Charley Rabbit is a mentally disabled young man who lives quietly with his widowed mother Mitzi in the American Midwest - but not for long! Charley develops a rapid intellectual growth spurt after being bitten by a vampire. Fressenda and her fraternal twin brothers Cass (Castor) and Lux (Pollux) take an interest in Charley and Mitzi and become part of their extended family, but Mitzi is wary and senses that the changes in Charley may be part of something mysterious, dark and sinister. In the meantime, she is offered something she didn't believe was possible - a clandestine relationship with a younger, and incidentally immortal, male.
The ensuing connection that Charley and his mom develop with V-net vampires, (a brilliantly organized organization that has piggybacked on the existing infrastructure in the U.S), an ancient family history and a dangerous and wily adversary, the Vampire Lord Adrastos puts both their lives and their new relationships at risk and takes them to some of the most remote locales on the planet.
