LoveReading View on Flesh and Blood

This creepy story is a great addition to the Red Eye horror series for teens. Sam moves into a new neighbourhood when his family come into some money. Everything looks lovely, but on their very first night in their new house a man is brutally murdered only yards away. There are more reports of missing people and it’s soon clear to Sam that under the shiny surface lurks something very nasty indeed. He’s determined to expose what’s going on, but things don’t go according to plan. The ending will provoke a satisfying shudder in readers!  ~ Andrea Reece

Flesh and Blood Synopsis

I must record the facts that have led me to where I am now. So that, when someone reads this, they understand. Sam Hunter's neighbours are pillars of the community, the most influential people in town. But they're liars too. The Greenhills are hiding something and Sam's determined to find out what it is. As his investigation unfolds, he realizes the lies reach further than he ever imagined - is there anyone he can trust? Uncovering the horror is one thing ...escaping is another. A chilling new story in the Red Eye series.

Flesh and Blood is one in a new horror series for teens called Red Eye giving the gruesome and ghastly a contemporary makeover. Check out the brilliantly chilling novel Frozen Charlotte by Alex Bell and Sleepless by Lou Morgan also from the Red Eye series.

  • Lauren Coffman, age 15 - 'This book was thoroughly engaging and exciting...I would absolutely recommend this book, though not if you don’t like gore and horror.'
  • Khadijah Ahmed - 'Warning: This Book Is Not For The Faint Hearted! mystery, thrills, chills and trauma, topped off with a brilliant ending that makes you want to bash your head against a wall and scream, "WHY!?" to the heavens, but in a good way.'
  • Izzy Read, age 14 - 'I have read a couple of horror books in my time and the have all recklessly gripped me, making me finish them within 48 hours; Flesh and Blood was no exception!'
  • Edel Waugh - 'Fantastic book! Part of a brilliant series by Red Eye.'
  • Amanda Gray, age 20 - 'Cheshire's talent at crafting the horrifying that was in Flesh and Blood was completely addictive. I was freaked out, silent screaming and amazed at his gruesome scenes. It was absolutely brilliant.'
  • Michelle Toy, age 34 - 'Flesh and Blood took the scares and in this case gore up another notch on the heart rate meter! If I only knew that this book would draw me in as much as it did, scare me to death reading late at night!'
