In a future world, Vampires reign. Humans are blood cattle. And one girl will search for the key to save humanity. 
Allison 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 keep humans as blood cattle. Until the night Allie herself is attacked—and given the ultimate choice. Die… or become one of the monsters. Faced with her own mortality, Allie becomes what she despises most. To survive, she must learn the rules of being immortal, including the most important: go long enough without human blood, and you will go mad. Then Allie is forced to flee into the unknown, outside her city walls. There she joins a ragged band of humans who are seeking a legend—a possible cure to the disease that killed off most of humankind and created the rabids, the mindless creatures who threaten humans and vampires alike. But it isn't easy to pass for human. Especially not around Zeke, who might see past the monster inside her. And Allie soon must decide what—and who—is worth dying for.
 My Thoughts:
This was the first book that I had ever read by Julie Kagawa and I found this book to be absolutely thrilling and extremely interesting. I sure as hell, want to read her other books as this was so addictive and I would love to read more of her work.

This was stunning way to start a new series. The Immortal Rules was an original story that I can only say one negative thing about, and that was the fact that this book was long and it felt like it could have been several book that were joined together. However, it was still extremely addictive and fun to read, despite the length.

Allie was a kick-butt character and I think she is very relatable as she has struggled, basically—since birth, and we all struggle in life and it was easy to admire her as a character, as her struggles only made her stronger and more independent and it was incredibly interesting to see how she handled all the obstacles she had to overcome and the curve-balls she had thrown at her.

Kagawa did a great job with keeping me entertained throughout this book as she knows exactly when to throw curve-balls, throughout this book there were mini climaxes that made the book so enjoyable, especially with her flawless writing style!

This book is about vampire’s and that may throw some people off, but whether you are burned out or not, I suggest you read this because this book was a dystopian in my opinion that was what is was due to the vampires, having over run the city and they now use people for blood. The concept of this book was incredible and so much fun as it added the thrill of the action and adventure.

The character’s were so much fun to read about, I adored Caleb and could imagine him perfectly in my mind, if you love vampires, babies, kick-butt heroines and dystopian societies; I recommend that you read this amazing book!
