received from NETGALLEY for review
book available April 24th
published by HarlequinTEEN

synopsis (goodreads)
In a future world, Vampires reign. Humans are blood cattle. And one girl will search for the key to save humanity.

Allison Sekemoto survives in the Fringe, the outermost circle of a vampire 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 is attacked—and given the ultimate choice. Die… or become one of the monsters.

Faced with her own mortality, Allie becomes what she despises most. To survive, she must learn the rules of being immortal, including the most important: go long enough without human blood, and you will go mad.

Then Allie is forced to flee into the unknown, outside her city walls. There she joins a ragged band of humans who are seeking a legend—a possible cure to the disease that killed off most of humankind and created the rabids, the mindless creatures who threaten humans and vampires alike.

But it isn't easy to pass for human. Especially not around Zeke, who might see past the monster inside her. And Allie soon must decide what—and who—is worth dying for.

I've heard so many fabulous things about Julie Kagawa that I requested this book from NetGalley.  I'm glad I did.  I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
The book focuses on a dystopian America about 60 yrs after a virus kills just about everyone.  I found the book to be somewhat slow at the beginning, but I understand Ms.Kagawa is setting the groundwork for this new series. 
Once we get through all the beginning introductions, the book flies! 
The world created is amazing. It's both frightening and exciting.  Humans live under the rule of vampires.
The main character is a young woman named Allie.  You will fall in love with her.  She is a strong willed individual.

This story is full of action, adventure and intrigue. There is a new spin on vampires.  They are the rulers and not the hunted..I liked that!
