Description: 
To survive in a ruined world, she must embrace the darkness...
Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a walled-in 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 dies and becomes one of the monsters.
Forced to fell her city, Allie must pass for human as she joins a ragged group of pilgrims seeking a legend-a place that might have a cure for the disease that killed off most of civilization and created the rabids, the bloodthirsty creatures who threaten human and vampire alike. And soon Allie will have to decided what-and who-is worth dying for..again.
Enter Julie Kagawa's dark and twisted world as an unforgettable journey begins. ~Amazon

Teaser Sentence(s):
'Zeke's snort sounded suspiciously like laughter. "Allie, you're a beautiful, exotic-looking vampire girl with a katana. Trust me, if anyone is going to attract attention, it's not going to be me."' **

My Thoughts:

I have been on a dark YA reading spree lately it seems. I guess I am a sadist for angst and suffering. the Immortal Rules delivered on all the darkness I was looking for. Julie Kagawa is a very talented Author. Just like in her other series, she makes you feel apart of the world she has created.
 There were a few slow parts through out reading Immortal Rules, but all-in-all it was a good read. I really liked how the Vampire hierarchy was set-up. And I really enjoyed the characters. Allison was a great protagonist. I liked how she chose to stay around humans, and try to hang on to her humanity. Zeke was also great. I really hope Allison meets him again one day. I look forward to the next book in this series, because hopefully Kanin will return. He was probably my favorite character, and he wasn't even around for the second half of the story. I would recommend this book to anyone who was looking for dark YA vampire story.
