From the Review Pile (#3)

From the Review Pile is a new meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday. It's a great way to give some books I've received for review (and have yet to review on our blog) some extra love! If you're interested in this weekly post, head on over to her blog!

This week, I'm showcasing The Immortal Rules! There has been much hype around this book and I'm in the mood for something darker to read, so I couldn't be more excited to get to review it! No sissy vamps here!

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.


  1. Ooh I hope you read it soon..It was smashing!

  2. I've heard a lot about this book. Sounds really good. I haven't read her Iron Fey series either. Hope you enjoy it!


I love receiving comments! I really do read every single one and I strive to respond to each comment that needs a response (and many more!).
