Cover Reveal: The Immortal Rules and The Eternity Cure

Maybe you read the title and like, "what? The Immortal Rules HAS a cover!"

Well, hear me out:


By now, your copies of all the books in The Twilight Saga are probably worn out. Fortunately, your next favorite vampire series is already in the works. In the first novel in author Julie Kagawa‘s Blood of Eden sequence, The Immortal Rules (which is already on shelves, FYI!), readers are transported into a future world — because, as we all know, dystopian societies are so on trend right now – where vamps reign and humans are blood cattle.
Just in case you’re not too familiar, one night, the book’s heroine, Allison Sekemoto, is attacked by vampires and left with the ultimate decision: die or become her biggest fear. She chooses the latter, but attempts to go without human blood and pass as a mortal. Oh, and there’s obviously a guy involved. Zeke. Sigh.
In celebration of the second installment to the franchise, scheduled for May 2013 release, we’re giving you the exclusive unveil of a brand-new Immortal Rules cover (first edition to the left), as well as the premiere of sequel The Eternity Cure‘s cover.
Julie Kagawa says of the addition, “In The Eternity Cure, new vampire Allison Sekemoto has come to terms with what she is and what she must do to survive: prey on humans. She knows she is a vampire, but she is determined not to become a monster. But then she meets someone who challenges that belief, telling her all vampires are killers, encouraging her to embrace her savage instincts. And as she gets closer to rescuing Kanin, the lines between human and monster blur even further, and Allison must decide to either cling to her rapidly fading humanity, or succumb to the darkness within.”
P.S. The Blood of Eden series is currently being optioned for a movie by Palomar Pictures, so hop on the bandwagon now!


Now you got the idea. Cuz there will be a movie of The Immortal Rules. And man, I LOVE the series.

So here's the new The Immortal Rules cover:

And that's where I start getting mad.

Because look at the original cover:

Come on, don't you think the original one is way better? I know there will be a movie, but please don't ruin the cover of this book, 'kay?

And here's The Eternity Cure:

Honestly, I'm not very happy with this cover either. I thought the cover would be somehow even better than the original cover of The Immortal Rules.

Hey, if you get a closer look of the cover you will see this:

It includes The Traitor Son's excerpt.

The Traitor Son.



got it?!!!

See the summary of The Immortal Rules and The Eternity Cure here:

The Immortal Rules:

"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.

The Eternity Cure:

Allison Sekemoto has vowed to rescue her creator, Kanin, who is being held hostage and tortured by the psychotic vampire Sarren. The call of blood leads her back to the beginning—New Covington and the Fringe, and a vampire prince who wants her dead yet may become her wary ally.

Even as Allie faces shocking revelations and heartbreak like she’s never known, a new strain of the Red Lung virus that decimated humanity is rising to threaten human and vampire alike.


The new version of The Immortal Rules will be released on March 26th, 2013 while The Eternity Cure will be released on April 23rd, 2013.

  1. I actually don't like the original cover but at least it had character. The new covers are pretty boring, I actually thought The Eternity Cure's cover was a placeholder until the actual cover was revealed like they did for The Immortal Rules.

    If you are going to redesign a cover it's suppose to BETTER not this. I would have preferred to have an Asian/South Pacific model on the cover or have a shot of Allison wielding her katana like the bad ass she is.

    I don't think the book being optioned has anything to do with cover redesign. A book being optioned is no guarantee that it will become a movie and if a cover is being redesigned because it's being made into a movie, it's usually a movie tie-in cover.
