To survive in a ruined world, she must embrace the darkness…

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 was surprised positively by ’The Immortal Rules’. I expected a simple and default Vampire novel. But instead the book fascinated me from the beginning and it was hard to stop reading because I had to do my homework or stuff like this. In the middle of the book the thrilling wasn’t as intensive as at the beginning but after that it was back with full force! Allie is a perfect protagonist. She is funny, friendly and sensitive. Kanin was funny too even if he was there only at the beginning… Zeke was a bit naive but nevertheless a great character. Of course there are some people you don’t like that much, like Ruth, Rat and Sarren, but that’s part of a great book. I’m curious if Allie manages in the next book to do all the stuff which isn’t done yet! I’m just able to fill out the time until the next book is coming out here (04/11/16) with reading other good books.
