"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."

This isn't your typical vampire story. For one the vampires are the ones in charge and treat the humans like bloodbags. The have what is called pets which governs over the registers. Making sure they give their blood when its required. There are also the unregistered who refuse to be marked by the vampire leaders. Allison (Allie) is an unregistered who has fought and stolen for everything she has in live which isn't a lot.One night Allie's fate is forever changed when she's attacked by the rabids and is left for die. She has a choice either die or become the very thing she loathes.
Allie is one kick ass female character. She deals with her new life while trying to forget her past.
This is by far my favorite vampire novel. Which isn't very shocking for me due to the fact of how much I adore Julie's The Iron Fey series.
I am looking forward to seeing where Allie goes in the future!
5/5 stars Happy Reading, Ashley
