You are a monster. You will always be a monster-there is no turning back from it. But what type of monster you become is entirely up to you.Well, that was one hell of an awesomesauce rollercoaster!!If you know me, you know I have a thing for Julie Kagawa. She is, without a doubt, the best author since the time of nobody. God, I’d buy her goddamned grocery list, if I could!But onto the actual review.When I first read that Allie was Japanese, I was all like “Well, if that’s the case, wtf is with the cover???” Not that I’m complaining about that beautiful cover. But, you know, I wish they’d gotten the nationality right. Because that cover model is definitely not Asian.At first, I was kinda put out with Julie writing a vampire novel. I mean, when you go shopping for new books (Guilty pleasures, hehehe), there is always that vampire novel on the shelf, just staring at you and daring you to pick it up and read it. But since I ignore the books desperate pleas, I never pick it up, because to be honest, I’m quite over the vampire phase thing-y. Especially since Twilight, with the I’m-practically-a-fucking-disco-ball mehness. So yeah. I was hesitant to pick this up, but since it came for free in my friends magazine, and she couldn’t be bothered reading it (can you IMAGINE?!) so she gave it too me, knowing that Julie Kagawa is my favourite author and all. But I’m glad I did. Pick it up, I mean.Allison Sekemoto lives in a dystopian world full of hunger, rabids and …. well vampires! There is also the red lung disease, which threatens both humans and vampires alike. So Allison lives with a bunch of other dudes in the outskirts of a big vampire city, trying to find food by day and hiding at night. So when Allie finds a whole basement filled with canned goodness, she thinks it’s a dream from heaven. That is, until she’s attacked by rabids and saved by Kanin, a vampire and also a relative of the man who created the red lung disease. He gives our lovely heroine two choices that day: either 1. She dies or 2. She’ll be turned into a vampire and what she despises the most. And because Allison doesn’t want to ‘die’ die . . . you can guess what happens.And since these vampires are pretty gory and baddass, I like them too.These vampires are REAL!Can't be bothered writing rest of review. It's like 1am, dammit!!
