For Sophia Taylor, life has gotten surreal…
Sophia, Soho barmaid, woke up on her sofa with her love interest Henry Blaire by her side. He was smoking all of her cigarettes and she was BLEEDING from her head.
…Which was weird because Henry hated cheap cigarettes.
1) Sophia Taylor was only bleeding from the head because SOMEONE has pushed her down the stairs
2) That “someone” being Henry Blaire, the person smoking all of her death sticks and coincidently the man that Sophia had hired to kill the two murderers of her sister Melanie Taylor.
3) Henry was smoking all of her cigarettes BECAUSE she was bleeding.
4) The bleeding wouldn’t have been so bad if Henry wasn’t an incubus with an addiction to life-force and killing the scum of the earth to get it.
No one must ever know of the existence of daemons, it is their law. Sophia must run for her life. Excerpt from the back of the book.
Wow this is one of the darkest, sexiest, romantic novels ever. It is definitely not suitable for younger readers. The Bleeders deals with death and addictions but is dealt in a practical matter than helps the story move forward. It wasn’t just added just because; there was a perfectly good reason for it. I loved Sophia’s character. She was so complex and even if she is addicted to Henry, I didn’t find her annoying like I do with some characters. I like how the story went from present day Sophia then to Sophia telling us about her past it was a nice change of pace through the novel. The way Michaela ended the story made me go “What!! I NEED more” I can’t wait to see what is in store for The Human Herders.
If you are a fan of darker novels you will for sure enjoy The Bleeders.
