Review copy

Draw Blood is the second book in the Blood Trilogy. Having read and enjoyed book 1, Blood Red, about a month ago, I was looking forward to seeing where author Jason Bovberg would take his characters as they do their best to survive an apocalyptic event.

What they are up against is something completely unique in the horror genre. So far we've learned that the survivors all have type O-Negative blood and that their blood can be used to keep the rest of the population (who seem to be controlled by some other intelligence) at bey and might actually be able to cure them in some instances.

Where book 1 was told from the point of view of a remarkably resourceful teenager, Rachel, book 2 is told by Rachel's father, Michael.

The story construct is still strong as the author doesn't miss a beat, even with the change in perspective. There is an attention to detail that makes this book and book 1 very easy to read. The scenes dealing with what the rest of the world has become are effective, but the real story lies in the sociological and psychological experiment that is the way the survivors interact and deal with their situation.

Draw Blood is another terrific read in the Blood Trilogy and I'm looking forward to seeing how it all ends in book 3.

Draw Blood is available now in both paperback and as an e-book from the usual online retailers. I definitely suggest reading book 1, Blood Red, first.

Highly recommended. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0966262921, Paperback)

Jonathan Maberry, New York Times bestselling author of Rot & Ruin, says, "Draw Blood is a real nail-biter of a zombie novel that will delight die-hard fans and draw legions of new ones to the genre. Thumbs up!" Alden Bell, author of modern zombie classic The Reapers Are the Angels, says, "In Draw Blood, the second book of the Blood trilogy, Bovberg keeps the action taut and breathless, driving the story forward with a combination of excruciating dread and linguistic majesty. He reminds us that we're in the middle of a zombie epic for the new century." And Robert Devereaux, author of splatter masterpiece Deadweight, says, "In Draw Blood, Jason Bovberg attains a new level of mastery, guiding us with assurance and control into the finely etched, moment-by-moment travails of his characters without once relaxing the tension. Draw Blood deserves the widest readership possible. This one's a keeper!"

In this sequel to the critically acclaimed Blood Red, Rachel's father Michael has regained consciousness in a blood-red world. Rachel has gone through hell to save him from a gruesome apocalyptic event that still has its gory clutches on Fort Collins, Colorado. But Michael is a troubled man. A man of guilt and remorse. His daughter has no idea about the demons that haunt him. And the more he learns about his new, perilous existence, the more powerfully those inner demons are at odds with the very real ones surrounding him.

Michael will soon find himself racing against time--as well as hordes of resurrected corpses showing newly aggressive behavior--to protect what matters most in his life. It's time to take a stand, for himself, for Rachel, and for the small band of survivors facing a ghastly, existential threat.
