Our Other Blood (Lion of the Dark Series)
by K. Anthony Pagano
A year later, and Leo is still human. What gives? He should have completed his conversion from human to vampire by now. It's in his blood; he's certain of it.
To keep his growing bloodlust in check Leo drinks puréed lean ground beef twice a week. Not the tastiest stuff--could be worse. Although he could take "the" bite, he won't; Leo is resisting the urge for as long as he can.
