“Vampire? Such a provocative word, wrapped in too many clichés and girly novels.” -Uncle Will, The Radleys
Yup, more vampires…admit it, you love them…or love to hate them, but either way they are here to stay. They are making their way into our literature and our movies, but they don’t always have to leave a bad taste in our mouths.
Author Matt Haig introduces us to what looks like a normal suburban couple, but underneath the facade The Radleys are anything but normal. Peter and Helen Radley are abstaining vampires, who have two teenagers, Rowan and Clara, who know nothing about their supernatural traits. After Clara experiences a tragic night their hidden life is threatened and in a haze of worry Peter calls upon his brother Will for help, but Will, a practicing vampire, has even more secrets that could destroy this family. Together they will come to realize some secrets need keeping; even lies can protect the ones you love.
