Skyla Hally has never known of Cruggles, immutable type creatures, guardians of the Vardon vampires. She has never seen Jiffles, protectors of the entranceway to Knob Rock where two secrets are securely and secretly kept, or the Box of Rigspul, where valuables are kept for the Hally Witch. All she knows is her simple life. That is until her seventeenth birthday, when her parents are brutally murdered by seven malicious vampires known as the Deathstalkers. These seven deadly sins seek Skyla's powers, powers she learns she has on the same night. These evil beings need her powers to survive and will kill anyone to get to her. Skyla moves to live with her grandparents. Here she meets new friends, and even more important, Alec Stone, a gorgeous guy she is immediately drawn to. But does he like her as much as she likes him? Skyla's new life heightens when she learns that the Deathstalkers are getting closer, teenagers in town are behaving strange, and a mysterious ghost keeps appearing. In addition, Skyla is changing. Will she survive her new found powers? Will she fulfill her destiny?
