The Immortal Rules

A great antidote to 'Twilight'. The fast-paced story of Allison, a mortal turned vampire who fights against the monster inside. A great tale of good vs. evil with none of the mushy-mushy annoyances of the 'Twilight' series. Allison is a survivor -- the coolest female vampire character I've encountered. There are creatures called rabids in the mix, as well -- a sort of zombie/vampire hybrid. Here is an excerpt that explains a little of the inner struggle Allison faces: "'We are vampires...It makes no difference who we are, where we came from. Princes, Masters, rabids alike, we are monsters, cut off from humanity. They will never trust us. They will never accept us. We hide in their midst and walk among them, but we are forever separate. Damned. Alone. You don't understand now, but you will. There will come a time when the road before you splits, and you must decide your path. Will you choose to become a demon with a human face, or will you fight your demon until the end of time, knowing you will forever struggle alone?'" (471)I'm excited to read the next book in this series.
