Sometimes love burns. The intelligent loner, Anson, soon learns this when he falls in love...but the girl he wants isn't what she seems. Poppy is part of a secret organisation of vampires trained to fight werewolves. She's been sent to recruit Anson, and if she fails, they'll both have to outrun the rulers of her society...or face death together.
For Anson, finding out his new girlfriend is a vampire is only just the start of a really bad week. Not only is he being hunted by the leaders of a secret vampire society who either want to kill him or Turn him, he's discovered he's Poppy's "Blaze" - her supernatural soulmate. This has him questioning everything he thought he knew about his absent father, and himself. He's going to find out exactly how different things are when your girlfriend is a vampire...if he survives, that is.
Sucking blood is the least of Anson's problems... Life as a vampire at The Academy isn't all that bad for Anson, if you discount the daily beatings in Training and the fact that he hasn't seen his also-vampire girlfriend Poppy in weeks. While Poppy is in Retraining, Anson has been learning to be a good vampire, with the help of his warlock half-brother, Leo. But when Anson learns the truth behind his father's death, he vows revenge upon the leaders of The Academy. If he's going to take on the most powerful vampires in the country, he's going to need some backup - which comes in the form of a slightly psychotic vampire named Shard, a silent genius called Wilt, a bi-polar Irish-man by the name of Shaun and of course, Leo.
