Finals are over and twenty-year old Claire Matthews can hardly wait to begin summer break until...she arrives home to an army of police swarming her parents' front lawn. Detective Reynolds delivers the dreadful news that the man and woman inside the home are dead and Claire is forced to identify their mummified bloodless bodies. Her world comes to a grinding halt when she learns that it is her mother and father who are the deceased, and her younger brother, JJ, is nowhere to be found. The predator accused...a vampire.
Claire is no stranger to vampires: in fact, these days vamps are a dime a dozen. One-hundred-thirty years ago a vow was made, combing the two worlds. A vampire's survival no longer required a human sacrifice. Vampire Centers were created, offering human blood through transfusion: yet, why were her parents bled dry? Why now? What changed? Could a rouge vampire be responsible?
