As a child, Carrie was abandoned by her mother.
All his life Elias has been treated differently from other teenagers. Protected. Guarded.
He always thought it was because his Dad had a special job that put him in danger.
It’s only when Elias starts to get thirsty that he realises his family is part of a much darker secret. A secret that involves him. A secret that will change the world.
I’m well aware that many teenagers want a read that’s super-short but has real meat.
So here we have it. Short, fast-paced, and toothily gripping – a vampire story.
