|Plot Summary of The Living Blood|
|"Due's sequel to her best-selling "My Soul to Keep" continues the story of Jessica Wolde, her daughter "Fana", and the mysterious powers given them by Jessica's estranged (and centuries-old) husband, David. With the addition of a subplot involving another doctor in search of "the living blood," as well as others in pursuit of Wolde and her clan, the story lags at times but is still a fairly good summer read."
Reginald D. Garrard, Resident Scholar
