About the Book

Blood Siren (Michael Formichelli)
It is the 25th century C.E.

Cylus Keltan wants nothing more than to stay out of the poisoned bed of greed and politics, but as the last heir to a financial empire spanning hundreds of star systems no one wants to let him be alone. When a close friend throws himself from a mile-high window, Cylus is forced back into the world he swore never to return to.

With the help of the cyborg investigator, Nero Graves, he uncovers a plot to cripple the government and deploy an alien super plague with the potential to kill billions known only as "Siren."

Can they discover the link between his friend's death and Siren before it's too late?

Blood Siren Book One is the first of a series.

I had a few problems with this book. For one thing, I had to keep putting it down. I couldn’t take it everywhere and read as I went about my day, because it’s not a book I could read on the bus or the train. It’s not just the graphic sex, though it is very graphic, very copious, and very descriptive. It’s not just the coprophagia and mutual snot-eating — though that’s what kept making me literally gag. It’s also the racial epithets that are our real modern day taboos, the “culturally charged language” as one of the characters calls it. I just can’t sit there next to some elderly Jamaican lady on her way home from church and risk her reading over my shoulder something that would distress her and which she’d only be able to interpret as racist porn. And there’s something like that on almost every page.
