Though it has been years since vampires have joined humans in the light, something is suddenly and mysteriously causing good vampires to attack their neighbors and loved ones. When Sophie’s own mother becomes violent, Sophie and her best friend must find out who or what is responsible before all of their loved ones are claimed by the change. Main characters are white. Equal parts horror and mystery, this contemporary tale is sure to delight readers who enjoy a bit a spooky vibe with their conspiracy theories and whodunit adventures.
