Can’t get enough of Julie Kagawa’s Iron Fey series? She has a new series : The Blood of Eden and the first book,released today, is titled The Immortal Rules. Immortal Rules much like the Iron Fey features an amazingly strong young woman who is very quickly given a choice no one would want: Become a vampire or die. Obviously, she doesn’t choose death. The book is fast moving, funny and you very quickly fall in love with the characters. I am becoming weary of so many of the post-apocalyptic novels but this one had a completely different spin on things than any other novel that I’ve read. The ending provides you with just enough closure to feel good but leaves enough unanswered to make you want more. Julie Kagawa is an excellent story teller and I am eagerly awaiting the next in The Blood of Eden series. For a great Q&A with Julie Kagawa click here.

“Bewitching can be a beast. . . . Once, I put a curse on a beastly and
arrogant high school boy. That one turned out all right. Others didn’t. I go to
a new school now-one where no one knows that I should have graduated long ago.
I’m not still here because I’m stupid; I just don’t age. You see, I’m immortal.
And I pretty much know everything after hundreds of years-except for when to
take my powers and butt out. I want to help, but things just go awry in ways I
could never predict. Like when I tried to free some children from a gingerbread
house and ended up being hanged. After I came back from the dead (immortal,
remember?), I tried to play matchmaker for a French prince and ended up banished
from France forever. And that little mermaid I found in the Titanic lifeboat? I
don’t even want to think about it. Now a girl named Emma needs me. I probably
shouldn’t get involved, but her gorgeous stepsister is conniving to the core. I
think I have just the thing to fix that girl-and it isn’t an enchanted pumpkin.
Although you never know what will happen when I start . . . bewitching“
