Goodreads Synopsis:
The rule is simple: don't bleed.
For as long as Molly Southbourne can remember, she's been watching herself die. Whenever she bleeds, another molly is born, identical to her in every way and intent on her destruction.
Molly knows every way to kill herself, but she also knows that as long as she survives she'll be hunted. No matter how well she follows the rules, eventually the mollys will find her. Can Molly find a way to stop the tide of blood, or will she meet her end at the hand of a girl who looks just like her?
My Thoughts:
This small book packs a hell of a punch! WOW! The timing of reading this was perfect for the Halloween season. The reader will take a ride that's brutal, bizarre, and terrifying. The genre is a unique combination of  horror and science fiction that I found thrilling. The author pulls the reader in from the very first page and doesn't let go, I actually forgot about the character that was introduced in the first few pages until the author brings the story around full circle. All the pieces of this strange puzzle fit together beautifully. Just a warning to the reader- this tale is gruesome, bloody, and not for the faint of heart.
I really wish that the book would have been a bit longer, Molly's story is so interesting, I wanted more.
I would absolutely read another book by Tade Thompson.


  1. Loving the idea of a character who once she bleeds, another one of her is born, identical to her in every way and intent on her destruction and yet your review makes me think I'd be too frightened. Yes I know, a big scaredy-cat, I used to read novels like this all the time as a teenager but not anymore.

    1. I think you should give it a shot. It's such an interesting book, I literally have nothing to compare it to. LOL

  2. YAY! I got this book in the Page Habit box last month. I can't wait to give it a read!

    1. Awesome! I would love to hear your thoughts when you're done.

  3. Hi Tammy. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have been reading some of ypur posts. You have a very impressive site.

    This book sounds interesting. The plot does sound really unusual. It sounds as if the author really put imagination into this.

  4. It was truly a fascinating novella. It was such an interesting mix of horror, sci-fiction, with a little bit of fantasy thrown in for measure.Loved it!
