This week's tease is from the Young Adult book End of Days: A Night Runner novel by Max Turner (page 106).
"When she spoke about my true father, her voice changed. It always did when she talked about him--Dr. Robert Douglas Thomson, archaeologist and vampire hunter."
Summary: Zachariah Thomson has spent the past year getting used to the idea that his best friend, Charlie, and the lovely Luna are now vampires, like him. As they learn to cope with the changes this brings, a mysterious creature appears. Likened to the Beast of the Apocalypse, it begins to dismantle the network of support around Zack, who discovers he is more than just an orphaned vampire – he is the subject of an ancient prophecy that relates to the End of Days. As friends and enemies, old and new, throw his world into chaos, he is forced to re-examine what it means to be good at a time when it seems that only the strong and ruthless can survive.
End of Days, 304 pages, is published by St. Martin's Griffin and is available now.
