Neither popular nor forgettable, Nicholas somehow gets everyone’s attention. As much as he’d like his fellow high schoolers to keep their distance from him, he attracts them like magnates. But that’s not all he’s managed to draw out of the woodwork; enter several shady characters in a van and a few gruesome murders, and Nicholas suddenly finds himself right smack in the path of fear.


Marcus Damanda has written a truly soul searching novel about one boy who desperately wants to find his role in society. Instead, his world is turned further into chaos with tons of blood and several sharp fangs after him.


Nicholas’ one main point of focus, the unusual attraction and connection to Alexis, one of the van travelers.


The author draws you right into Nicholas’ chaotic world, with realistic dialogue and descriptive details. This book is better suited for the 16 and older crowd.


Damanda’s style reminded me of Stephen King where he creates and introduces a realistic world and character to his reader then plunges them deep into the surrounding conflicts.


Great read.
