Fran has always wanted a "normal" life, but when your mom is a witch, that's just not going to happen. Especially if said witch has dragged you out of school for the year and has you traveling Europe with her-- her and the GothFaire, that is. By the way, a GothFaire is a traveling group of witches, magicians, psychics, and other what are commonly refered to as weirdos. But when Benedikt joins GothFaire, Fran thinks things might be looking up, because he is completely hot. Hot enough to overlook the fact that he is a vampire, and she is supposed to redeem his soul. Despite all that, it's nice to have someone not think she's a freak, for a change, even if she is the most normal one with the Faire. And his kissing isn't half-bad either. Katie Maxwell employs her usual humor to something not usually thought of as humorous: vampires, and the result is magical.
