When several girls go missing in the Washington, D.C. area, detective Christina Randall goes on the case; the girls who are found have been the victim of rape...but that's far from the worst part. It seems each victim of this serial rapist has been impregnated--and are experiencing excelerated pregnancies. Within one week, each victim gives birth to a primate-looking creature that immediately turns and devours its mother.

Margaret Connolly's daughter is now missing. Margaret works at the CalPark

This is probably the worst book I have ever read!! yes really...The plot?? Mad scientist Nicolae Schaefer using a genetically modified fetus to create a super-being...wait for it an ape!! and what shall we call it..what about Bigfoot..now that's an original name..not!

All that happens is lots of "bigfeet" (plural of bigfoot!) running around killing and pregnating..whilst our ...more

Blood Born starts out as a horror mystery, where victims of rape in the Washington D.C. area are all impregnated and the gestation period is accelerated to the point where it is forty times faster than normal. In other words, these women will produce a full term baby within one week. The case is being handled by Detective Christina Randall and we are introduced to her and Margaret Connolly, the mother of one of the rape victims, who also happens to be a fertility specialist working for a local f ...more

“Blood Born” is my first experience with author Matthew Warner. The publisher was offering signed copies if you pre-order, and since I like supporting the small press and had heard good things about the author, I bought one. While I think many of the complimentary blurbs from other horror authors and critics are fairly accurate, I was not as in love with “Blood Born” as everyone else. It was still, however, an entertaining experience.

Although the reading itself was very simple and the prose fair

period of one week, it is clear that the rapes aren't being committed by human perps. Detective Christina Randall is investigating the case. The mom of one of the victims, Margaret Connolly, is a doctor at CalPark Fertility Clinic. Randall's investigation leads to this same clinic where a missing person had recently been seen. While she suspects that something is awry at the clinic, all hell breaks loose with an onslaught of women being raped, and people getting killed and eaten by these bigfoot ...more

I would recommend this book for people who like detective stories with a touch of societal chaos and sci/fi thrown in.
