Blood and Water


“Jay needed so many things. He needed Maia to be well. He needed a cure for both of them. He needed the world to somehow start making sense again. Above everything, he needed someone to tell him why these terrible things were happening to him.”

Seventeen-year-old Jay Harris lives in a London struck down by a deadly virus. His parents are dead, along with half the world. When Jay’s sister Maia falls ill, he must find a cure before he loses her, too. But unbeknownst to Maia, Jay is also sick… and he’s running out of time to save them both.

Praise for Blood and Water


“I really liked this book. It made my train rides to and from work quite exciting, I must say, got me thinking about what would happen to the world if this sort of thing really occurred. And to me, that’s what’s so good about the post-apocalyptic genre: What if? What if your family all died because of a horrible virus? What if you caught the virus and had the horrible realization that perhaps everyone you know might completely die. Life as you know it is ripped from you.”


“The characters drive this story. It’s a story of friendship, of hardship, and of discovery.

The story carries us through an emotional journey that mirrors their footprints from the familiar to the foreign, where circumstances force the characters to grow.

Briana handles this very well, and it all unfolds quite naturally.””
