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.

    " Great book, disappointed with the ending. "

    " I honestly thought that I was done with the whole vampire genre. That I'd read everything there was, and that everything I hadn't read were just variations over the same old basic theme. But then I read "The Immortal Rules". If course this novel does have some similarities with other books of the genre - how could it not? But at the same time, Julie Kagawa manages to give it a new spin. Allie was an awesome main character and leading lady, and in general this novel was just really well thought out, executed and written. Definitely recommendable! "

    " Good but a bit to predictable at times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Krista | 1/6/2014

    " Loved this book! It was definitely more than a typical vampire book. I am very impressed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 1/5/2014

    " A gripping story about a Fringer (unregistered human) in a post-apocalyptic world run by vampires; the hook is that she gets turned almost immediately (not a spoiler--it's in the flap copy) but tries to stay human in her actions. What I most enjoyed about this book was NOT the teen romance, the sword-fighting, or the hunt for Eden (a humans-only city), but what I enjoy most about all vampire narratives: the part where the vampire passes as human. I love a passing narrative. What can I say. That said, I don't think I'll read the inevitable string of sequels. I got what I needed. "

    " Amazing, it got my attention once I began reading it "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daisy | 12/12/2013

    " FABULOUS! MY FAVORITE AUTHOR HAS BLOWN ME AWAY AGAIN! Julie Kagawa wrote a captivating tale with incredible character development and a genuinely interesting storyline. To be honest, when I started this book, I was hesitant, and wasn't sure if Julie could keep up with the high expectations that came from the brilliant Iron Fey series. However, this story was amazing, and a breath of fresh air from the mundane and suffocatingly large collection of teen vamp novels already out there. A total MUST-READ! "

    " This book had so many different aspects to it, I absolutely loved reading about Allion's struggles. One of my favourite books :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rena | 11/24/2013

    " This one started off very slow for me, and then right when it started getting interesting and exciting-it was all over!!! Good start for a series, and I'm excited to see where this story goes next. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 산드라 | 11/8/2013

    " It seemed to lack a bit of something from the Iron Fey series, but I will still be reading the next book in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melanie | 10/30/2013

    " I have decided that there will be no review for this book as I am tight on schedule and I am currently reading The Eternity Cure for review. Overall, 3.5 stars "

    " Awesome :) had me on the edge of my seat the whole way through, romance and action, perfect combination. "

    " Very intriguing I couldn't put it down. Some parts I wasn't happy with it others I was happy with it. I didn't like the ending though... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Coral | 9/20/2012

    " I gave this book 4 stars as although I really really enjoyed reading it there were times when I just wanted to stop reading it which I'm really glad that I didn't do as this book was incredible towards the end and I now cannot wait for a second book to come out and find out wot happens to Allison :) "

    " It was a fun read,i was at wal-mart when i laid eyes on this book & it was love at first sight, the cover drew me in & i don't regret it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eugene Gorodinsky | 5/13/2012

    " The most fascinating postapocalyptic world I've ever encountered and the most interesting portrayal of the vampire image so far: with a perpetual internal battle between an outer monster and an inner human. Looking forward to the sequels. "
