Blood Colony

A Novel

From the acclaimed author of The Living Blood, comes an imaginative and enthralling tale about an ancient group of African immortals facing one of the most challenging issues of our time: the AIDS/HIV pandemic. Now in paperback.

In this sequel to her Essence bestsellers, The Living Blood and My Soul to Keep, fan-favorite Tananarive Due introduces readers to a new drug: Glow. Said to heal almost any illness, Glow gets its power from the blood of immortals, and it’s up to the Blood Colony, a small but powerful group of immortals, to keep the supplies coming so that AIDS and other diseases will be wiped out. Meet Fana Wolde, seventeen years old, the only immortal born with the Living Blood. She can read minds and her injuries heal immediately. When her best friend, a mortal, is imprisoned by Fana’s family, Fana helps her escape and together they run away from Fana’s protected home in Washington State to join the Underground Railroad of Glow peddlers. But Fana has more than her parents to worry about: Glow peddlers are being murdered by a violent, hundredyear- old sect with ties to the Vatican. Now, when Fana is most vulnerable, she is being hunted to fulfill an ancient blood prophecy that could lead to countless deaths. While her people search for Fana and race to unravel the unknown sect’s mysterious origins, Fana must learn to confront the deadly forces—or she and everyone she loves will die.
