Description

With a wink and a nod to Bram Stoker, New York Times best-selling author Cynthia Leitich Smith unites the casts of Tantalize and Eternal in a delicious dark fantasy her fans will devour.

Quincie P. Morris, teen restaurateuse and neophyte vampire, is in the fight of her life -- or undeath. Even as she adjusts to her new appetites, she must clear her best friend and true love, the hybrid werewolf Kieren, of murder charges; thwart the apocalyptic ambitions of Bradley Sanguini, the seductive vampire-chef who "blessed" her; and keep her dead parents’ restaurant up and running. She hires a more homespun chef and adds the preternaturally beautiful Zachary to her wait staff. But with hundreds of new vampires on the rise and Bradley off assuming the powers of Dracula Prime, Zachary soon reveals his true nature -- and a flaming sword -- and they hit the road to staunch the bloodshed before it’s too late. Even if they save the world, will there be time left to salvage Quincie’s soul?



About the Author
Cynthia Leitich Smith is the acclaimed and best-selling author of the first book in this series, Feral Nights, as well as the Tantalize quartet: Tantalize, Eternal, Blessed, and Diabolical, and the graphic novels Tantalize: Kieren s Story and Eternal: Zachary s Story, both illustrated by Ming Doyle. About Feral Curse, she says, "In small towns, everybody knows one another. That pushes secrets deeper and occasionally makes them more dangerous."
