Resurrection In Vampire Valley is the long-awaited second volume in the popular Vampire Valley series. It begins where The Hostage of Vampire Valley left off, with Maggie's lover Mabin still dead but about to be exhumed by her little brother Tommy after a year of healing resurrection in the grave. Oddly, black blood begins seeping out of the mountain where Mabin is buried, and when Maggie appears to be teetering on the brink of madness, Tommy decides to take action. The black blood has no intention of allowing the boy to rob Mabin's grave of its victim, and instead inflicts on Tommy a horrible condition that has to be rectified with a terrible ritual by his step-parents, Stephanovich and Elsa. Aghast that Tommy is unable to perform his duty of the resurrection of Mabin, Maggie follows her lover into his strange and magical world, where she, too, must undergo resurrection and rebirth, despite the fact that Mabin is only half alive. While these rituals are performed inside the mountain, the black blood is polluting the world outside it and drawing the entire town back into the vampire's nest. Elsa and Stephanovich must deal with the hundreds of resurrected vampires of the Montana town before they can save Maggie, Mabin and Tommy, but they make the attempt to save their children with a ferocity that can be born only of love.
