This adventure takes place in the world of Windemere, but it focuses on a new species of vampires called Dawn Fangs. While they showed up a few times in Legends of Windemere, their origins and culture have been a mystery until now. So, where did these deadly predators come from?

What appeals to me about these books is the historical setting, the paranormal aspects of the stories, and the fact they are cozies.
