The fugitive romance continues between Karina, a day-walking vampire, and Nick, a nocturnal mortal.
Living out their storybook fantasy in Paris by day and hunting down criminals by night to feed Karina’s hunger, Nick's moral line continues to be pushed to the limit.
When Karina discovers her latest prey holds a dark criminal secret, it will put their immortal love-pact to the test when they attempt to rescue an innocent girl from a deadly underworld plot. Told by Karina in poetic verse, we are taken on a-day-in-the-life of a forbidden love that goes from romance to horror to pulp-crime thriller—best read at bedtime!
This hardcover graphic novella is rendered with crisp line art and lush digital watercolor, and also contains a new GirlFIEND pin-up gallery.
