Mortally wounding an innocent person shakes Leo to his core—fleeing, he wakes in Wendy's bedroom.
Meanwhile, Alexander must do what no spectral knight has ever done before: borrow nosferatu skin.
And, Charles calls in a favor from Nancy, breaking more than ten years of radio silence. She has a vision: a jungle beast is coming for her!
Leo’s vampire powers are growing. And when Stanley proposes a solution that gives him the option to opt out, he still can’t make the choice that could save him. He must choose between two different fates, neither of which can offer a life without suffering.
As the blood sample Juliet collected from him inches closer to Marcus, Leo can’t stop thinking about Wendy and his feelings for her.

There is no going back. Only forward. Now that Leo and his family have crossed the Nebraska-Iowa state line it's a beeline toward Stanley's house, the only person who can answer why Leo has been taking so long to convert from human to vampire.
A love-interst blossoms. A cat lady appears. Leo's world begins to shrink as he begins to focus inward on who he really is or wants to be.
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.
