Don’t lose your head
Release Date: OUT NOW! 352 pages | Paperback/ ebook Author: Simon Cheshire Publisher: Stripes Publishing
Young Adult can be a broad term, covering everything from slightly edgy children’s novels to older books barely distinguishable from adult fiction. This latest entry in the Red Eye series of YA horror definitely leans to the more mature end, with some gory body horror and a bleak, uncompromising climax.
Sam Hunter is a teenage boy in a poor family made good, moving from run- down estates to the exclusive Priory Mews. But a posh address isn’t everything it’s made out to be, and his new neighbours are definitely up to something sinister. It’s just a shame investigating them will turn out to be a terrible mistake…
Despite minor niggles and some unsubtle social commentary, this is a compelling story that isn’t afraid to ratchet up the suspense and rip up the bodies. Rhian Drinkwater Cheshire says that while writing Flesh
And Blood, at times he felt such selfdisgust that he had to leave his desk.
