Description
Acclaimed for her novels ranging from supernatural thrillers to historical fiction, award-winning author Tananarive Due imagines the story of an ancient group of immortals���a hidden African clan that has survived for more than a thousand years���facing one of the most challenging issues of our time: a devastating pandemic. 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, hundred-year-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.

        Starred review from April 28, 2008
        This profoundly moving third Blood book (after 2001's The Living Blood
        ), set in 2015, finds that beneath the seemingly endless conflict in the Middle East is another, secret war waged over the drug Glow, made from magical blood that can heal any illness and even bestow eternal life. Psychic teen Fana Wolde, the daughter of 500-year-old assassin Dawit Wolde, was born with this “living blood” running through her veins. The Life Brothers, Ethiopian immortals who believe the living blood first came from Christ, think Fana is a deity. When she escapes their American compound, wanting to control her destiny and dispense her healing blood via a complex underground railroad, the Life Brothers and her parents race to protect her from the Italian immortals of the Sanctus Cruor, false priests who want Fana to fulfill a terrible prophecy. Due brings Fana's complex and passionate story to life with her trademark flair.
