Peeps-Scott Westerfield
Okay, let's clear up some myths about vampires. First of all, you won't see me using the v-word much. In the night watch, we prefer the term parasite positives, or peeps for short.
The main thing to remember is that there's no magic involved. No flying. No transforming into bats or rats either. We're talking about a disease.
After a chance encounter with a mysterious woman one night, Cal Thompson's life is changed forever. He's been infected with an insidious parasite. The good news: he's only a carrier-still sane, without the worst of the symptoms. The bad news: he's infected all his former girlfriends-and now they've turned into what Cal calls peeps. The rest of us call them vampires. And it's Cal's job to hunt them down before they create even more of their kind...
Why do I want to read this?
I LOVED Uglies by Scott Westerfield, and he's always been one of my favorite authors. I never really felt the urge to pick up this book until after Twilight, and I was obsessed with vampire books. That's not the only reason that I decided to read this book though. I think that this book sounds interesting and action-packed.
I always like adventure/action books when I was younger, so I've been looking into them a lot this year. Please feel free to recommend any books that you think that I would like!
