Some hours ago Julie Kagawa shared some big, BIG news on her blog. The movie rights to her highly anticipated upcoming novel The Immortal Rules(published by HarlequinTeen), the first book in The Blood of Eden series, and the rights to the series as a whole has been opted for by Palomar Pictures. This is so exiting and quite seriously if I were Julie I wouldn't know which leg to stand on right now. I would probably be in my own little fantasy world, floating about on a big, pink, fluffy cloud!
That the rights have been opted for doesn't necessarily mean that there will be made any films but the odds are a helluva lot better then if the rights hadn't sold ;)
Haven't heard of The Immortal Rules yet? I'm sure you're not the only one. The book isn't due for release until April 24th. Check out the synopsis below and take a look at the links to some early reviews that I've included further down in this post. Enjoy!
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.
