World Book Day Novel Recommendation | prettylittlewriter

In honour of today being World Book Day here in the UK, I thought I'd post something a little different.

As a writer, and currently studying English Literature at University, it is no surprise that I am a huge fan of reading. 
One particular series which jumps to mind when I think of my favourite novels is the Book of Eden series by Julie Kagawa.

I have always been into Vampire fiction, but this series just has something a little different to all the rest.

Synopsis for The Immortal Rules
Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a walled-in 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 dies and becomes one of the monsters.
Forced to flee her city, Allie must pass for human as she joins a ragged group of pilgrims seeking a legend—a place that might have a cure for the disease that killed off most of civilization and created the rabids, the bloodthirsty creatures who threaten human and vampire alike. And soon Allie will have to decide what and who is worth dying for… again.

The reason I enjoyed this series so much is as follows;
The main protagonist is a strong independent female
They live in a kind of Apocalyptic World
It reminds me of the Hunger Games
It contains a little bit of romance
The vampires are fairly traditional (no sparkles!)
It has Zombie Vampires 

I really recommend this series to anyone who loves Vampire fiction, or even those who really loved the Hunger Games novels as it is a very similar format but with Vampires!
If you would like to purchase the series, you can find them on Amazon,, Waterstones and WH Smiths.

Have you read this series? If so what are your thoughts?
