Dark, vermillion arts

This book is a compilation of linked stories. In it we see the very “human” side of Hemomancers (those born with the ability to control blood). It shows fear, jealousy, revenge, as well as stigmatisation and the effects of being ostracised from society, from mere bullying to being hunted down and killed. These are people who are both feared and reviled, sometimes correctly, oth

First off hemomancer means that you have the power to control the blood within yourself as well as others. I had to look this up as I wasn't sure what it was. This was a very interesting story with a great topic. I would love to find a full length story about this! These small ten stories were freaking amazing!! These stories are best read one right after the other as it builds on each one as well as gives you a new view for this kind of magic. The pacing was wonderful and the characters were gr ...more

This book was excellent. Lander's previous books (Warren Brood series) were good, but this one was REALLY GOOD. I found myself looking forward to reading more about the characters and stories, wanting to know more about how things work in the hemomantic world. The writing and dialogues flowed smoother too. There was also some very nice imagery in the descriptions, which I enjoyed. What an interesting world and very intriguing stories! ...more

Lander brings this marvelous collection of ten stories set in a highly realistic and credible alternate world shaped by the rise and fall of hemomancers.

It's the 21st century, and the hemomancers—individuals born with the enigmatic and frightening power to manipulate blood, are at the brink of extinction. Encumbered by crimes committed by their ancestors, hemomancers must find their own ways to survive the modern age.

In “D’sang” a man sacrifices his own life to protect his family and the downt

All Bleeds Through: Ten Stories of Hemomancy and the World it Shaped by Bartholomew Lander is in a class of its own. To begin with, I didn’t even know what a hemomancy was supposed to be, but as the stories unfolded, it drew me into each story. The book is amazing. Each story eventually ties together as twelve bloodlines fight for their freedom from humans and each other. The hemomancers can control their blood, to the point they can kill with it.

I’m on a roll with wirardry type books right now, and this one fit the bill. This was a different type of magic: Hemomancy. Hemomancy is the school of magic for manipulating the blood of oneself and others. A wizard who practices Hemomancy is known as a Hemomancer. A set of ten stories, they are not separate. If you read them one after another, you will gain an inkling of just how powerful the two dominant bloodlines are in this alternate universe. At odds with each other and in a seemingly unen ...more

Ten stories of the hemomancer and the magical powers

All bleeds through is a collection of ten stories that can be read individually or as a whole and tell the story if hemomancers and how they develop. Imagine having the power to manipulate blood in yourself or in others, this is what a hemomancer does. There are two dominate bloodlines and twelve original bloodlines. Each has a unique view in how they see the future and what they want from revenge to privacy. Each story will give you a new vie

Good stories but.....
I liked these stories but there was so much unexplained that if kind of made it hard to get thru.
This is my first read by this author, which may have something to do with it. Maybe there are other books in the same world that need to be read first?
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

A different kind of magic.

The ten stories here are about hemomancy, which to be truthful I had to look up. Bartholomew Lander weaves stories that are exciting and yet a little scary. I never would have thought of using my own blood as a weapon.

Blood Battle

All Bleeds Through - Ten Stories of Hemomancy and the World by Bartholomew Lander is a compelling compilation of separate stories that develop the idea of individuals who are hemomancers.

In taking to the internet one will discover the meaning of a hemomancer. Specifically hemo means blood and mancer is defined as a person who has the ability to perform magic.

Consequently, a hemomancer is an individual who can modify the blood that courses through their body. Often a hemomancer utiliz

All Bleeds Through: Create the world you wish to live in

In a universe where hemomancers existed, history records the rise and fall of these set of individuals who spilled blood. During their years of full domination, the end of their fervent crisis and troubles was brought to a halt by St. Isabeau during her medieval crusade.
Eventually in the 21st century these sets of species where still in existence but this time around they were trapped! Trapped because of the evil their ancestors had commit

A programmer, writer, and spider enthusiast. Bartholomew writes dark, character-driven urban fantasy with a dash of YA energy and a pinch of cosmic horror. When not writing about blood and spiders, he can be found running RPG campaigns and watching the horizon for the Mothman.
