Title: Valerie and Her Week of Wonders A thief awakens Valerie, just 13, taking earrings left to her by her mother. By morning, the earrings have been returned, Valerie's first period has begun, and a troupe and a missionary have arrived in her 19th century town. The thief is Orick; he reports to a cloaked constable who may also be the missionary. Attention to sexuality is everywhere: Valerie's grandmother's puritanical nature, the missionary's sermon to the town's virgins, the parish priest's attempt to seduce Valerie, and lusty adults at play.
A murderer stalks the Gateway City. The Central West End Ripper is a Keeper vampire who believes he alone is at the top of the food chain. He slashes his victims to mask his real obsession: drinking blood from humans. His murderous rampage not only threatens the lives of young women, but could also expose a secret community of Freeblood vampires. Freeblood vampire Theodore Falcon is determined to stop the Ripper and keep his community intact. Unlike his ancestors, Falcon obtains his nourishment from a blood bank.
