Kia is seventeen and has just moved to New York City to live with her father while her mother is in the hospital dying of cancer. Kia cuts herself to avoid dealing with her emotional pain, and while she is ashamed of her behavior, she feels that can’t confide in anyone and she doesn’t know how to stop cutting. When she meets Hecate in the hospital, the two girls become immediate friends, and Hecate introduces Kia to the underground goth club scene. It is here -- where the drink of choice is “bloodbath” and where she meets the strikingly beautiful Damon -- that Kia begins to feel accepted. Strange occurrences make Kia question whether or not the world of vampires is real.
