    Immortal vampire-like fantasy

    A small colony hidden in a dense forest in Washington state, USA, is home to a group of humans and immortals co-existing towards a common goal: to bring life-saving blood to anyone in the world who needs it. "Blood Colony" features a 17-year-old immortal named Fana whose parents and their friends are leading the charge to eradicate AIDS in Africa.
    Hundreds of years ago, Fana's mother Jessica and father Dawit lived in Africa and were fighting illnesses by working with a scientist whose ideas would bring an end to disease and death. Dawit, an immortal mated with Jessica, a mortal whom Dawit turned immortal, and their union created Fana, whose unprecedented strength and abilities have made her The Chosen One.
    Even the tiniest drop of Fana's blood no matter how diluted can reverse sickness, death, and even AIDS. Their mission is to bring the blood to all people who are sick in the world. They use the means of an underground railroad that runs worldwide to carry Fana's blood, called "Glow," to anyone who needs it. They keep Fana behind the colony walls so she is safe, with no one outside Colony walls knowing she is the source of Glow.
    However, one day Fana's best friend, a mortal named Caitlin, is taken hostage by Dawit and his friends The Life Brothers, and is in danger of losing her life or her memories because she has been caught selling Glow. Fana breaks Caitlin free and they go on the run to save Caitlin's life.
    While Dawit and The Life Brothers are trailing Fana, they realize there is a rogue group of immortals called Sanctus Cruor, who are working against their cause. Sanctus Cruor wants to use the blood to preserve only the fittest in the world through a process called "The Cleansing," and they are following Fana to try to have her for their own mission.
    A fight over Fana, and her blood, turns into a fight between good and evil with much death and loss. The Life Brothers can perform many tricks including mind and body control, yet they try to use their gifts for the good of the world. Sanctus Cruor, and their leader Michel, who believes he is Fana's soulmate, only care about one thing and don't care who gets hurt as long as they get what they want.
    Due's science fiction story of good versus evil has the main characters feeling human emotions even though many are not human, and ends up being an interesting and compelling tale.

    I cant wait for the next installment

    This is the 3rd installment of Due's series about Immortals. I loved it and its relevance. Although it was a lot longer and took me more days to read than My Soul to Keep and The Living Blood (3 days instead of 2), I enjoyed it. I am most interested in finding out what will happen to Fana next or to find if Khaldun will ever return?

    I do find this a great read, but would advise one to read the others first especially My Soul to Keep (my favorite of the series). Due did not disappoint and kept to her writing style and there were surprising events with the turn of every page.

    A reviewer

    I have read each of Ms. Due's books and this--like the first of the series--is an exceptional read. At first readers are a lil torn between what happened in the last book, but Due foreshadows and recalls past information that bring you present day . . . Buy, Read, and Enjoy!

    Highly Recommemded

    After reading Due's other books I couldn't wait to read Blood Colony. It was a great book. Great story line from beginning to end. I highly recommend others to read the series if they haven't. The book ended great.

    The Saga Continues...

    I truly enjoyed reading the last installment in this series. After reading the last two books, I always wanted to know what happens to Fana & Jessica & Dawit?? This book answers all my questions and more. I could only give the book a 4 star rating because I did not enjoy the end. I'm a sucker for happy endings and this one just seemed to be the best way to appease everyone. But otherwise a great read!
