Books of Blood is a collection of horror fiction novels written by British author Clive Barker between 1984 and 1985. There were six novels in total, all entitled The Book of the Damned. The first novel, The Book of the Damned, is an incredibly creepy tale of the supernatural that you'll enjoy reading about.
The second book in the series, The Burning, is written in the same vein as The Book of the Damned, but is a little less scary in nature. However, the story is still quite disturbing and provides much more entertainment for those who read it than does The Book of the Damned.
In the third book, The Last Stand, Clive Barker again provides readers with an extremely scary story. However, unlike The Book of the Damned, this is more of a fantasy novel than a supernatural one, so it doesn't have any real supernatural elements to it, but rather, an evil group of vampires trying to control human life in an area of England called "The Lake District".
In the fourth book, The House on the Rock, Clive Barker once again uses the vampire concept in his novel, and this time, it's not a fictional vampire who has taken over a city but rather a real vampire who are trying to get rid of all the people he's killed. You'll enjoy reading this book a lot more than The Book of the Damned, because this is a little bit more modern in tone.
The fifth book, The Lost Child, is the final book in the series and also happens to be the one which is most widely known as The Lost Child. This novel is a lot of fun to read and is very similar to The Lost Child in that it revolves around a young man who is trying to find his way back to normal society after being lost for some time. The novel is about the man's search for a way to communicate with his brother, who was also once a vampire.
If you want to read a very unique and interesting book, and you are also an avid reader of horror literature, then you should definitely check out the Books of Blood series by Clive Barker. It's one of the best things you can do for yourself. You will certainly have a lot of fun with it and enjoy it quite a bit.
