The Blood Miracles

Lisa McInerney

6 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

The second novel from the author of the Baileys Prize-winning THE GLORIOUS HERESIES.

'Fast paced, compelling, and thrilling, Lisa McInerney writes the type of fiction that is both beautifully crafted and immensely enjoyable' Louise O'Neill

'The Blood Miracles has all the brio, street smarts and vicious linguistic verve of The Glorious Heresies, but with this follow up Lisa McInerney also reminds us just how brilliantly accomplished and ruthlessly focused a storyteller she is' Colin Barrett

Like all twenty-year-olds, Ryan Cusack is trying to get his head around who he is.

This is not a good time for his boss to exploit his dual heritage by opening a new black market route from Italy to Ireland. It is certainly not a good time for his adored girlfriend to decide he's irreparably corrupted. And he really wishes he hadn't accidentally caught the eye of an ornery grandmother who fancies herself his saviour.

There may be a way clear of the chaos in the business proposals of music promoter Colm and in the attention of the charming, impulsive Natalie. But now that his boss's ambitions have rattled the city, Ryan is about to find out what he's made of, and it might be that chaos is in his blood.

  • Fast paced, compelling, and thrilling, Lisa McInerney writes the type of fiction that is both beautifully crafted and immensely enjoyable. She is one of the most exciting young authors to come out of Ireland in the last decade - Louise O'Neill

  • The Blood Miracles has all the brio, street smarts and vicious linguistic verve of The Glorious Heresies, but with this follow up Lisa McInerney also reminds us just how brilliantly accomplished and ruthlessly focused a storyteller she is - Colin Barrett

  • The age Barry refers to in these closing moments of our interview is the renaissance of Irish fiction which he has spoken of as a 'revivifying' force to his own craft. He smiles at the thought of being Kevin Barry's 'honorary uncle', and emits a gasp at the very idea of Lisa McInerney ('this woman who has a microchip of energy in every sentence') - Irish Independent

  • The second novel from award-winning Lisa McInerney is as brilliant as her debut, The Glorious Heresies . . . a fast-paced drama that fizzes with chaotic action and dark humour - Psychologies

  • This is a story that crackles with energy and just roars off the page
