(reread, urban fantasy thriller)

The Living Blood is the sequel to My Soul To Keep, which I listed above, so this will have significant spoilers for the first book.

Dr. Lucas Shepard is world-famous in the field of alternative medicine, but when he has about lost hope for his terminally ill son, an article about a "miracle cure" in southern Africa sends him in search of the clinic, led by Jessica Wolde. But others are searching for the Living Blood too, and they don't intend to ask nicely.

Jessica's four year old daughter Fana, who underwent the Ritual of Life while in her mother's womb, has powers that no one understands and not even Fana can control. When Jessica can no longer shelter Fana from the evils of the outside world, Fana's powers threaten to destroy everything, even the mystical sect linked by their immortality.

This book is really different from the first one in the series, but like the first one is a real page-turner.
