Have you ever seen a ghost? In Starling City, there are spirits on every street corner. Everyone in town seems to have at least one ghastly tale to tell.
So, it's no wonder that a place like this breeds people like Blue and Julie, who summon demons just for fun and are obsessed with a local legend of a vampire named Matter. They hang out in dark clubs on a desolate downtown street and hope, desperately, that Matter will one day find them.
Because if they could become vampires, all of their problems will disappear. Just like the movies, they'll never get old, and they will never die. They won't have to worry about working or making rent, because the mundane world will no longer apply to them.
One night, their wish comes true: It turns out Matter is real. Except Blue and Julie soon learn that being a vampire isn't exactly like you see in the movies. Abandoned, they are left on their own to figure out how to live as the undead - not to mention what to do with all those dead bodies piling up.
"Haunting, creepy...a beautifully crafted entry into modern gothic literature. A fascinating tale of vampires, witches, and tempting the gods. Worth's writing takes you on a journey of discovery you might not wish to know..."- Sphera Girn, Witch Upon a Star series
"Worth's delicious book, with its cyphered grammar and bruised lip phrases, feels like prose as incantation. The world she describes - urban life reflected in powdery, blood-flecked mirrors - is there to distract the reader while she carves out blasphemous arcana on the inside of your skull. This book will make you crave drugs and sleep and blood." - Tony Burgess, author of Pontypool Changes Everything and The N-Body Problem
"A stunning work; I couldn't put it down. Worth's writing is detailed and vivid, down to the most minute detail, whether mundane or supernatural. Reading it felt a lucid dream...or a creepy paranormal experience that left me unsure if it actually happened. Worth has crafted an extraordinarily visual book that's practically begging to be made into a film." - Pleasant Gehman, author of Rock'n'Roll Witch; A Memoir Of Sex Magick, Drugs And Rock'n'Roll
