felt like it was dragging on.
