~*~ Blog Tour ~*~ Bound By Blood (A Night Shift Novella) By Margo Bond Collins

Bound by Blood Blog Tour Banner 2

Sometimes the monsters in the dark are real…

As a child, Lili Banta ignored her grandmother’s cryptic warnings to avoid children outside their Filipino community in Houston. When many of those other children fell ill, Lili ignored the whispers in her community that a vampiric aswang walked among them.

Years later, Lili returns to Houston to work for the Center for Disease Control—but she is plagued by dark, bloody dreams that consume her nights and haunt her days. When a strange illness attacks the city’s children, Lili is called in to find its source, and maybe even a cure.

But in order to save the city, she must first acknowledge the sinister truth: A monster stalks the night—closer than she ever expected….

Excerpt

Sitting straight up in bed, I gasped and threw myself back against the headboard, the thud dying away along with the remaining shreds of my dream.

But the word still ricocheted through my mind.

Aswang.

Until yesterday, I hadn’t thought of the term in years—not since I’d left Houston for med school in Maine, determined to get as far away from home as I could.

But this resurgence of the same, odd illness that had swept my city years before was apparently also dredging up the old stories from deep in my subconscious: the aswang, a vampiric woman who lived a quiet life by day and fed on children in the night, flying back home on bat-wings just before dawn.

My unconscious mind had clearly also expanded on the idea, casting me in the role of aswang and adding schizoid conversations with a chorus of internal voices.

Great. I’m insane in my dreams.

And I’m a monster.

Shuddering, I wiped my hand across my gritty, raw eyelids.

My Review:

Firstly I want to thank the author for kindly providing me with a copy to read and review.

This was something a little different for me…I’m not sure if it was because it was a novella…I don’t know but I couldn’t connect with it fully…..BUT I did finish it 😀

This is my first book by this author…

When 2 young kids come in with a virus/parasite infection, Lili knows she has seen this before. She remembers it from her childhood, something her Grandmother told her: The Aswang, a vampiric type of creature from another realm.

Fighting against the clock to find the source of the infection, a possible Cure, can Lili remember the ancient myth her Grandmother used to say, in order to say the lives of the young children…
