First Glen Duncan gave us his monstrously thrilling, genre-reinventing The Last Werewolf: the tale of Jake, a werewolf with a profoundly human heart, considering bringing to an end the timeless legend of his kind . . . ThenTalulla Rising: Jake’s werewolf lover, mother to newborn twins, on the run from those who want her destroyed . . . And nowBy Blood We Live: a stunningly erotic love story that gives us the final battle for survival between werewolves and vampires, and one last searing—and brilliantly ironic—look at what it means to be, or not to be, human.

The story opens: Talulla has settled into an uneasy equilibrium. With her twins safely at her side, and the devotion of her lover, Walker, she has what appears to be a normal family life—except for their monthly transformation into werewolves hungry for human flesh. But even this hard-won, tenuous peace is undermined for Talulla by nagging thoughts of Remshi, the twenty-thousand-year-old vampire who haunts her dreams. For his part, Remshi can’t escape the feeling that he knows Talulla from many (many, many) years before. Still, they have their distractions: Talulla is being pursued by a fanatical, Vatican-based Christian cult, and Remshi is following a trail of reckless feedings by a newly turned vampire bent on revenge. But, as the novel unfolds, Talulla and Remshi are inexorably drawn to each other—and toward the moment when an ancient prophecy may finally come to pass.

Title: By Blood We Live <>Binding: Hardcover <>Author: GlenDuncan <>Publisher: AlfredA.Knopf

Review:

"When books are as good as Duncan's, we can drink them in greedily."--The New York Times Book Review

"Glen Duncan is back at the top of his game with By Blood We Live." --Washington Post

"Duncan offer[s] two rarified qualities that the Gothic genre often lacks: exquisite writing and a refined literary sensibility."--Richard Times-Dispatch

"Duncan's writing does more than transcend genre fiction: it creeps up on it in the dead of night, rips out its heart, then eats it."--The Guardian

"Duncan writes with caustic edge and pop-culturally relevant humor." --Dallas Morning News

"The horror genre at its best--wildly imaginative, written with wit and intelligence, wickedly entertaining." --The Times (UK)

"There are plenty of battles, blood, and sexy escapades; but the real treat continues to be Duncan's beautifully twisted way with language and the profound thesis he poses about humanity."--Booklist

"A page-turner with heft. . . . Storytelling to chill the blood."--Sunday Herald (Scotland)

"Horror fiction at its best."--The Oregonian

"Vigorous, funny, sexy and necessary at a time when so much genre fiction is drowning in melancholy vampires and self-serious teen dystopias."--Kirkus
