Stop #10 – Welcome to the Wilderness

Julie Kagawa Immortal Rules blog tour - Wilderness

There was no road to follow, at least, not where I had come out. I did stumble upon a few leftovers of human civilization—old houses crumbling under carpets of weeds and moss, a few rusty car skeletons choked with vines—but the farther I got from the city, the wilder the forest became. I’d had no idea it was this big, that trees could just stretch on forever and ever. I met no one in my travels, human or vampire, though the woods were teeming with wildlife, most of which I had never seen before and knew their names only through stories. Fox and skunk, rabbit and squirrel, snakes, raccoons and endless herds of deer.

Please visit Once Upon A Twilight for the next stop on The Immortal Rules blog tour.

Here's the scoop of THE IMMORTAL RULES:

Julie Kagawa The Immortal RulesYou will kill. The only question is when.

In the dark days since the insidious Red Lung virus decimated the human population, vampires have risen to rule the crumbling cities and suburbs. Uncontested Princes hold sway over diminished ranks of humans: their "pets." In exchange for their labor, loyalty and of course, their blood, these pets are registered, given food and shelter, permitted to survive.

Unregistered humans cling to fringes, scavenging for survival. Allison Sekemoto and her fellow Unregistereds are hunted, not only by vampires, but by rabids, the unholy result of Red Lung-infected vampires feeding on unwary humans. One night, Allie is attacked by a pack of rabids, saved by an unlikely hero...and turned vampire.

Uncomfortable in her undead skin, Allie falls in with a ragtag crew of humans seeking a cure, or cures: for Rabidism and for Vampirism. She's passing for human...for now. But the hunger is growing and will not be denied. Not for friendship—not even for love.

Julie KagawaTo 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 dog trainer for several years, dodging Chihuahua bites and overly enthusiastic Labradors, until her first book sold and she stopped training to write full-time. Her third novel, The Iron Queen, became a New York Times bestseller and her debut novel, The Iron King recently won the RITA award for best young-adult fiction novel of 2010.

Julie now lives in La Grange, Kentucky, with her husband, two obnoxious cats, one Australian shepherd who is too smart for his own good and the latest addition, a hyperactive papillon.

Jenn

Born and raised in the Toronto area, Jenn moved to St. John's, Newfoundland, eight years ago for school. She's still in school (thankfully on another degree!), now trapped in her dissertation. When she's not dissertating, which happens more often than it should, Jenn spends her time reading, watching movies, playing volleyball, travelling, and enjoying the local music scene. Her latest addictions: yoga and Almond Crunch cereal.

  2. I think the question will be how many times they did, and most of the time was my mom getting me into go shopping or get the garbage out, small things nothing to big but she surely did, maybe even with money sometimes (i will get them back all the time)but give them when they wanted to have their money in the account and they wanted some extra cash.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Yep, and it involved riding a bike. I wasn't amused.

  6. Yes, my parents have tricked me. Looking back on it now, I'm glad they did. They actually saved me from learning things I should not have known at such a young age.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I know my parents tricked me into believing in Santa/the Easter Bunny/the Tooth Fairy/etc. They'd go to extremes to try to make it seem realistic. I thought they were embarrassing at the time, but it makes me smile now to think back on it :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Ummm, maybe? I'm not sure. Probably. I would imagine they used reverse psychology on me a couple times, what with me not liking to do anything authority tells me to do. Can't think of any specific instance though.

  13. I think my mom used to sneak things we wouldn't ordinarily eat into her recipes, hiding extra veggies into casseroles and things like that.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  47. I'm wondering why Julkie decided to buck the current vamp trend for YA books and go a bit darker. I think if vamps did exist they'd be more like the vamps described here then just like us with a need to drink a little blood.

  70. Thanks so much for the giveaway! I'm going to quite literally freak out if I don't get the Immortal Rules soon, but my parents don't really like buying me books, so I'm just going to camp out at my bookstore for half the day and read it if it FINALLY comes to that. But I'll probably just buy it myself. :)
