Item of the Day: Precious Blood by Tonya Hurley
Three teenage girls living three extremely different lives come together in a hospital emergency room during a time in which they all hit rock bottom. Tonya Hurley, the New York Times best-selling author of the ghostgirl series, is at it again with a brand new YA trilogy. The first book, Precious Blood (previously released as The Blessed), is inspired by the stories of three Catholic martyrs: Lucy, Agnes, and Cecelia. The stories of the girls draw on the earliest martyrdom legends of St. Lucy, St. Cecelia and St. Agnes. Lucy, Agnes, and Cecilia are forced to figure out who is good and who is evil in the battle for not only love, but for their own souls.
There’s also a mysterious dreamboat named Sebastian, who meets all three girls while they’re in the hospital and leaves each of them with a token. Get ready for some glorious angst because all three girls are determined to get to know this mystery man better and understand why he has suddenly appeared in their lives.
This book is fantastic and there’s more to come for this series, so check it out! Available here.
