Sunglasses After Dark by award-winning author Nancy A. Collins
tells the story of a punk female vampire/vampire hunter searching for
the man responsible for the man who turned her into one of the undead.
On a spring night in London, American heiress DeniseThorne disappears from a nightclub, never to be seen again. On that very same night Sonja Blue, a tough-as-nails punk vampire/vampire-slayer, conceived in terror and blood, is born from the city's gutters. Saved by modern medicine before she could die and complete her transformation into one of the undead, she is now a living vampire, determined to fight for what remains of her humanity.
Sonja Blue travels the globe, hunting down and disposing of those creatures of the shadows that prey on the innocent, all the while searching for the vampire who created her. But as dangerous as hunting vampires may be, it's nothing compared to the threat posed by The Other, the demonic personality with whom Sonja is locked in constant battle for control of their shared body. In the end, can Sonja Blue overcome her very real inner demon in time to rescue an innocent man from the unholy clutches of a psychic faith healer?
