Years ago, a group known as the Terrans left Earth in search of a life free of persecution. Now they live alongside the Tlic, an alien race who face extinction; their only chance of survival is to plant their larvae inside the bodies of the humans.

When Gan, a young, boy, is chosen as a carrier of Tlic eggs, he faces an impossible dilemma: can he really help the species he has grown up with, even if it means sacrificing his own life?

What readers are saying about BLOODCHILD:

'The best short story I've ever read. Utterly compelling, disturbing, intimate'

'Absolutely amazing. A must-read for Sci-Fi lovers'

'Wonderfully written, masterfully built and oh so thought-provoking, Bloodchild is everything you could wish for in a work of science fiction'
