Blood doesn’t lie.
In a near-future United States, the government has created state-funded organ farms to combat massive organ shortages. Here, a sub-human class of “Unpeople” is raised for organ harvesting. Safe, healthy, and readily available, Un-organs quickly replace the antiquated donor system, offering hope for thousands of the terminally ill.
At least, that’s the idea. But when the father of seventeen-year-old Tabitha Ray is diagnosed with kidney failure, none of this matters: her parents won’t take a farmed organ, for any reason. Enter surgical resident and medical prodigy Liam Bellasario. After meeting Tabby, the first voluntary donor he’s ever encountered, he can see she’s desperate. When she suddenly vanishes, and the Director of the Transplant Center warns Liam to leave the matter alone or risk termination, he has to decide how much he’s willing to risk to find the truth behind her disappearance and the industry he’s devoted to.
Finding the truth is easier for Tabby, who wakes from a drug-induced haze to find herself in the sub-human holding compound dubbed “The Blood Farm.” The bombshell of discovering her sub-human genetics is nothing compared to the knowledge of what her new (and likely, short) future holds. Faced with the prospect of being portioned up and sold, Tabby sets her mind on escape. But after landing herself on the wrong side of one of the Farm’s guards, Tabby must make alliances if she’s going to stand a chance of getting out. Or even surviving.
