Waiting on Wednesday (19): The Immortal Rules

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My WoW:
The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden #1)
by Julie Kagawa
Hardcover, 304 pages
Expected publication: April 24th 2012 by Harlequin Teen

Summary:

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.

Why am I waiting for The Immortal Rules? Why am I waiting for The Immortal Rules? The answer is Julie Kagawa. I haven't done a WoW in a long time but the moment Julie posted the cover reveal, I totally went ballistic. I had to feature this on my blog somehow. So here it is!

  1. Interesting. I wasn't the biggest fan of the author's first series. (I'm possibly the only one who wasn't though) This was looks interesting. I might give it a try. :)

  2. I haven't read the Iron Fey series yet but I have this one on my wishlist because I've heard good things about Julie Kagawa and this is the start of a brand new series so everyone else will be starting fresh too :)
