Overview

A futuristic novel for young adults, The Blood of the Lamb trilogy is, at its heart, political - a reflection on the way a few very powerful (mostly white) men hold the balance of power all around the world and maintain it through intimidation, incarceration, and fear.

When Maryam arrives back at Onewēre and tries to loosen the Apostles' religious stranglehold by sharing the miraculous remedy for Te Matee lai, she finds herself captured once again - prey to the Apostles' deadly game. The ruling elite manipulate her return by setting in motion a highly orchestrated ritual before a hysterical and brain-washed crowd. Somehow Maryam must get the islanders to listen to her plea that they start thinking for themselves - hoping to stir the independence in their hearts, even as she finds herself on the brink of death.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for The Blood of the Lamb:

"Just the thing for those readers still hungry for dystopias." - Kirkus Reviews 

"Readers who love dystopian fiction, yet are searching for a unique storyline, should take a chance with Hager's novel. The imperfect protagonist, the low-key romance that sparks life into a dangerous story, and the urgency the characters carry make Hager's The Crossing an addicting and thought-provoking read."  - Blogcritics

"A post-apocalyptic thriller of such force and originality...."  - Booktopia SF & Fantasy

Kirkus Reviews
2014-05-14
The Blood of the Lamb trilogy concludes.After her near-fatal illness in Into the Wilderness (2014), Maryam prepares to leave the refugee camp and return to Onewere. Though Onewere and its white religious zealots are dangerous, she must return, armed as she is with a cure for the plague Te Matee Iai. Her dearest friend, Ruth—now pregnant following a rape—is determined to stay and teach her fellow refugees, leaving Maryam to tough out the return journey alone. Maryam’s shocked when her former enemy, Lazarus, follows her home, as she’s oblivious to his developing affections. The escape from the camp, sea journey and island survival adventure are well-enough-paced, but once Maryam and Lazarus arrive back home, momentum grinds to a halt. For more than half the novel, Maryam and Lazarus are caught in an endless, bleak cycle: distrustful arguments with each other, gushing bodily fluids of all sorts, shared capture, sexual violence, degradation by their enemies, brief hope. Lather, rinse, repeat. Without any further development, the trilogy’s every weakness is accentuated, not least the inexplicable primitive naïveté of Maryam’s people, as vulnerable to pseudo-Christian trickery as if their pre-apocalypse society had never been part of the industrial world.In this conclusion, coarseness is used as a substitute for realism, despair as a substitute for character growth: skip. (Post-apocalyptic romance. 15-17)
