Harlequin Halloween Tour: Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa

Harlequin Halloween TourThis year we are lucky enough to celebrate Halloween with a bunch of amazing Harlequin authors! Specifically, Author Julie Kagawa, and her character Zeke are stopping by the blog! This sweet, tough, and disillusioned boy came over to tell us what's the 'Scariest part of being in love'.



"The scariest part of being in love? You mean...other then the fact that the girl I'm in love with happens to be a vampire?" *Laughs* "Well, to be honest, I guess what scares me the most is Allie's belief that she's a monster. Not that I believe she is; I've watched her fight. I've seen her struggle so hard not to give in to her instincts. And she does have that darkness inside her, that drive to kill and feed and destroy like all the other vampires; I'm not so blind to think it isn't there. But I've accepted that part of her, and I know she will continue to fight it with everything she has. It doesn't scare me. She doesn't scare me.

"No, what scares me is that Allie sometimes believes she's nothing but a vicious, soulless killer. And, because she doesn't want to hurt anyone, she'll pull back, shut everyone out. The thing that frightens me most is the thought that, one day, Allie will decide she can't put me in danger anymore, and she'll leave. Walk out of my life forever. But it's all right. Because if that happens, I'll just go after her again. She can push me away all she likes. I won't give up until I convince her that she's not a monster, and that I don't care if she's a vampire and has to feed on humans and only comes out at night. None of that matters to me. When I look at Allison, I don't see a monster, or even another vampire. I fell in love with the girl."


Zeke is one of the main characters in the Blood of Eden series and here's more about the first book, The Immortal Rules:

The Immortal RulesA Legend begins.

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.

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

About Julie Kagawa:

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.

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 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.

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 hyperactive Papillon puppy.
