LoveReading View on The Blood Miracles

Another outstanding, compelling read from Lisa McInerney, winner of the 2016 Desmond Elliott Prize and winner of the Baileys Women’s Prize for Fiction 2016. Having devoured and raved about The Glorious Heresies (one of our Books of the Year 2016), my expectations were sky high, yet I was an incy wincy bit worried, could she follow in her own fabulous footsteps? Well let me reassure you, she has, and ‘The Blood Miracles’ stands defiant. If you haven’t yet had the pleasure, do start at the beginning with The Glorious Heresies, as this continues on from there, Ryan is now 21, he’s coming up in the world, or is it down, if you’re in the murky world of selling drugs? Lisa McInerney can really, really write, she can connect horror and beauty, violence and sweetness, she allows your mind to enter a world that feels scarily real, within touching distance. The sense of place within this series ensures ‘The Blood Miracles’ is convincing, captivating and very, very readable. Long may Lisa McInerney reign. ~ Liz Robinson

The Blood Miracles Synopsis

The second novel from the author of the Baileys Prize-winning The Glorious Heresies Like all twenty-year-olds, Ryan Cusack is trying to get his head around who he is. This is not a good time for his boss to exploit his dual heritage by opening a new black market route from Italy to Ireland. It is certainly not a good time for his adored girlfriend to decide he's irreparably corrupted. And he really wishes he hadn't accidentally caught the eye of an ornery grandmother who fancies herself his saviour. There may be a way clear of the chaos in the business proposals of music promoter Colm and in the attention of the charming, impulsive Natalie. But now that his boss's ambitions have rattled the city, Ryan is about to find out what he's made of, and it might be that chaos is in his blood.

The Blood Miracles Press Reviews

'Fast paced, compelling, and thrilling, Lisa McInerney writes the type of fiction that is both beautifully crafted and immensely enjoyable. She is one of the most exciting young authors to come out of Ireland in the last decade' Louise O'Neill

'The Blood Miracles has all the brio, street smarts and vicious linguistic verve of The Glorious Heresies, but with this follow up Lisa McInerney also reminds us just how brilliantly accomplished and ruthlessly focused a storyteller she is' Colin Barrett

'The second novel from the author of the hugely successful debut The Glorious Heresies ... McInerney's many fans will be pleased to hear her follow up revolves around the further misadventures of Ryan in Cork city' Bookseller
