So at first I was like.
But then she was like.
A comparable representation on the scale of awesomeness - not a literal depiction.
And then I was like.
Right away from the beginning of the novel Allie was pretty ass kicking.
And then Kanin the vampire showed up and I was like.
Yeah, sure. Whatevs.
When I first found out Kagawa was journeying down the vampire path, I was nervous. I mean, vampires have been written about over and over in the YA world and I wasn't sure what could be added. I had imaginary conversations, pleading with her, "Julie, are you sure you wanna do this?" And in all her awesomeness she pretty much told me, "Steph, chill. I got this." Do you know what I love about Julie Kagawa? I love how she can take a completely overused paranormal creature li ...more
This book was SO. AWESOME. It was nothing at all like I expected it to be, but I think that actually made the reading experience more interesting.
First off, I promise I will not make any Twitard references, no matter how strong the temptation. And believe you me, it will be almost irresistible. As a lot of reviewers have mentioned before me, Kagawa takes vampires back to their original, scary, monstrous selves... or does she?
Wow! This book is one of my new favorites for the year.
If you think you can't read another vampire book for a while because you are sick of the unoriginal plots and characters that have been around lately you are like me. Rest assured, this book is completely original and creative. For starters, vampires rule the world in this story. The Immortal Rules is set in the future, and it's humans who are going hungry and forced to find ways to get food. Vampires have the control and even reading is ill ...more

I've been reluctant to start a Julie Kagawa book ever since I heard the heroine of her Fey series described as "weak" and "constantly in need of saving", they're simply not the kind of heroines I like to read about. However, there was something in me that just couldn't ignore this whole dystopia + vampires thing she's got going on here. I guess it doesn't matter how many shitty paranormal books I read, or how much I hate Twilight, I think I'll always be that girl who grew up on Buffy - give ...more
Julie Kagawa, I am in love with you.
And I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH ARGH.
I love this so much if I knew where you live, I'd drive whatever amount of miles to give you a hug. A huge, gigantic, love-filled hug. Like this:
But I will just settle for an imaginary one for now; until I can find her address, of course ;)
If anyone can bring back vampires from slow, painful, death that Meyer inflicted on them; it's Kagawa. I cannot wait! :D
EDIT: So, I read Iron Knight and Kagawa had a couple pages of this book in there! *h ...more
Once upon a time, an author decided to combine the two most overused aspects of current YA literature––vampires and dystopia. And .... she actually wrote a book that was REALLY FREAKING AWESOME. The end.
I know, Patrick. I know. I wasn't expecting it either.
So, I admit that I know next to nothing about Julie Kagawa, except for that she wrote the Iron Fey series, which I have not read. I heard mixed things about them, and I'm not really into faerie books, so I'd decided ag ...more
edit: rewritten whole review :D
I love love love this book. It gripped me from the start and i just had to finish it - that's how good it was. I was sooooo absorbed when i was reading that i didn't even notice the time. Strong heroine, strong characters, destroyed world and vampires and zombies. Could you possibly ask for more? It's creepy, it's crazy, it's fantastic and it's fabulous story.
A vampire has no heart beat, no matter how hard they try to cling on their humanity, in the end they will remain same, some bloodsucking monsters.

The Immortal Rules has got to be one of the best vampire books out there. I mean it was unique yet it still managed to stay true to the original concept of vampires. I don’t hate sparkly vampires because they introduced my to the YA genre but the vamps here in Immortal Rules were bad, fierce and I love it. I seriously adore it.
The Immortal Rules was set in a world where vampires ruled over the humans.

Let me just say that I was not a fan of Julie Kagawa before this. I read most of her Iron Fey series, and while it was well-written, it did not draw me in. So in as much as I admire her writing, h ...more

You are a monster. You will always be a monster-there is no turning back from it. But what type of monster you become is entirely up to you.
Julie Kagawa made me believe in Faeries. Now she will make us believe in Vampires all over again.
How can I possibly describe how hugely talented Julie Kagawa is? She managed to take something old, and mold it into something completely unique and completely her own. T ...more

The man crouches down in front of the little girl and look at her with concern in his eyes.
“Daddy.” Says the little girl. “Where’s Bob?”
“Baby,” The man says with a heavy sigh. “He is gone.”
“When he is coming back?” Asks the little girl with a confuse expression.
“He’ll never come back.” The man gently runs his fingers over her chick in a comforting gesture. “You killed him.”

The first thing you have to know is that this book can hardly be compared to The Iron Fey series because they're so DIFFERENT (in the best possible way!). The only things that remain constant are Julie's talents for writing, fantastic world-building, and creating a cast ...more

Review to come.
The Immortal Rules is a very dark, on-and-off paced Post Apocalyptic which despite few weaknesses kept me hooked from start to finish. It portrays an orphan teenager Allison who is struggling to survive in the outermost circle of a vampire city by scavenging for food. Until something bad happened to her and met Kanin, who is a vampire and gave Allison a choice to continue living as a thing she hated most. To become a bloodsucking vamp.
I was slightly worried as I started this that it would be wa ...more
Lackluster mash-up of vampires & post-apocalyptic elements, 2.5 stars
In Julie Kagawa’s new BLOOD OF EDEN series, the future is a place of loss and fear: most humans have died due to a world-wide plague and those who remain are controlled by vampire lords in guarded cities. Allie scrapes out a life on the edge of society as one of the humans beyond notice of the vampires. But after she is attacked, she must make a decision: die or become that which she despises? In her new form, Allie must ba ...more
What an interesting world. Humans are now the property of vampires and must be registered. They must report to give blood once a month and are treated as cattle. The unregistered lived their lives under the radar, lacking food and resources. Outside the walled cities, the rapids live and attack those who v ...more
You are a monster. You will always be a monster—there is no turning back from it. But what type of monster you become is entirely up to you.
The Immortal Rules is not for everyone.
Luckily, it was so for me.
The Immortal Rules is a great book, and quite possibly my favorite vampire book (but keep in mind I haven't read many). It's pretty slow to start, and it really didn't have me engaged up until 30% or so, and from that point up until 75%, I thought I was in love. It seems I'm one of the few pe ...more
I think this is one of those cases of "It's not you, it's me", because I honestly don't know why I didn't like this one as much as I thought I would. I loved the idea of cities being controlled by vampires, we see the world from the point of view of a main character recently turned into a vampire, so all the elements were there. It was action-packed, the main character wasn't a whiny poof, and there was no insta-love. Yet I remain unimpressed for some reason. I was bored despite the act ...more
In this dark future, humans are ruled by vampires.
They are scarce cities, and which one is ruled by a master vampire, a Prince.
The humans are registered and branded like "cattle". They must obey and they must give blood donations. All in exchange of protection and food.
Protection from what exactly?
From the rabids, a sort of zombiefied and mindless creatures, that are a threat for humans and vampires.
Allie, our heroine,is Unregistered and she lives with her "crew" in The Fringe,the outermost ...more

“One scary old lady,” he corrected me, looking relieved to be out of the house. “You didn’t hear what she told me when I got up — you’re so cute I could put you in a pie. Tell me that’s not the creepiest thing you’ve ever heard.” His voice climbed a few octaves, turning shrill and breathy. “Today for dessert, we have apple pie, blueberry pie and Ezekiel pie.”
