The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
Reviewed By: A.C.
I do not read vampire novels. I do not like them. This series is probably the only vampire novel I will read, and boy is it good. If you have read the Birthmarked trilogy (which I also recommend)think of it as the city walls and hierarchy of Birthmarked but with vampires being the rich ones and the babies given to the inner city as blood instead. So similar, just so different and new and wonderful, because this time instead of finding a new town to fit into, instead try finding a human group when your a vampire. Allie is the main human, at least until she dies and comes back as part of the undead! Her vampire teacher also happens to be the most hated vampire of them all, no pressure right? She must fight her way to freedom and try not to kill her new friends who have no idea that she's a vampire.
Why I Picked it Up: I was bored and it looked interesting.
Why I Finished It: the characters are so likable and trusting, plus I liked that it was a different perspective from going from a human to a vampire midway through and not being all human or all vampire. Plus theirs is this really great love story that is twilight-ish but reversed so it is wayyyy better.
I’d Give this Book To: Anyone and everyone!
**Librarian Side Note** This author has also written another EXCELLENT series, only it's all about the Fae Folk (aka, faries!). The first book in the Iron Fey series is called The Iron King, and yes, the Library owns all the books in the series, and yes, all the books are out!
