Book Review – The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

I finished a great book over the weekend.

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa.

I’m not one for vampire books/ movies, I have yet to read the Twilight Series but the synopsis of this one drew me in.

The book is set in a futuristic world where Vampires rule. The Vamp’s live in the Inner City while the humans live on the outskirts. Human’s are to be registered and are used as blood cattle.

Allison an unregistered lives in the outskirts of the vampire city, The Fringe with her crew. To stay alive she scavenges for food, and tries not be attacked by roaming vampires or rabids *zombie like animals/humans that are dangerous to both humans and vamps.*

Until the day she herself gets attacked and she has to make a decision, die or become one of them…..

This book really reeled me in from the get go.

Allison was a strong, independant and stubborn character that you could easily attach yourself to. She met many colourful characters along the way, some equally as strong  that you will love and others you love to hate.

I love how the book was set up into three sections. I would finish reading one section, sad that that part was over and then suddenly get sucked right back into the next part of the book.

I don’t want to give too much away but I would definitely suggest picking this one up. It’s been a long time since I’ve read a book that has drawn me in as much as this one has. I’m really looking forward to the second book in the Blood Of Eden Series and I might even stretch as far as reading her Iron Fey series…. I’m still on the fence with Iron Fey, its about Faeries…. but we will see!

Thanks to Net Galley for providing me with a copy of this book to review!

  1. I am intrigued. I don’t tend to like vampire stuff, but that’s just because it’s usually waaaay trashy. Vampires are cool!

  2. You should read Sunshine by Robin McKinley. It’s about a world with vampires and demons and witches, and it is so good. The main character is a baker and she is so fun.

    I really want to read the Imortal Rules now :-)

  3. This book sounds very interesting. But I don’t think they will have this (in English, at least) in the bookshops here… The Iron Fey sounds like my type of fiction. I hope they have it in e-book format… As this year, any packages more than 22 Euros will have to pay custom duties. (That includes shipping, which is crazy. I guess whoever set that amount is in dire need of international friends.) Anyway, have you heard of Tamora Pierce’s Circle of Magic? It was one of my favourites and one of the main characters is a spinner.
