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 scavenge 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, outside 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 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.

My Review:

First off, you have no idea how much I love this author! LOVE HER! The Iron Fey series was amazing! I would totally read anything by her! When I heard that she was going to make another series about vampires. I was really excited to read it.

First Chapter: Allison lived in a house with other people. The town was filled with vampires and human just like her. Every week or so, the registers would go to the building and let the vampire feed off of them. If they missed the appointment to go to the building, they would be killed. Allison and the others are unregisters. Since they are not registers, they have to go hunt food for themselves. 

What I like about this book s the main character is really strong. She doesn't lean on anyone to protect her. She's independent. She's like a warrior. I love how she doesn't think about the guy she likes all the time. She actually is the one who protects everyone in this book. Which is amazing since I always see the guy protecting everyone. 

Zeke....oh Zeke. I wish he wasn't so clueless. He would even kill the girl he likes. What a shame. Hopefully he improves in the next book. I want him to be a man. 

It was a great book! I wouldn't say it was my favorite book of all time but I like it. I think it was kinda sow in some parts of the story. The beginning was awesome! A lot of action, loved it. The middle wasn't that great but the ending made up for it. The author gave us some hints on what is going to happen in the next book. It was quite easy to predict. I'm excited for the next book in the series! I definitely can not wait until The Lost Prince comes out! 

Overall this is a great book! If you like action books, this is definitely for you! I'm pretty sure everyone will like this book.
