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.

It ranks high each book of the series gets better and better each one of her books she writes I hope she writes more books to this series in the future.
She was a real talent of giving each character their own unique personality and really makes the characters come alive it is better than watching movie when you are listening to her. She really gives the right strong emotion that the books deserve and makes you want to buy all the books she does.
The Whole Series made me laugh and cry at different parts of the stories in the series.
The characters is came alive and when i was listening to The Immortal Rules it was so visual detailed and such good story that I thought I was really there in the story. I have listened to the whole series because its one of those series that you cant put down and cant wait for the next one to come out.
Yes, I would because it gives a fresh approach to the genre, by combining it with a post-apocalyptic world. I also thought it was well paced.
The personal struggle she had between what she was and what she now is made me feel for her. I hope the second book is as good as this one was.
Not a bad vampire story, targeted for a young audience I think it might have gone further and better if it wasn't kept "clean", that said it is still a good vampire story.
Allison brings a new insight into becoming a vampire, dealing with a body which has changed leaving her mind set to follow. She is a likeable character, strong and smart, facing the world around her with a lot of carriage.
While this book is not one that will have me thinking for months it is an enjoyable listen, especially for those who love supernatural and vampire books.
This is one of those books that you pick up having no idea you will love it so much. Kind of like what happened to me when I read The 5th Wave. It's one of those awesome books where you can't stop reading; where you have a strong connection with the characters, and you cannot help but root for them. I think this is, by far, the best vampire book I have ever read. The romance between a human and a vampire feels realistic, and so does the struggle both physically and mentally to fight the inner demon and keep the blood thirsty monster at bay, which Allison doesn't always succeed at. I'll admit, the part where she is training and learning the ways of the vampires was a little slow for me, but the story picked right up, and then it took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions.
On to roller coaster ride number two..
Love. Love love love. This is probably my new favorite. It had so many unexpected twists. It wasn't overly mushy. It wasn't too devastating or too happy. It was hopeful, which is something I search for in a book. It had such a perfect balance of emotion. The main character is totally respectable and I never found myself annoyed with her. This story pretty much redeemed vampires for me. This is what a real vamp looks like, people!
The worlds that Julie create are exquisitely layered and complex. It is easy to forget where you are now and get completely lost in the stories. Julie has outdone herself in The Immortal Rules and should be at the top of your must read list this summer.
"My test of a good book is dreading to begin the last chapter." - Thomas Helm
This is NOT Twilight! It's a real, true Vampire story. It's addicting. It's exhilarating. No love triangle, no sun sparkling vampires. I liked Twilight. But I grew up when Vampires were frightening and after reading a book or watching a movie w/them in it you were afraid to go to bed. This book rocks the don't turn out the light factor. It's gory. It's heart pounding. It's got a deeply interesting story line what w/the great characters & how the Rabids came to be. If you like REAL vampire stories you'll enjoy this book.
The narrator is fantastic!!!!!!
A different twist than most nosferatu stories. I enjoyed listening to it and will download the second book.
