A Teenage Suburban Vampire Novel with Bite

Washington, DC, August 13, 2007 --(PR.com)-- In Teeth by Marcus Damanda, a teenage outsider falls for a mysterious girl who may be involved with a series of local murders.

Excerpt from Teeth:

“My name’s Nicholas,” he said, feeling strangely emboldened by the simple fact that someone—a beautiful girl—was talking to him. That made two in a night, a personal record. The knowledge that there were three high school wrestlers nearby who wanted to grind him into bloody powder was almost inconsequential by comparison. “Why are you helping me?”
“It’s fun,” she answered pleasantly. “I was bored.”
“Who are you?”
“Alexis Damworth,” she said. “Now, shut up.”

Nicholas is on the run from … everybody. Ostracized by his peers, bullied by thugs, belittled and abused by his father, this teenage outsider finds love and acceptance in the embrace of Alexis Damworth, a beautiful girl with a terrifying secret.

When the quiet town of Fairview becomes the newest suburban murder capital of the United States, Nicholas the runaway becomes the prime suspect. Disgraced sheriff’s deputy Frank Gillis reluctantly brings the boy, whom he believes innocent, to the local juvenile detention center. But Alexis has other plans for Nicholas … and Alexis has friends. Very powerful friends.

After three nights of blood and murder, Fairview will have to endure one more terrible night, the longest night of the year—the winter solstice. Shadows will surround the detention center, poised for a final, bloody attack on a police force already stretched perilously thin. Nicholas, meanwhile, will be faced with a choice that will echo for all eternity.

Teeth is a horror story of surprising strength, a suspenseful, taut, and riveting tale that will chill the reader to the core.
