Quincie P. Morris, teen restaurateur and neophyte vampire, is in the ?ght of her life--or undeath. Even as she adjusts to her new appetites, she must clear her best friend and true love, the hybrid-werewolf Kieren, of murder charges; thwart the apocalyptic ambitions of Bradley Sanguini, the seductive vampire chef who "blessed" her; and keep her dead parents' restaurant up and running. She hires a more homespun chef and adds the preternaturally beautiful Zachary to her waitstaff. But with hundreds of new vampires on the rise and Bradley off assuming the powers of Dracula Prime, Zachary soon reveals his true nature--and a ?aming sword--and they hit the road to staunch the bloodshed before it's too late. But even if they save the world, will there be time left to salvage Quincie's soul? With a wink and a nod to Bram Stoker, best-selling author Cynthia Leitich Smith unites the casts ofTantalize and Eternal in a delicious new dark fantasy her fans will devour.
