I had the pleasure of reading the first edition of this book back in 2013. I’ve thought about the story ever since because it just grabbed onto my soul and refused to let go. So imagine my surprise when I found out that a new edition of the book was being released by Limitless Publishing. I was so excited to read the new version, see what was different (if anything), and get to connect with the characters again.
I must admit, I did have to go back and read parts of the original story because I couldn’t quite remember every little detail from the first time I read it. I did notice that the new edition flowed much better! I fell right back into the story and clung to every word as I experienced the emotional journey of each character involved.
Ms. Besser isn’t afraid to tackle some subjects that other authors shy away from. The brutal truth is that things like organ harvesting does happen on a regular basis even if we’d like to pretend that it doesn’t. But what drives the people behind the act to take part in it? Is it for a worthy cause or to satisfy a sadistic pleasure? Ms. Besser has developed her characters in such a way that the reader may actually feel for them and their reasons for being okay with taking organs from another human. I don’t think it's possible for anyone to read to Nurse Blood and not experience a variety of emotions that makes them question what they would do if they were in Sonya’s shoes.
I said it in my last review and I’ll say it again: In Nurse Blood, morals will be questioned, relationships will be broken, and sanity will be tested. It was a 5 star read in 2013 and it is absolutely a 5 star read now. I can’t wait for book two to come out because I really need to know what happens next or this book will haunt me forever.
