★ Purple Dragonfly Award Winner for Middle Grade Fiction ★
When Nick finds a body on a golf course with fangs, bite marks, and a hole in its chest, he wonders: Is the victim a vampire? Nick is about to learn there is blood that gives eternal life and it has nothing to do with Dracula.
Nick Caden has a “supernatural” knack for finding trouble, and his relentless search for the truth leads him into worlds of darkness with grave consequences and really creepy mysteries. After solving the Deadwood ghost story, Nick lands a job as a roving reporter for The Cool Ghoul Gazette, a website on paranormal disturbances. When the editor sends Nick to Transylvania, North Carolina, Nick finds there is a type of blood that gives eternal life but it has nothing to do with death, darkness, and corpses in caskets.
Is the victim a real vampire? Or will Nick find that his new job is about to suck the life out of him? Some facts and truths will scare the life out of us and that can be a good thing.
