Sire & Childe #1: Embrace – Eileen Glass

Sam wakes up to find himself the captive of vampire hunters. Having no memory, he’s confused about why they insist he’s not human. Admittedly, he’s not quite himself. His hearing is a little better, and he can’t help reacting strangely to certain scents, but he attributes this to his hazy, drugged state.

His captors disagree. They call themselves the Clan, and they tell him he’s the youngest they’ve ever seen, a newborn only days old. Supposedly, he’s so precious that the vampires will start a war just to get him back.

If someone’s trying to rescue him, that’s good news, but Sam doesn’t believe in vampires. Even if they are real…what would such creatures want with an ordinary college kid like him?
