From the Back Cover: Shane is so gonna kill me.
Literally. 
My hotheaded brother is a Chaser. We are--I was--fifth generation humans given highly specialized training. Tactical, combat, and weapons. Trained from birth to kill vampires. 
And now I'm... I can't even think it.
I wake just after sundown, curled in a ball between a dumpster and the back of a building. From comatose to completely alert in one nanosecond.
I remember everything.
The flight from Boston to Heathrow. 
Searching for the vampire that had attempted to take my little sister hostage six weeks ago. The others in our little band might be content to sit back and wait--they call it preparing--but I'm not. I wasn't.
I ended up in an industrial part of the city.
I remember the ambush.
The turning.
My turning.
I'm now a...vampire. My own mortal enemy.
And my brother will never forgive me. He's spent the last eighteen years, his entire life, working to erase vamps from the face of the earth.
And Chloe, my sister... She's a Supernatural, though we aren't quite sure how that happened. Both our parents, deceased now, were human. 
As a vampire, I'm a danger to her. Vampires are über-attracted to supernatural blood. I don't even know if I'll be able to resist attacking her, assuming I ever see her again. Have I lost my sister forever? I don't know how I'll be able to stand being without her--annoyingly--upbeat attitude and our girls-only secrets.
My senses are on high alert. My skin is so sensitive, the air around me seems to vibrate. My throat burns... the thirst. Bloodlust.
I have bloodlust now.
I want to cry. But I haven't given in to that impulse in years, not since I was a little girl, and I won't now.
I won't drink, either. 
I don't know how long it will take me to die from starvation, but maybe I've got a few days to find the vampire, Stephen, before I starve or have to stake myself.
Chasers don't typically have a long lifespan. We're constantly seeking danger as we fight. But dying at sixteen...? I'm not ready. 
Touching my face gives me no answers. It still feels like it always has. I've seen many vamps, and the angular, sharper look of their features. And thanks to my brother, I've been up close and personal with a vamp--his girlfriend, Maggie--and I know there's some way to change from appearing human to becoming all vampire. I've seen her go from a monster with black irises and fangs to a human girl with bright green eyes in a fraction of a second. Of course, Maggie is an anomaly--a vampire who doesn't hunt humans and seems to have a conscience. At this point, I can't be sure that I'm still a good guy.
Question: how do you turn the vampire on and off? These are my first moments as the monster, and the newness frightens me. I know I'll be better off keeping the vampire part of me off for as long as I can. If I can.
I need to get out of here.
I need to get weaponed-up and find some way of tracking down the vampire that attempted to kidnap my sister.
But I'm alone in a city I don't know.
With bloodlust singing through every vein.
