Tagline: Something evil this way comes, unfortunately for it, Peter Saints is waiting.


Seventeen-year-old Peter Saints' life stinks. But things are about to get much worse. First, his parents are murdered in front of him. Then another victim dies in his arms.


Visions plague Peter with warnings that something wants him for a sinister cause. It desires the one thing that Peter refuses to give - his blood.


On the run with Angel, a scruffy kid, Peter starts to unravel the mystery. It's the one secret the heavens sought to hide from the world. Unfortunately, when Peter finds the answer he hopes that will save the girl he loves, he opens the door to a great evil that happens to be salivating to meet him.




A sickening thump made Peter jerk around. His face crinkled with

fury. The car threw the sparse girl’s body upwards into the air, and sped

off down the street. She bounced several times on the pavement. Peter ran

and knelt beside her. Blood dribbled from her lip. And he felt like gar-

bage, being the cause of her injury.

She smiled at him. “Petah. I…knew you would come.” Her dazed

eyes never left his face. “Take me home, Petah.”

He shook his head and searched around. Surprised the street was now

deserted. Tendrils of guilt filled his chest. Another one…my damn fault.

My fault.
