LoveReading View on Bloodchild

If you’re on the hunt for a book that will really grab you, put shivers down your spine and ensure that at the end of every chapter you gasp for breath then Bowler’s Bloodchild is the novel for you. Incredibly atmospheric of time and place with characters that draw you in, Bowler is the true master of the teenage psychological thriller and a wonderfully individual voice to boot.

Bloodchild Synopsis

Will lies in a deserted lane. All he knows is that he's had an accident and that his life is slipping away. Against all the odds he survives - but with an almost total loss of memory.

He does not even know himself. And that is not all. At night he is tormented by visions, in the daytime by hostile strangers.

Why does he have so many enemies? And who is the strange child who seems to have a story to tell him? Something has happened in this town, something terrifying. Will can sense it but he can't work out what it was. Perhaps the old Will knew.

But that was before the accident. The new Will must search for the answers again - and this is a dangerous task. For the town has a secret and there are those who will do everything in their power to preserve it.

Even kill.
