Blood Boy by Barry Lyga (Jasper Dent #0.8)

Blood Boy by Barry Lyga

Blood Boy is a short novella, a prequel in the Jasper Dent series by Barry Lyga. I’ve read the 3 main books, and now I’m catching up to the 4 remaining novella, to complete the series. While I don’t read all novellas in every mystery series I’m reading, Jasper Dent is so good that I couldn’t miss the opportunity to read everything the author has written about my favorite characters so far. Blood Boy focuses on Howie, Jazz’s best friend, who has a rather debilitating illness. He is hemophiliac, which means that pretty much any bump to his body will […] Read more »

Blood Of My Blood by Barry Lyga (Jasper Dent #3)

Blood Of My Blood by Barry Lyga

Blood Of My Blood is the third (and last) book in the Jasper Dent young adult thriller trilogy by the author Barry Lyga.

The […] Read more »

I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga

I Hunt Killers is the first book in the Jasper Dent young adult thriller series by the author Barry Lyga. I’ve read the book last year, however as I’m reading book 3 right now, I figured I’ll add the first two book reviews, so by the time I’m through with the third book, I have the whole series on Mystery Sequels listed and reviewed. Jasper Dent is the son of Dear Old Dad Billy Dent, a most notorious serial killer who has murdered over 100 people over the course of 20 years before he was finally caught and imprisoned.
