The Fell of Dark (Hardcover)
August Pfeiffer is a queer teenager living in the vampire-ridden town of Fulton Heights, and, up until recently, his biggest threat was an upcoming algebra quiz. However, he soon discovers that he is at the epicenter of a centuries-old curse, caught between four clans all vying for his trust. Oh, and top of that, everyone he cares about may or may not be trying to kill him.
Packed with adventure, unexpected twists, and lots of sarcasm, The Fell of Dark is a thrilling and unexpected take on vampires that’s bound to keep readers hooked up until the very end. Despite the abundance of supernatural activity, Roehrig crafts a protagonist that many teenagers would see themselves reflected in as he grapples with his new reality. In this fast-paced novel, the author manages to shed light on prominent issues that still plague our world today, all while maintaining an irreverent sense of humor.— Veronica P.
What's a boy to do—in Caleb Roehrig's YA paranormal romance The Fell of Dark—when his crush is a hot vampire with a mystery to solve?
The only thing August Pfeiffer hates more than algebra is living in a vampire town.
Located at a nexus of mystical energy fields, Fulton Heights is practically an electromagnet for supernatural drama. And when a mysterious (and annoyingly hot) vampire boy arrives with a cryptic warning, Auggie suddenly finds himself at the center of it.
An ancient and terrible power is returning to the earthly realm, and somehow Auggie seems to be the only one who can stop it.

"Fulton Heights, Illinois. It's just a little too far from Chicago to be fun, and a little too close to a nexus of magical energy to be boring—making it a known hotspot for vampires.... A little bit M. T. Anderson's Thirsty, a little bit Buffy, this is a vampire story for a new generation of teens entering a world that they have no reason to be optimistic about."-- Booklist, starred review
