Waiting on Wednesday: The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.



THE IMMORTAL RULES (Blood of Eden #1) by Julie Kagawa
Publisher: Harlequin
Publication date: 4/24/2012
Pages: 304
Age range: 14 years
Series: Blood of Eden Series
In the dark days since the insidious Red Lung virus decimated the human population, vampires have risen to rule the crumbling cities and suburbs. Uncontested Princes hold sway over diminished ranks of humans: their "pets." In exchange for their labor, loyalty and of course, their blood, these pets are registered, given food and shelter, permitted to survive.

Unregistered humans cling to fringes, scavenging for survival. Allison Sekemoto and her fellow Unregistereds are hunted, not only by vampires, but by rabids, the unholy result of Red Lung-infected vampires feeding on unwary humans. One night, Allie is attacked by a pack of rabids, saved by an unlikely hero...and turned vampire.

Uncomfortable in her undead skin, Allie falls in with a ragtag crew of humans seeking a cure, or cures: for Rabidism and for Vampirism. She's passing for human...for now. But the hunger is growing and will not be denied. Not for friendship—not even for love.(

I don't know about you but I ADORED The Iron Fey Series! I can't wait to see how Kagawa portrays her vampires.

So this is my pick. What are you waiting for?

I SO can't wait for this. What a great choice. I'm also waiting for Divergent II, Surrender by Elana Johnson and a ton of other books.

I'm currently reading the Iron Fey series and I'm loving it so far - now to see that she is going for a vampire series? I *have* to have this when it comes out! o_O I simply must have it! LOL

This is definitely a book to wait for! :) Great choice!

The Immortal Rules is a new take on vampires, in here they govern the cities and are the ones in power, they don't sparkle nor are sweet and caring, they are bloodsucking monsters who see humans as a food source and that's it. Of course as everything there is the exception to the rule and here comes our newly converted heroine, Allie and if I'm being generous I will also include her sire, Kanin in this not-so-bad-vampire category.

Since the first page we see Allie's struggle and what she have to deal with everyday to survive. We see her strength, compassion and courage. After her transformations she is still the same Allie, but now she is dealing with new inner conflicts. She is trying to hold to her humanity and not become a monster more.
