The Immortal Rules

The Immortal Rules - Julie Kagawa I loved this book.
I recently read the Iron Fey series and decided to give this book a try when it came out but I am always a little wary of new vampire books because there seems to be a craze of ... not so great ones since Twilight came out. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this book was quite serious and actually a bit darker than I expected. I have been on a bit of a dystopia kick lately and was pleasantly surprised by this.
One thing that I really liked about this book was the romance. It was there, of course (how can you have a realistic story without some romantic aspect), but it didn't overwhelm the plot, as some books do. The characters were not overly dramatic, or obsessive, it was realistic and believable, and I could really related (as much as one can to a vampiric futuristic dystopian society) to the characters feelings.
This book honestly reminded me of a darker 'The Host' by Stephanie Meyer.
