Vampires live disguised in a small town in Florida, mixing with the population. Newcomer Linda opens a bookshop and befriends Shana, who has an esoteric shop. There are young men and a blonde bimbo to go out with – and everything is fine until they get an invitation to a party at End House.
In Ms Leist’s village, there are several unexpected species. The hybrids, half-human, and half-vampire, are difficult to single out. Then there are two groups of vampires, one of them working to protect humans and hybrids. The other group, the DEAD, wants to take over the world and rid it of human beings. Of course, the humans just want to live normal lives. Also, the village, and especially, End house, is full of illusions, some resembling the scary house in a fairground, except for the fact that they are armed with real predators and flying saws just to mention a few. The horror isn’t absent, but it is accompanied by not a few winks. It was an entertaining read that gave an insight into the antics of humans – let alone the vampires.
A perfect oasis on the shore. You could not ask for anything more. Sun and surf during the day, But at night there’s hell to pay. The waves welcome daily swimmers, But at night there are no winners. Afraid to venture out after dark, Residents stay clear of the town park. One night, a hanging party was had By the dark creatures who are plain bad. Our town is plagued by darkness and woe. We don’t even know who is our foe.
Woven from black sheets of rain, fear covers in disarray. Anguished and frozen with pain, dark petals fall in dismay. Hell has come to Oasis, The Dead & gone at its side. Now hidden behind faces that are well-known far & wide.
