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.

BEST VAMPIRE STORY EVER!!!!
No. Each version has it's own unique experience. While I have not read the print version of "The Immortal Rules" I would expect a very good but different experience.
The Percy Jackson & the Olympians series would be a similar experience. While the subject matter isn't exactly the same it does feature a well written story with a great performance!
It also contains a very well fleshed out world with a solid basis on mythology. It just focuses on Greek Mythology over Vampire. So it may not appeal to those who are looking for a well written series about vampires. However, it will appeal to anyone interested in a good Fantasy series. And with it's solid voice acting, you will have weeks of entertainment!
Well, that would have to be the title character of Allison. I love strong female characters. I love even more that she is simply a strong character without having to justify why she is so strong. She just is. That's nice to see.
I also love how she struggles with what to do now that she is a vampire. "What is right? What is wrong? How should she be a vampire?" All nice to see in a character. She struggles with what is right and in the end chooses good.
I like how different this book is from many other Vampire stories. I haven't really seen a character struggle with morality so much. Allison tries to figure out what to do with this new "life" she has been given. How to deal with her "inner demon."
And as she encounters more and more "faces" of humanity, you begin to realize that there more demons out there than just her and the Ravids. Will she become a demon with a human face or become something completely different. This struggle reminds me of the struggle within us all. How we really aren't that different. Julie Kagawa shows us the best of our nature and our worst. Something we may not be willing to face on our own.
