Overview
"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.

Set in a near future where despotic vampires rule crumbling cities after a devastating plague has swept the country, Kagawa's Blood of Eden series kicks off with a bang. Seventeen-year-old unregistered human Allie Sekemoto would rather hover on the edge of starvation than submit to the branding, tracking, and monthly blood draws required to receive food rations from the undead overlords. She hates the vampires, but her survival instinct is stronger: when she is attacked and fatally injured, she accepts being Turned by an outlaw vampire to save herself. Forced to flee the city, Allie plays human and joins a clan that wanders the wilderness searching for a fabled safe haven called Eden. Torn between her maddening need for blood and the remnants of her humanity, Allie is a terrific heroine—tough, pragmatic, yet sympathetic—and readers will be hungry to see where her story goes. Kagawa wraps excellent writing and skillful plotting around a well-developed concept and engaging characters, resulting in a fresh and imaginative thrill-ride that deserves a wide audience. Ages 14–up. Agent: Laurie McLean, Larsen-Pomada Literary Agency. (May)
