A COMIC NOVELLA WITH BITE!

A newly minted college graduate with an entry level job at the Sonoran Mission Museum, Neal Sweet is quickly groomed for the position of curator at that historical landmark. A promotion that changes his world forever. Soon the responsibilities extend far beyond retelling colorful Old West tales to include eager minion for two beautiful vampire women living in the belfry. Not only does he learn of Lily and Jasmine in the mission tower, but that Titans and Angels exist. Though the latter two entities only live among us because their ride has left them stranded on this vacation hotspot, planet Earth, for more than two thousand years.
Neal's very human roommates Vlad and Rodney, who own and operate a velvet painting gallery, and their sexagenarian landlords Mae and June, who grow the most potent cannabis in the Valley of the Sun, bake a lot of flavor into the 'Belles' recipe.
Stir into the mix of salty characters a trio of misfit vampire hunters: plus some curious patrons at the Stagger Inn bar and the day to day is anything but routine. Spice up the plot with a rumored concoction that allows vampires to bask in warm sunshine and things get wicked crazy!

Before I read the book I thought that this is one of those books that I will read one page and return it to the library but as I read the first page it got stuck to the book. The book was kind of a short chapter book but it was worth it because the book was talking about the a teenagers secret life and how blossom has powers and I kind of think that almost all kids like super power books.
