The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa: Book Review & Giveaway -- ENDED

Before I had kids, I used to read a lot of books. My husband and I visited the local used book stores as well as the library weekly. Now, with 2 kids, I don't have much time to read. I have a stack of books on my night stand that I hope to get through this summer, and it might just be wishful thinking on my part, lol. I typically don't write book reviews because I feel like I had written more than enough of those during my years in graduate school; but more importantly, I barely have enough time to read the books let alone actually provide constructive criticism on them. However, when I was asked to review the The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa, I decided to give it a try.

I figure while I am waiting for DD to finish her art classes, gymnastic lessons or when I am relaxing by the pool with the kids, I could get a little reading done. I started reading The Immortal Rules (but I haven't quite finish it yet) and I thought Kagawa's writing style was great. The scenes she created were breath taking and I truly enjoyed her writing. Furthermore,  there's wonderful depth in the characters. I am looking forward to finishing up the book (hopefully in the next few weeks). If you are a fan of vampire books, I recommend check it out.

About The Immortal Rules, the first installment in the Blood of Eden series (HarlequinTeen, $18.99):

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 the fringe, 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.
