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.

I was quite hesitant going into this book, because as we all know the vampire genre is somewhat tainted. I however had heard nothing but good things about it so i decided to give it a go.
I really love the world and how its kind of opposite to a normal vampire story where vampires rule rather than humans.
Its great to go through Allie's transformation with her and see how she deals with becoming a monster.
I also like how vampires are actually the way they should be (not sparkling), they cant go in sunlight and they have to feed on humans.
I found this book did take me a long time to get through. It wasn't necessarily because i didn't enjoy it i think maybe i just had a lot going on the last few weeks.

Overall its a great take on vampires and i thought it was very enjoyable.

Four stars
