To survive in a ruined world, she must embrace the darkness…

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.

Enter Julie Kagawa's dark and twisted world as an unforgettable journey begins.

So Allie is an orphaned teenager in a dystopian fantasy where people are enslaved by vampire  masters.  Then she gets turned into a vampire and struggles with the morality of being a monster.

So at first I was like.

But then she was like.

a comparable representation on the scale of awesomeness – not a literal depiction.

And then I was like.

Right away from the beginning of the novel Allie was pretty ass kicking.

And then Kanin the vampire showed up and I was like.

Yeah, sure. Whatevs.

But then he was like.

And then I was like.

So then Allie goes trekking through the woods and I’m like.

And then she meets up Zeke and I was like.

Then Zeke is like ewwww Vampires suck and I was like.

Then stuff happened and I was like.

So then I was worried about the writing since I’d been on the fence about The Iron Fey.  But then Kagawa did a lot of:

And I was like.

And then Stephanie said the plot was slow, and I was like.

And then I got to the end and Allie was like.

So I was like.

 The end.

    oh no. now i don’t know what to do. I’m so tired of vampires but now I’m like (insert a picture for me, will you?). LOL

    I recently found your blog… and I have to say, I love the way you review books! Awesome, hehe 🙂

    I’ll definitely be trying this one out 🙂

    It’s probably a good thing this is the first review I’m reading here. It’s awesome. :’D And I’m definitely a lot more interested in the book now … my money won’t be happy. Not that this matters, anyway.

    LOL this is an epic review for sure. I got this one off NetGalley and have been unsure if I should read it. There are so many rave reviews about it and normally I find myself let down in that situation. But after this I will definitely be giving it a go. Thanks for sharing!

    My experience is that GIFs make everything better. Haven’t laughed outloud in a while. Nice to know my laugh is as loud and obnoxious as ever.

    Well the review was hilarious. Sadly all the reviews I have read on this book are missing one crucial thing and that is, the sources. Many people might not be aware of it but this book is, even though fantastically written, a rip-off. The vampires in “The Blood of Eden” are very similar to the vampires in “True Blood”. The book is set in a very similar world as in “I am Legend”. Jeb is very similar to Will Smith in the movie. Especially the end of the book is very, very similar, as it is a place walled in and secured by humans and safe from the “rabids”.
    Do not think I did not enjoy the book but I just wanted to point this out to the people that the author does not deserve all of the credit.

    Just came through to say that although I read this series a while ago, it’s def one of my all-time fav vamp series – the BEST IMO. I can’t explain it. Just one of those reads that took my body and soul. Few of those do it for me.
