The trouble with being a vampire is... you can't get a decent haircut. You live on guinea-pig blood. And most of the world's population wants to kill you. Nina Harrison became a vampire in 1973, when she was fifteen. Since then, life's Life has been one big drag - mostly because she spends all her time with a bunch of vampires, in a vampire therapy group.Then one of them gets staked by an anonymous vampire slayer, and things become even worse: while tracking down the culprit, Nina and her fellow vampires end up in the middle of an illegal werewolf-fighting racket, and find themselves the target of some genuine villains who'll stop at nothing to get their werewolf back.
