After vampires killed her daughter, Jess fled the American South for a tiny college town in Vermont. She lives in a fire-blackened house with her crippled lover, her infant grandson... and an inhuman thing hidden in the attic.
Orphaned in childhood, college student Rebecca is still figuring out what family means. Jess's strange household feels warmer than Rebecca's foster family.
The vampire known as the Whistler is on Jess's trail, determined to kill her and reclaim what she stole from him. Innocent Rebecca, hungry for love, calls to something in his fetid soul.
Meanwhile, in the attic, the creature that was once a young mother, half-mad with bloodlust, plots revenge.
