Gina Covello, teen vampire and all-around glamour queen, is back in a new adventure that pits her and her heartthrob Bobby against enemies new and old.

Dressed to kill but never taking more than a sip, Gina’s working for the Feds, who keep her on a tight rein, cutting into Gina’s idea of a good time. Her job here is to act as bait while hunting a teenage killer who is far too bloodthirsty to be a regular human boy. The wardrobe is to die for, but Gina’s not enthusiastic about her task, which quickly gets even hinkier than usual…just who is the enemy now? No longer sure whom to trust, Gina must walk a tight line between her government handlers, the old vamps making Tampa, Fla., their new headquarters, an inventor who can’t get a patent to save his soul and a growing gang of murderous teens who are way too into the whole goth look for comfort. Add in her very first human servant-wannabe, and Gina’s nights are becoming more than full. As ever, Gina's feisty, funny narration carries the day. Gina never fails to please, as she strides down the runway of afterlife with just the right mix of humor, make-up advice, youthful lust that never crosses the line and a kung-fu style all her own. 

This one doesn’t miss a beat.
