Samantha is 15 years old, and taking a shortcut through the park on her way home from work when she is attacked by three young men with the intention to rape and kill her. As she begins to panic she feels a strange thing happening to her - black scaly skin begins to cover her from top to toe, and her fingernails become long sharp talons. Taking her revenge on the three men; she brutally kills them and the black skin absorbs their blood.

Unfortunately this is where the story ends! In all it was on

I really have nothing interesting to say about this book, in all honesty. I wasn't that impressed with it, and it was much like the removal of a band-aid, if you do it quickly it is less painful.

Short read and dark. Left me wanting to know more- what is she that she turns into at night? A hybrid type vampire that hunts the evil of the night? will have to read more...
Warning: Disturbing content!
Wow, it is messed-up, scary but wonderful at the same time. I love the style the writer used - no heavy thoughts, easy and quick paced.

Not my cup of tea. A little too Freudian. heroine not fully developed. Story would likely appeal to teen readers.

Heads up, it's a short story and to be based on a 15 yr old it needs to be rated R, but intense read
