"Fabulous paranormal tale"
In Chicago, though she knows how dangerous it is to meet a
stranger, Sophie feels a connection with her chat line
friend Oliver so she agrees to see him. Upon seeing her in
person at a bar and combining that with the blog exchanges,
he believes she is his destiny whom he lost about a
millennium or so ago. She ignores his new Age fetish as he
makes her come alive until an accident leaves her dying.
When she recovers, she realizes she is no longer human;
Oliver has changed her into a vampire, saving her "life".
Shocked, Sophie is not sure whether she should hate her
mentor or love him; she knows she still remains attracted
to him. Still she has the time of her life due to him until
she panics as she failed to feed the cat and runs away from
her teacher. Oliver is scared, a new feeling since he
became a bloodsucker, because he let his feelings interfere
with his duty. He failed to warn her to avoid fairies at
all cost. He is willing to die (except that he is already
dead), to save his beloved who insists she must combat the
dreaded death fairy.
THE MIDNIGHT WORK is a fabulous paranormal tale in which
there is an entirely different ethos system is in play.
Killing humans for supper is acceptable as most of species
vampire see them as cattle. Once converted, Sophie
understands this as she needs to dine too. Other
supernatural occurrences darken this eerie world as
