Blood Will Out

We rated this book:


When I first read the synopsis for Blood Will Out, I thought that it would be about witches or something—something dangerous, magical even. What I got was a highly inefficient plot, horror overkill, and things that would never, just never, happen in real life.

Let’s start with the storyline: 18-year-old Ari Sullivan wakes up at the bottom of a cistern with a terrible head wound. She remembers trying to hunt down a serial killer, black gloves, dead eyes staring at her from their mounts on the wall, and more gory, dead-skinned-and-gutted animals. Ari then escapes, finds her crush dead in a house, and drives back home in a car with a man, whose head is, conveniently, shot off. Upon her arrival, the police don’t believe her story, and she discovers that her best friend, Lynn, is missing! Now Ari must embark on a journey ‘round town to figure out who the serial killer is and how to get her friend back.

In the end, I was left totally unsatisfied with the identity of the antagonist. Also, this book should not be classified as a thriller, because it is exactly the opposite. Combined with a confusing timeline, poor writing structure, random metaphors, and dialogue, Blood Will Out is definitely not a book I’ll be reading again. But, if you do enjoy reading about animal abuse and slaughter, this might just be the book for you.
