Morning McCobb is a sixteen-year-old boy who was accidentally turned into a vampire. He has never tasted human blood, however, and prefers a protein substitute called Blood Lite. After he completes his training, he is approached by the leader of the Vampire League and asks him to become the first vampire to “come out” to the world. If Morning is met with acceptance and understanding then the League hopes to have a “coming out day” in the future where all vampires can live peacefully with humans. The only problem is that there are a few vampires who refuse to join the league called Loners. These Loners still prey on humans. One loner in particular does not like the idea of vampires coming out into society and vows to destroy Morning before that can become a reality.
This story is a fun, lighthearted vampire story that takes a different approach from many other vampire stories. Morning is a nerdy kid who does not want to have to relive high school over and over simply because he will always look sixteen. He sees this as an opportunity to do something with his life and make a difference, which would never happen if he had to hide his true identity. He quickly learns that it is not easy to be in the spotlight and all vampires can be dangerous at one time or another, even the ones who have never been a threat to humans before. For vampire lovers, this is a fun story that does not have some of the violence and darkness that some other vampire stories have.
