Not everyone wants to see the world saved . . .
Time is running out. Cities are being engulfed in the Mist and humanity is on the brink of extinction. Theo believes he has found a way to stop mankind from Turning, but he doesn’t know how to alter Cass’s unique blood into a cure. Or if it can even be done.
Meanwhile, Cass struggles with the idea that she is possibly the savior of the world—a world she is not sure is worth saving.
From the Winchester manse to the steel city of Decadenn, there is something more chasing Cass than the House of Lords or the masked man who can walk in the Mist. Soon she must decide if she will use her blood to save mankind or let those who only care about themselves perish.
Book 2 of the Skyworld series.
Cass can survive in the Mist.1 The secret in her blood could help everyone, but does she want to save an evil world of people who killed the poor to save themselves, and tried to kill her because of her special ability? Still, in this world the heroic Captain Greeley rescued her from life on the streets, and Theo Winchester is willing to forsake his privileged life to find a cure for the Mist. How can Cass confront her hatred and distrust of the echelon, working closely with Theo to find a cure for the Mist and a solution for the zombie-like Turned? Morgan L. Busse’s Blood Secrets charts a satisfying conclusion to the Skyworld duology, with dashing prose that draws readers into this world of steam and mystery.
