Abstract

"Born in Blood" is a science fiction novel geared toward young adults. It takes place in an alternative, modern society driven by human instincts, repulses, and reaction. The public's newly found knowledge of people with extraordinary abilities stirs innate human fear, especially when it turns out the mutants' powers manifest in catastrophic and fatal ways. The story centers around one mysterious individual, a John Doe, who is found on a Chicago train of the sleeping dead. He is taken to a government run facility, the Citadel, where he is faced with more questions than answers and is forced to confront his own humanity.
