From the Publisher
With a wink and a nod to Bram Stoker, New York Times
best-selling author Cynthia Leitich Smith unites the casts of
Tantalize and Eternal in a delicious dark fantasy her fans will
Quincie P. Morris, teen restaurateuse and neophyte vampire, is in
the fight 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 wait staff. 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 flaming sword -- and they hit the road to staunch the
bloodshed before it's too late. Even if they save the world, will
there be time left to salvage Quincie's soul?
