Good morning everyone,

The Phlebotomist


War brought the Harvest. Willa Mae Wallace is a reaper.

To support herself and her grandson Isaiah, Willa works for the blood contractor Patriot. Instituted to support the war effort, the mandatory draw (The Harvest) has led to a society segregated by blood type. Hoping to put an end to it all, Willa draws on her decades-old phlebotomy training to resurrect an obsolete collection technique, but instead uncovers an awful truth.

Patriot will do anything to protect its secret. On the run and with nowhere else to turn, Willa seeks an alliance with Lock, a notorious blood-hacker who cheats the Harvest to support the children orphaned by it. But they soon find themselves in the grasp of a new type of evil.

I am in awe of this book and love it, I’d love to read more about this and the lives of the different people and how this affects them in their specific classes. A sequel… I need a sequel!! There are many genres surrounding this book, horror, fantasy, science fiction and dystopian to name a few. So you can imagine when I picked this up to read I was amazed that all the above genres were definitely covered. I loved the way the different terms for blood work were described at the beginning of each chapter.

I absolutely loved Willa! She’s so bad-ass and she didn’t even know it until her grandson and the only link left to her daughter is kidnapped. She’s kind and considerate and in the beginning she didn’t know what she was witnessing or helping with. What I love even more about Willa is, she’s an older person and we don’t see that very often in any fiction novels. Lock is also a bad-ass ex-marine chick! She’s amazing and when she reveals how feels to Willa well… I did not see that coming. I feel that all the characters in this novel certainly played their part.

The twist I was not expecting (no spoilers now… you’ll have to read it), I was still thinking we were dealing with humans and they were just being greedy for more money, mind blown when I got the reveal. This is where the horror element comes in 😉 just read it… you know you want to!!

It was well written, I couldn’t put it down and for it to come in a subscription box for people to discover, new to them, authors is incredible and I’m so glad I got given this one. Remember the link is above for the subscription box.

Would I recommend this book? A massive HELL YES!! Buy it, loan it, just read it!
