The Immortal Rules
By Julie Kagawa
Writting this review for me is not easy, so first I will start with what I loved about this book. First, I love Julie Kagawa and her work, I'm in love with The Iron Fey series, also of Julie Kagawa, so I expected a lot of this book. I read a comment that once Julie said that she didn't want to write a vampire book, because there were so many of them already, and I agree, although she manage to make a different story, it still remind me about some books previously read, including Black City of Elizabeth Richards, and Morganville Vampires Series of Rachel Caine. This feeling was soon washed out when the action started, Allie is such an unexpected character, I mean she is rude and brave, someting different in a main character, and Kanin OMG, he is awesome, I like that he is not the cool guy with all the anwers he is just a vampire trying to get on with his life and fix some of his biggest mistakes, I loooved that fact that they two weren't and issue, that have been such a cliche.
This book tells us the story of Allie's journey, between being a human starving to death all time, and worrying of being eaten, to being a newborn vampire not wanting to turn into a monster but realizing this is maybe her only choice.
Discovering her alternatives, Allie decides to help a group of humans she met, and the adventures begin. Allie struggles between trying to keep them alive and not to eat them, and also with the feelings she is having for this sweet and noble guy Zeke, who will give his live for the other humans with him. The story between Zeke and Allie is not concluded, although it is obvious they like each other, we still need to see what will happen next. I'm excited about seeing them together, but will that be possible in a post apocaliptic world, in which you are either food or starving?
In order not to spoil more this book, I will stop my review here, in the end it was a good book, I didn't love it, but really liked it, I must read tne next book in the series.

About the author...
Julie Kagawa was born in Sacramento, California. But nothing exciting really happened to her there. So, at the age of nine she and her family moved to Hawaii, which she soon discovered was inhabited by large carnivorous insects, colonies of house geckos, and frequent hurricanes. She spent much of her time in the ocean, when she wasn't getting chased out of it by reef sharks, jellyfish, and the odd eel.
