The first novel for adults by hugely acclaimed YA writer Marcus Sedgwick is a gripping saga of love, revenge, and obsession—and vampires.

In 1944, just days after the liberation of Paris, Charles Jackson sees something horrific: a man in a dark tunnel, apparently drinking the blood of a murdered woman. Terrified, he does nothing, telling himself afterward that worse tragedies happen during war.

Seven years later he returns to the city—and sees the same man dining in the company of a fascinating, beautiful young woman. When they leave the restaurant, Charles decides to follow …

A Love like Blood is a dark, compelling thriller about how a man’s life can change in a moment and about where the desire for truth—and revenge—can lead.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Terrifying, thrilling, and relentless.”

    Guardian (London)

  • “YA author Sedgwick shifts triumphantly to adult fiction with this moving and multifaceted thriller…Sedgwick maintains a high level of tension up until the devastating conclusion.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Sedgwick’s prose is nothing short of gorgeous; his patient, almost procedural tracking of Charles’ decades of wandering has a nineteenth-century elegance…Here’s a novel that tastes of blood and dust, just as a fine old-fashioned horror novel should.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “In this macabre psychological thriller, Sedgwick offers atmospheric settings and a relentless, chilling plot that gives a whole new meaning to the idea of ‘blood feud.’”

    Kirkus Reviews
