BAD BLOOD. BAD DRUGS. BAD BUGS. WELCOME TO THE FINGER. A Splatterfest with a Social Conscience from radical new voice in teen fiction, Steve Tasane.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Blood Donors does something almost impossible - it combines an utterly convincing setting and all-too-human characters with a story of nightmarish intensity. The language hums with energy and the pace is relentless. -- Anthony McGowan
A confident debut. The story succeeds in making the skin crawl and the flesh creep whilst also having more serious undertones around the nature of social and class prejudice. -- Jake Hope * Books For Keeps *
A fast paces excitement-packed book . . . reminding me somewhat of John Wyndham's 1951 classic The Day of the Triffids, this is a thoroughly enjoyable read * The School Librarian *
