Quinn Lennox has always been a little bit different, but the one person she loves unconditionally is her brother, Zack. So when he calls, frantic about his girlfriend’s disappearance, she comes running. While they’re searching for Lily, Zack and Quinn stumble across a strange beam of sunshine and fall into the perpetually dark world of Washington, V. C. (Vamp City), which exists several hundred years in the past.
Vamp City is run by vampires, and any human residents are blood slaves. Captured, Quinn is taken by darkly sexy vampire Arturo. Arturo feeds on blood and fear. He explains to Quinn that Vamp City was created by a sorcerer centuries ago, but now the magic is failing. The vampires are hunting for a new sorcerer to save the city. Desperate to save Zack, Quinn will do whatever is necessary, but discerning friend from foe is nearly impossible. (AVON, Jun., 370 pp., $7.99)
