Read in January, 2007

In Cal's world, vampirism is caused by a sexually-transmitted parasite. A carrier of this parasite (or a parasite-positive "Peep"), Cal is gifted with superhuman eyesight and strength. Westerfield alternates between chapters about Cal's work for the Night Watch, which tracks cannibalistic vampires, and chapters about real parasites. Although the fictional chapters are designed to scare, it's the nonfiction chapters about real parasites that truly terrify.
