Book Trailer: The Immortal Rules - Julie Kagawa

Today I want to share the trailer and the animated cover for Julie Kagawa's new book The Immortal Rules. This is the first book in her new Blood of Eden series which is set in a brutal and frightening futuristic dystopian world where humans are blood slaves to the vampires who rule the cities. Anyone who refuses to become a blood slave has to fight for survival in a world where food is scarce and everyone is living in poverty. I will be posting my review of The Immortal Rules later today but I'll tell you now that it's a fantastic book and one I'd highly recommend!

This is not your average vampire story, and these are not your average vampires. A rabid virus has killed off 6 billion humans, leaving a shell of a world, with the remains of the human population serving as blood cattle to the Vampire Prince and his followers. This is a world where vampires rule...

Allie 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 killed her mother and instil fear in the repressed population.

But after a disastrous food expedition, Allie is forced to make the decision she hoped she'd never have to face - die, or become one of them. Faced with her own mortality, Allie becomes what she despises most - a vampire. To survive, she must work with her vampire creator and learn the rules of the immortal, including the most important: go long enough without human blood, and you will go mad.

When Allie is separated from her creator, she flees into the unknown, to the world beyond the wall of her vampire city. There she joins a ragged band of humans who don't know what she is. These humans seek a legend, a cure to the Red Lung virus that decimated the population and created the rabids, the mindless creatures responsible for spreading the infection. But does such a cure exist? And can Allie prevent her vampire urges from destroying her new found family?

What do you think of this really cool animated version of the cover?
