A postgrad in paranormal studies, Clare Standing fights for vampire civil rights. But when her fieldwork takes her to Tokyo, she stumbles into a hidden community of the undead where violence is an art form, blood is power, and she’s a target. Fellow researcher Keita Matsudaira, a student of black magic, offers Clare a gift of power to slay the undead. Can she pay his price?
