Wickedly witty, this alternative vampire story combines humour, romance and mystery with fast-paced action.
'If being a vampire were easy, there wouldn't have to be a reformed vampire support group.'
Nina became a vampire in 1973 when she was fifteen, and she hasn't aged a day since then. But she hasn't had any fun either, because her life is so sickly and boring.
It becomes even worse when one of the other vampires in her therapy group is staked by a mysterious slayer. Threatened with extinction, she and her fellow vampires set out to hunt down the culprit. Trouble is, they soon find themselves up against some gun-toting werewolf traffickers who'll stop at nothing.
Can a bunch of feeble couch potatoes win a fight like this? Is there more to being a vampire than meet the eye?
