SINCE the release of my daughter Denise’s first novel The Tree some seven years ago — a book that garnered rave reviews and the efforts by some to have it made into a movie — we have awaited the sequel. And it’s finally here…
The Blood continues the story with Denise’s incredible word-smithing to shape realistic characters, craft incredible imagery, and make the story linger long after you’ve put the book down. So many themes in The Blood speak profoundly to our times. I couldn’t be more proud as her father… and delighted as a reader. But don’t take my word for it: read the reviews below!
Today, we are officially releasing her new novel — but with a slight hitch. Due to interruptions in the supply chain, there is a paper shortage. Our printer says it’s literally sitting in a cargo container somewhere on the West coast (which is ironic, given that Canada has vast forest reserves). So, The Blood is presently only available on Kindle (we still have print copies of The Tree, which is also on Kindle. See below). However, we are expecting to print the book with a limited run. You can pre-order to reserve your copy today. To download a digital copy now, just click on the images below… and enter the beautiful and inspiring world of this young and gifted Catholic writer.
“The Blood” – Reviews
like Michael O’Brien and Natalia Sanmartin Fenollera,
Denise Mallett represents a new generation of gifted Catholic storytellers.
In The Blood, Mallett once again demonstrates her unique ability
to unsettle her readers, charm them, and fill them with hope.

“The Tree” – Reviews
Mallett has penned a truly epic human and theological tale
of adventure, love, intrigue, and the search
for ultimate truth and meaning.
If this book is ever made into a movie—and it should be—
the world need only surrender to the truth of the everlasting message.
—Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, author & speaker
From the first word to the last I was captivated, suspended between awe and amazement. How did one so young write such intricate plot lines, such complex characters, such compelling dialogue? How had a mere teenager mastered the craft of writing, not just with proficiency, but with depth of feeling? How could she treat profound themes so deftly without the least bit of preachiness? I am still in awe. Clearly the hand of God is in this gift. —Janet Klasson, author of The Joy of Penance blog
Exquisitely written… From the very first pages of the prologue, I could not put it down!—Janelle Reinhart, Christian recording artist
From the moment I picked up The Tree, I could not put it down… What most impressed me, however, was the depth of knowledge and understanding of the human person that Mallett shows in her characters. A great story and treasure. —Jennifer M.
This is my daughter’s first novel. I was expecting to read it, pat her on the head and say, “Good job, dear.” Instead, I found myself in utter awe that this came out of her mind, her prayer-life. It is one of the most moving novels I have read in a long time and the characters and story have never left me. Finally, Christian fare that isn’t cheesy. I can honestly say I can’t wait for the sequel. —Mark Mallett, author of TheNowWord.com and The Final Confrontation
