Tuesday's Novel Spotlight (41)

Welcome, welcome, welcome my little children into the world. Your mission is to please us readers by letting us read your story and find out what you are all about. There are many of you, but only a few of you will truly reign. Only one of you though will sit on the throne. This week it's;

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa!

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 savage 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, outsider 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 the 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.

The Story: Like all other vampire stories, it sounds the same. I mean it sounded pretty cool but then the love was thrown in and I just about died myself. Why do authors feel the need to add love to every vampire novel? Just make it with no love! Seriously!

The Cover: The cover is beautiful though. If it were for the cover alone I would get it. I love the blood from the eye and the sort of background texture it has on the whole image. I actually want to go see what it looks like in person.

The Verdict: This one is a pass. I'm sick and tired of vampire novels that involve love and it's seriously like beating a dead horse. It's done and over with and I don't know why it's still around.
