This book is literally about the earth bleeding. The main character Lea is in a cemetery when all of a sudden she notices that the earth is bleeding. The blood begins to make its way all around the world. It is everywhere. The blood begins to have hair and bones in it. Ewww...how disturbing. This book is definitely for those who cannot handle grossness and blood. I didn't really like this book because the plot wasn't as exciting as I thought it would be. The plot mainly focuses on Lea and her girlfriend, Aracely and them trying to get through this bloody apocalypse. I like the close relationship between Lea and Arcely and how much they truly care for each other and depend on one another. I also like how the author made the relationship LGBTQ because I feel like not many books are focused on that these days. However, I did not like how there was partying involved when the world was literally coming to an end and how people were daring each other to drink blood, it just didn't make sense to me. I thought this book would be much more original since the idea seemed very unique and new but the plot turned out to be very dull. I also disliked how at the end of the book Lea just seems like she doesn't care much about her family and just cares more about her girlfriend. At the end of the book, Lea does something bad (I don’t want to spoil the book) and the author doesn’t do a good job with developing Lea’s emotions. She just makes Lea fully engrossed in her girlfriend. I also didn't like how there were no real answers to why this blood was coming out of the earth. There are some parts in the book where there are clues that maybe God may have created this disaster to punish the people but this idea is never fully developed. The ending of this book is very plain and it seems incomplete. I do not like that this book has many unfinished ideas because it just leaves the readers confused and unsatisfied. Finally, there are many times where Lea feels sort of attracted to the blood and she feels like the blood gives her a sense of calmness but this idea also seems to have no further purpose in the novel which is disappointing. Overall, I didn't love this book because it seemed to be missing a lot of parts to it that could have made it better but I didn't hate it either. I really liked the unique idea of this blood apocalypse and I liked the strong relationship between Lea and Arceley but the plot seemed vague to me and incomplete.

The earth is bleeding, yes bleeding. Blood is coming out of the ground, and it has scientist scrambling to find answers to why the earth has decided to unleash human blood upon itself. In the beginning it was just inches but within days the amount grows and it becomes disgusting as it begins to cause problems around the world. Just like any other major catastrophe, people panic and everyone has their theories. The religious sector start to scream their predictions, the president tries to calm his people and everyone is told that it is nothing major but when things don’t return to normal within days, things start to get out of hand very quickly. The excitement of this drama and the creep factor of the blood made a good match for this book and I didn’t put this novel down all afternoon. There was mixed feeling among the citizens, some believed that life would return to normal and then there were those who at the first sign of danger went into survival mode and started doing whatever they could think of; these individuals were serious about making it out alive. It’s bad enough that there was blood covering everything but soon there is human hair and bones mixed in the blood. Imagine walking around outside in that scenario, the mess and the stench that would follow you. Dwell on that thought for a while and you can imagine what these people are waking up to every morning and they were told to just deal with it? The characters in this novel are not only dealing these issues but also with family and relationship problems. Lea is worried that she will lose her partner Aracely, as they don’t spend enough time together. Aracely hasn’t yet told anyone that she is gay and she hides their relationship which worries Lea. Lea is told by her father when things get progressively worse to travel to his workplace where she will be safe. Trying to convince her mother to live their house, she notices that her mother is acting strangely; they don’t have much time to waste. What transpires next I was not ready for but it was exciting and great drama. I was not happy with the ending and that is why I reduced my star rating from a five star listing. The ending was too hooky for me, it was if a curtain was pulled back and we started another scene, like ta-da. I can’t say more as I don’t want to ruin the book or someone else might like the ending, I just didn’t care for it and I really loved the rest of the book. This book immediately takes off and it leads you on an interesting adventure with great twists and turns, it was a brilliant piece of work. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and Egmont USA in exchange for an honest review.
