Reviews for The Phlebotomist

A clever, inventive fantasy with a horrific twist that explores whether we are more than the sum of our parts. exciting and genre-challenging debut This is a layered, post-apocalyptic book you won't escape from easily, and one which left me genuinely squirming in my seat. A compelling dystopian thriller that presents a fallen world and proceeds to dissect it with sanguine enthusiasm using its refreshingly unconventional heroes. equal parts fascinating and horrifying, and never not entertaining. this book will take root at the base of your brain, threading its tentacles into your spinal cord and requiring you to keep turning pages until the bloody end. Chris Panatier knocks it out of the park The fascinating characters are sure to keep the reader's attention. 'If you like your dystopian futures with a twist, then The Phlebotomist is the story for you. Highly recommended.'
