Chasing the Sun
Pantera Press $24.99
Blood-sucking Honda and his vampire friends frequent nightclubs, searching for victims to satisfy their thirst for fresh blood, and their need for variety in their diet gives new meaning to "having Italian or Mexican" for dinner.
Their anonymity is threatened by a mysterious group, Rising Sun, which targets vampires with a new drug that makes them vulnerable.
Honda, through his friendship with Rain and her daughter Dip, gains redemption while facing his imminent mortality.
Robin Baker's penetrating insight into a dark world where death is never far away transcends the revulsion of blood-feasting orgies to elicit sympathy for a race facing extermination.
