When Tobias Richard Vandevelde wakes up in hospital with no memory of the night before, his horrified mother tells him that he was found unconscious. At Featherdale wildlife Park. In a dingo pen. He assumes that his two rambunctious best friends are somehow responsible, until he discovers that they’re just as freaked out as he is. Then the mysterious Reuben turns up, claiming that Toby has a rare and dangerous ‘condition’. Next thing he knows, Toby finds himself involved with a strange bunch of sickly insomniacs who seem convinced that he needs their help. It’s not until he’s kidnapped and imprisoned that he starts to believe them – and to uinderstand what being a paranormal monster really means.

‘The satire isnt all thats biting in this darkly comedic sequel to The Reformed Vampire Support Group.’
‘Perfect disposable entertainment, pacy, silly and fun . . .’
‘An exciting, fast-paced thriller, this book will more than satisfy its readers . . . Life-threatening incidents are piled one on top of the other, keeping the reader glued to the page . . . The vampire/werewolf stories covering the shelves in bookshops are weak tea indeed compared with the strength of Jinks’ horror story which is original, funny and luminous.’
‘I found the book to be an exciting read as I did not want to put it down.’
