The First Bite Is the Deepest
“Funny and clever and emotionally hard-hitting” "A perfectly creepy read." Elisa Catrina's debut novel begins as a quirky send-up of vampire romance, but quickly turns sinister. High schooler Stella Ortiz starts dating the mysterious new guy, but her friends are convinced he's bad news: Sebastian misses tons of school, he day-drinks something that smells like pennies, and oh yeah, he's a vampire.

High school senior Stella Ortiz loves field hockey, her friends, biology class, and the occasional trashy vampire romance. So when she encounters mysterious transfer student Sebastian Weber--a real-life version of her favorite novels' broodingly gorgeous protagonists--she's immediately drawn to him. Her friends, on the other hand, aren't impressed: Sebastian misses tons of school, he day-drinks something that smells like pennies, and oh yeah, he's a vampire.
What starts as a quirky send-up of vampire romance quickly turns sinister. Stella and her friends find themselves pitted against not only Sebastian, but his entire family--a cadre of supernatural predators determined to keep the secret of their existence from spreading any further.
Sometimes, breakups really are a matter of life and death.
Fans of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Christopher Moore, and Dracula will love this mordant take on vampire romance, which readers have called “funny and clever and emotionally hard-hitting” as well as "a perfectly creepy read."
