The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden #1) is one of those books that takes you - first - by surprise and - second - for the ride of your life. It is anything but another vampire book. It's a romance that leaves you wanting more... hoping for more.
Equally amazing for me is the fact that Julie Kagawa wrote The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden #1). I read and loved The Iron King, The Iron Daughter, The Iron Queen, and The Iron Knight. If I didn't know Julie Kagawa was the author of both series, I never would have suspected. Everything about them (the writing, the characters, the switch from fantasy to paranormal) is so different. Don't get me wrong, The Immortal Rules is as good as any book in The Iron Fey Series. This book just shows how versatile Julie Kagawa can be and what a wonderful author she really is.
Allison Sekemoto reminds me of Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games #1). She does what she needs to do to survive and protect the few people she loves. Then, there's Zeke. What can I say about him? Morally and ethically he's her equal, but unfortunately, he's been brainwashed his entire life to hate that which she's become. I don't want to give anything away, so I won't elaborate. Just trust me on this. Allie and Zeke's journey is one worth taking!
