The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
In the dark days since the insidious Red Lung virus decimated the human population, vampires have risen to rule the crumbling cities and suburbs. Uncontested Princes hold sway over diminished ranks of humans: their "pets." In exchange for their labor, loyalty and of course, their blood, these pets are registered, given food and shelter, permitted to survive.
Unregistered humans cling to fringes, scavenging for survival. Allison Sekemoto and her fellow Unregistereds are hunted, not only by vampires, but by rabids, the unholy result of Red Lung-infected vampires feeding on unwary humans. One night, Allie is attacked by a pack of rabids, saved by an unlikely hero...and turned vampire.
Uncomfortable in her undead skin, Allie falls in with a ragtag crew of humans seeking a cure, or cures: for Rabidism and for Vampirism. She's passing for human...for now. But the hunger is growing and will not be denied. Not for friendship—not even for love.
First of all, I love Julie Kagawa's work a bunch, and she's releasing the cover tomorrow and it will be featured on Hollywood Crush. (For more details visit her blog post on it.) I think Julie's ways of writing romance is awesome, and the Iron Fey was so awesome, and heartbreaking at the end of the Iron Queen. I cried and cried when I finished the Iron Knight, and I cried and cried with happiness. She's my favorite author by far, and I can't wait to see this new series! That's all for now, but Happy Wednesday!
