"Where has everyone gone?"
That's the question 15-year-old Annabelle 'Birdy' Finch is asking. As a 100-year storm descends on Los Angeles, Birdy's not the only one looking for answers to the city's vanishing population.
A wheelchair-bound Army veteran watches the world from his apartment window, and what he sees terrifies him.
An LA detective has two missing patrol cops, a bloody crime scene, but no bodies. A desperate mother will stop at nothing in her search to find her missing daughter.
But the storm provides the perfect cover for an even greater threat; an ancient and terrible evil that stalks the city's residents, mercilessly hunting them within their homes. Together, the survivors must fight to escape their drowning city and the creatures that now roam its streets under the cover of perpetual darkness.

Finished this in one Day! GREAT book!
Holy Cow. I loved this one. Vampires are true monsters here! I read a few reviews that said it was predictable but I had to say I didn't find the story predictable at all. It was truly spooky and delightfully scary. I won't ruined how the vampires end up coming to the U.S. but I'll start with what happens when they're here. A few dead bodies go missing from a plane crash, homeless people start to vanish, L.A. is preparing for a HUGE storm and everyone assumes the missing people are prepping for the upcoming storm. Birdy is a 15 year old parkour protege and being raised by her mother who works two jobs. (I don't know what happened here the author really played up the parkour in the beginning but Birdy never really used it escaping from the vampires I was just waiting for her to do some phenomenal leaps & tricks to escape her imminent doom at the last minute but just one minor scene and that was the end of it) Tyrese is a war vet who has lost both his legs and his wife and hasn't left his apartment in two years. He spends his time in his wheelchair by the window.............not a creepy old man its just his view to the outside world. Birdy's mom is attacked at the gas station she works at and disappears. The police come to her apartment and in order to stave off foster care she says Tyrese is her uncle. Eventually the vampires make it to their building. They call the police and Collins who was investigating Birdy's mother's disappearance/involvement in the murders at the gas station initially thinks Tyrese killed a human.....until he sees her face! Collins/Tyrese/Birdy and a homeless woman named Janine try to make it out of the city before the vampires get them. They're everywhere and have been quietly taking over the city while everyone preps for the storm. They eventually make it to Las Vegas but not everyone survives. I won't give away the ending. I loved this one and I'm hoping Paul Antony Jones turns it into a series. I'd love to find out what happens to the survivors and those that were changed!!!! More please!

Not the run of the mill vampire or zombie story.
This is not the expected, not the beginning nor the end. Perhaps we will get a sequel with a bit of luck. Well told, kept me wishing to hear it all yet, not wanting it to end.
