Ethics of the Undead
Four normal teens are conned into scholarships to a charter school for vampires. Can they escape before being bled and dead? Or sucked into the school's chapter of the Satanic Legion?
Sixteen year-old Kathy is on the kill list of a Shoshone vampire who teaches Ethics for Bloodsuckers. Her pal Lionel is terrorized by his music teacher, an 18th century violinist who worked as a Mafia hit man so he could play at his victims' funerals.
When Kathy's boyfriend has his heart broken by a sharpened pool cue, she and Lionel are put on trial for murder, in a vampire court, with a kidnapped gymnastics team as the jury. All the kids face the same three choices: escape, die trying, or join the undead.
