10 September 2014 Sarah 1

Amish. Vampires.  Need I say more?  Didn’t think so.  A standalone novella set in a dystopian world devastated by plague, After the Blood by Marjorie M. Liu is rife with imagery and mystery.  The blurb certainly got my attention, and the story of plague and semi-sentient forest more than lived […]
