When Noah Vance wakes up with a sore neck the morning after a party, he has no idea that his life is about to change forever. Two strange bites are the only clue to his mysterious pain, and later Noah discovers that these bites have transformed him into a vampire. His strange transformation leads him to a path of discovery about himself, a mysterious party-goer named Hayley, a string of murders, and his estranged father. With everything that's happening to him, Noah wonders if he'll ever be normal again. His best friend is suspicious of his every move. And how will he ever be able to tell Paige, the girl he's pined for, that he loves her now that he's a vampire that wants to drink the blood of his classmates and that occasionally turns into a butterfly? His new gifts will certainly change his world forever, but can Noah discover that being a vampire might actually solve his own problems and even a murder.
