The vampires that rule the world of Julie Kagawa’s The Immortal Rules do not sparkle. They aren’t romantics. They don’t go to high school. They are terrifying beings that keep humans as blood cattle. But in this post-apocalyptic society, vampires aren’t the only thing that heroine Allie Sekemoto needs to fear. Her bleak reality is threatened bloodthirsty rabids, vengeful humans, and a seemingly hopeless future.
When Allie has to choose between death and becoming a vampire, she chooses immortality. But she’s not prepared for the sacrifices she’ll have to make.
In 1,200 words or fewer, write a story about a vampire.
