Jennifer the Damned
When a sixteen-year-old orphan vampire adopted by an order of nuns matures into her immortal, blood-sucking glory, all hell literally breaks loose. Yet with every rapturous taste of blood, Jennifer Carshaw cannot help but long for something even more exquisite: the capacity to experience true love. As she struggles to balance her murderous secret life with homework, cross-country practice, and a new boyfriend, Jennifer delves into the terrifying questions surrounding her inhuman existence, driven by the unexpectedly human need to understand why she is doomed to a life she never chose.
A fast-paced horror novel which is also funny, intelligent, and spiritually deep… It is rare to find a book of this calibre.
…a gripping read that reminds us why the preternatural is a dramatic field for our enjoyment and (dare we say it!) moral growth.
