All Chris really wants is to be a normal kid, to hang out with his friends, avoid his parents, and get a date with Rebecca Schwartz. Unfortunately, Chris appears to be turning into a vampire. So while his hometown performs an ancient ritual that keeps Tch'muchgar, the Vampire Lord, locked in another world, Chris desperately tries to save himself from his own vampiric fate. He needs help, but who can he trust? Chet, the oddly cynical celestial being, who has offered his assistance -- or the Thing, who claims to be from the Forces of Light and follows Chris wherever he goes? Or is Chris without hope and utterly alone? In this tale of terror and teen angst, author M.T. Anderson creates a startling world of suspense and dark humor that will haunt the reader long after the book is closed.v
