Pub Week REVIEW: Wildblood

“You are no lesser person because of what you survived. Your faults, vices, trauma, pain… those make you as much wholly you as all the joy and talent and love and vibrancy in you.”


Deep in the jungles of Jamaica lie all sorts of strange magical monsters. Tourists who wish to journey on the island hire a tour company where the guides are children with a unique blood based magic. When one large tour group comes to the island, Victoria sees this as her chance to get promoted. The hurdles she will go through along the way will test her like never before.

Whew, I’m not sure this one is really YA. The level of violence and abuse is serious. It borders at times on torture porn. Don’t get me wrong, it was unique and empowering but I’m not sure this one will be for everyone. Victoria and her friends have been through some horrible things and are desperately looking for a way out. For some of them, the only way out is death. There is a high body count in this one and some of them will break your heart!

I am the Vice President of Clinical Affairs for a medical device company where my job is to promote the utility of the device to doctors. I have science and business degrees and have editorial experience in medical communications. In college, I served as an Editorial Assistant for a healthcare communications company and have served on two editorial boards for peer-reviewed journals. In my free time, I always have a book in my hand... or two or three! On average, I read 20 books a month. I have looked to combine two of my skill sets to review on Goodreads and promote books on Instagram that I love to other readers. I'm open to partnering with publishers as an influencer for book tours, giveaways etc.
