New to Anaheim, California is Aaron Capps. This young Texas transplant is in for a rude awakening as he confronts a new form of urban vampire. They can make others do what they want. They make others feel what they want them to feel. Puppets without strings. They live off the soul’s force, feeding off bodily fluids. High school is just the tip of the iceberg, and no member of his family is safe from those that have The Knack.
A family battlefield survivor, Kyna Miller is self-control personified. This high school warrior leads her tribe with an iron hand, taking from them, taking for them. Yet, newcomer Aaron is different. He’s more than fresh meat. He’s a possibility.
Writers of fiction see the world for what it is, and they don’t hold back reality to satisfy the needs of others. They tell it like it is. Five stars for this carefully crafted look into a new urban mythos.
