Recommendation Friday #12

Hi everyone! Taylor here with Recommendation Friday! This week I’m recommending one of my all time favorite books, The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa.

10215349

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 flee 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 decide what and who is worth dying for… again.

I’m not a fan of vampires so when I say The Immortal Rules is an outstanding book, I really mean it. The writing is so amazing and dark, as well as the characters. The vampire concept is so well thought out and explained. Julie really paints a very scary picture of a post apocalyptic fantasy world. All the characters are so complex and interesting, with no clear cut heroes and I love how dark this book is. It’s so brutally honest and real. I highly recommend this series, regardless of how you feel about vampires.

    I have a itty bitty copy of this book sitting on my shelves that has been there for a few years now. I got it from a fashion magazine believe it or not!
    I am curious now to read this… I always thought it was average or less than!
