The first novel for adults by hugely acclaimed YA writer Marcus Sedgwick is a gripping saga of love, revenge, and obsession - and vampires.
In 1944, just days after the liberation of Paris, Charles Jackson sees something horrific: a man in a dark tunnel, apparently drinking the blood of a murdered woman. Terrified, he does nothing, telling himself afterward that worse tragedies happen during war.
Seven years later he returns to the city - and sees the same man dining in the company of a fascinating, beautiful young woman. When they leave the restaurant, Charles decides to follow....
A Love like Blood is a dark, compelling thriller about how a man's life can change in a moment and about where the desire for truth - and revenge - can lead.
Good book to put you to sleep. Even the narrator read ever so slowly, and speeding up the narration did not help. I could not get into the story...yawn... perception is individual though, make up your own mind, reviews are just opinions, not truths. 🙋
