The Imortal Rules by Julie Kagawa
Publisher: Harlequin Teen
Summary from Goodreads: You will kill. The only question is when.
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.
It's been a long time since I've read a good vampire book. For some reason, the vampire phase seems to be switching into a dystopian phase. Not that I mind, of course, but sometimes a girl really wants to read a vampire book! So I'm really excited for The Immortal Rules! Go vampires! (Yes, even you, Edward. You're still the classic sparkly vampire.)
Not only that, but I absolutely love all of Julie Kagawa's books. The Iron Fey series is epic! I so suggest them! Any book by Julie is automatically good, so I am really hyped for The Immortal Rules! And also, if Julie Kagawa could pull off the fairy thing, then she can definitely pull off the whole vampire thing!
Now I just need to get my fangs on this book! And get some fangs too...
