Medication can keep Connie's minor vampire heritage, but not the world, at bay. By accident, she discovers that mixing this cutting-edge medication with a glass of white wine will turn her into a bat. After fate takes Connie from London to Saxmundham, Suffolk, she makes the acquaintance of blood, death and an Army of Darkness. But it's not all positive. A mysterious combination of earthquake and explosion produces a part-radioactive, part-magical contamination, so that her new home falls within an exclusion zone for humans. A colony has been born. Then Connie's invisible, Harley Street doctor informs her of a new twist in her non-human heritage, which precedes her direct involvement with a prophecy, and a quest to save the fledgling colony. Her main ally is the town squire from the Middle Ages, a full-blown vampire who now drums in a folk-metal band, the other members of which are fast-moving, out of focus local spirit beings.
