A sleepy native reservation. A troubled teen girl. A vampire returns home.
Nothing ever happens on the Otter Lake reservation. But when 16-year-old Tiffany discovers her father is renting outher room, she's deeply upset. Sure, their guest is polite and keeps to himself. But he's also a little creepy.
Little do Tiffany, her father or even her astute Granny Ruth suspect the truth. The mysterious Pierre L'Errant is actually a vampire, returning to his tribal home after centuries spent in Europe. But Tiffany has other things on her mind: her new boyfriend is acting weird, disputes with her father are escalating, and her estranged mother is starting a new life with somebody else.
Fed up and heartsick, Tiffany threatens drastic measures and flees into the bush. There, in the midnight woods, a chilling encounter with L'Errant changes everything... for both of them.
A mesmerizing blend of Gothic thriller and modern coming-of-age novel, The Night Wanderer is unlike any other vampire story.
