“Of all the bad dreams I’ve ever had, I didn’t expect this one. I have to go back to school – and it’s a nightmare. But homework is the least of my problems as the bodies start piling up. The past is catching up with me.”

Vampire Prince and vampaneze killer he may be, but Darren still looks fifteen years old! Now someone has shopped him to the authorities, and it’s time for Darren to go back to school.
