More About the Author

Julie Kagawa was born in Sacramento, California. But nothing exciting really happened to her there. So, at the age of nine she and her family moved to Hawaii, which she soon discovered was inhabited by large carnivorous insects, colonies of house geckos, and frequent hurricanes. She spent much of her time in the ocean, when she wasn't getting chased out of it by reef sharks, jellyfish, and the odd eel.

When not swimming for her life, Julie immersed herself in books, often to the chagrin of her schoolteachers, who would find she hid novels behind her Math textbooks during class. Her love of reading led her to pen some very dark and gruesome stories, complete with colored illustrations, to shock her hapless teachers. The gory tales faded with time, but the passion for writing remained, long after she graduated and was supposed to get a real job.
To pay the rent, Julie worked in different bookstores over the years, but discovered the managers frowned upon her reading the books she was supposed to be shelving. So she turned to her other passion: training animals. She worked as a professional dogtrainer for several years, dodging Chihuahua bites and overly enthusiastic Labradors, until her first book sold and she stopped training to write full-time.

Julie now lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where the frequency of shark attacks are at an all time low. She lives with her husband, two obnoxious cats, one Australian Shepherd who is too smart for his own good, and the latest addition, a hyper-active Papillon puppy.

Julie is the author of the bestselling Iron Fey series. The Iron Knight the fourth title in The Iron Fey series publishes in Jan 2012. The Immortal Rules, the first title in a brand new series publishes in May 2012.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark and clever 14 Mar 2012
By PD VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have read a lot of vampire and paranormal fiction and when I received this book I did think that it would be the same sort of story, a romance with a few sharp teeth thrown in. Actually, it was nothing like that! The book reminded me a lot of 'The Passage' by Justin Cronin. It's a dark look at vampires, there are no romantic bloodsuckers in this book.

We begin the story with Allie, surviving in the fringes of a vampire city. She is an unregistered human, meaning that the vampires do not feed from her. This also means that she has to scavenge or steal food to survive. She lives with her gang in a run down building. The world has suffered a disaster in that most humans were wiped out by a virus, vampires have taken over and outside the city are rabids (think zombie type creatures). So Allie is doing the best that she can, staying off the radar of vampires and getting by. She hates the vampires and dreams of a time when humans will rise up and reclaim their place in the world.

One night while out scavenging Allie is caught by a rabid and then then given the choice of immortal life by a master vampire. Will she choose to become something that she reviles or die? Well you can probably guess...

Anyway there is a bit of romance when Allie meets Zeke, a human looking for a place called Eden where he and his friends will be safe from vampires.

I gave this story four stars instead of five because the parts of the story dealing with the virus and possible cure for rabidism reminded me too much of other books and films, like 'The Passage' and 'I am Legend'.

I enjoyed it and would read more books in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great new vampire series 1 Mar 2012
By Mrs W. VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I am a fan of Julie Kawaga's Iron Fey series so I was very excited to have the opportunity to read this, especially as a lover of vampire and supernatural books. It did not disappoint, it is a different take on a much used and abused subject.

Vampire's rule the world following a disease that has wiped out most of the population, the human's are kept almost like cattle, registered, fed and kept in exchange for blood. The main character Allie, is an "unregistered" scraping by everyday just to get enough to eat. After the worst happens and Allie is turned her whole life takes a new direction and she struggles to cope with the guilt and betrayal of her friends. The book really took off for me when she met Zeke and his band of travelers searching for mythical Eden. Hiding her vampirism and coping with the hunger becomes her biggest battle, as well as trying to supress her feelings for Zeke.

I quickly became drawn into her world and cared about the characters. I read it in just a couple of days as I could not put it down! It is refreshing to read a book where vampires are portrayed as monsters rather than mysterious and brooding romance interests! I will definitely be looking out for the sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teen fiction? No WAY! 28 July 2013
By Sarccy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I did not realise when I first bought this that it was aimed for Teenagers.

Seeing the state of teen fiction at the moment I avoid it like the plague- for me the plots are silly, characters are one dimensional and without common sense or any likeable traits and plot is non-existent.

One I first saw this, it was from a free Kindle package sneak preview with two other books, this one stayed with me and I have been trying to find a decent hard copy but alas no. When I saw it was £2.99 I grabbed as as the first couple of chapters I got to read were mind blowing.

Set in a post-apocalyptic future with vampires and zombies and other creatures, we haven't met any yet but the world is big- the main female character is a strong like able girl just surviving the best she can.
She has brains, common sense, personality and her emotions and her actions are believable for both her character and what a human being would do in that situation.

I could not put this book down.

This teen series does not full into the usual pit traps- there is a bit of romance- but the way it is dealt with, the actions and the conclusion- just wow.

The author really could have just gone with the flow with what a lot of writers in Teen paranormal have done- but she hasn't. And it just makes it that much better. This is not some silly teen romance, this is a heart wrenching tale of survival of one girl and of others in a post-apocalyptic world where vampires rule and humans are just glorified pets and food and the world is not healing.

Until the character pointed out her age you would not think this was aimed for teenagers, the realistic feel of both the world and the characters puts this book way above any of it's counter parts.

A fantastic read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A compelling and exciting read. I want more!! 14 May 2012
Format:Paperback
This book is set in the future, a future where vampires are rulers and humans are just their cattle. Some humans choose to comply and register themselves, in exchange for their blood they are given food to survive. The rest, the unregistered, are treated like the rats, they have to forage and steal their food to survive. We meet Allie an unregistered human; she hates vampires with a passion. When a food scavenge goes horribly wrong in the ruins outside the walled city, Allie is left on the brink of death after being savaged by the rabids, (these are a cross between zombies and vampires,) Allie has the choice to accept death or be turned into a vampire and live. Bearing in mind the hatred Allie has for vampires this is a pretty big deal! If she does decide to go down the vampire route then her life as she knows it will be no more.

I have to say that at first I did struggle to settle into this book, but after settling into a couple of chapters it was whoosh. I think there is such a huge amount of detail to absorb that the mind just boggles. The story is exciting and at times had me on the edge of my seat. After the first hurdle was over, I have to say that it more than made up for it. This book is a WOW book. This is not a light and easy read, at times it did get dark and gritty.

From start to finish I was rooting for Allie, wow she had some seriously gritty times to deal with. Allie is such a fiercely strong person; she is a fantastic and complex character. I really connected with her.

The details in the story made it so real and my imagination could certainly put me there. Such rich detail! Powerful and compelling, I really struggled to put this book down. Again as I've said before once I got past the first hurdle there was no stopping me.
