One of the first Izazov krvi books ever in print! Pic by MBP.

The first book is for now available in Croatian only. If you’re looking about info about the book, follow this link (in Croatian) and if you’re interested in having me talk about the book at your local library/bookstore/book café, drop me an e-mail or get in touch via Goodreads. I’m especially fond of book clubs (reading groups) and would be more than happy to attend your club’s meeting if you’re interested.

The cover was illustrated by the talented Aleksandar Žiljak, the design made by the creative team of Hangar 7. Izazov krvi was lovingly edited by Mihaela Marija Perković and received priceless inputs by Antonija Mežnarić and Mojca Brenko Puzak. I’m honoured to note that the novel has been awarded two Croatian speculative fiction awards for young adult novels in 2018 – the SFERA award in Zagreb in May, 2018 and the Artefakt award in Rijeka in October, 2018.
