Graf's stuck in a town where no-one enters. . . and no-one leaves.
As a vampire Graf's free to indulge his every dark, dangerous and debauched whim. He was just looking for a good party, until a road-trip detour trapped him in the cursed town of Penance. The eerie community affects Graf in ways he never expected and he soon finds himself going against his very nature to protect town outcast Jessa from a sinister attack.
Keeping her safe is a surprising impulse, yet working with the human girl could be Graf's only hope of breaking the spell that binds the town. That is, if he can keep his lethal urges and deadly desires under control.
Armintrout (the Blood Ties series) traps GPS-challenged Graf McDonald, a tough-talking, chain-smoking vampire, in the town of Penance, Ohio, in this thin stand-alone. He's the first visitor in five years, as the community is being held in stasis by a monster called "It." After Graf saves 23-year-old Jessa from "It," she reluctantly allows him to hide from the sun in her basement. Having survived five years with few resources other than what she can trade for or grow, Jessa doesn't want to turn to Graf for help, but they come to lean on each other as the other locals target them for sacrifice. Armintrout wisely holds off on revealing the secrets of "It," allowing Graf to grow emotionally as he and Jessa get closer, but aside from the unusual premise, there's not much to distinguish this from other dark paranormal romances.
