The Last Vampire:A lot can change in 400 years – and still be a teenager…
Put into a deep sleep as a teenager, Victoria has no clue centuries have passed. That is, until she’s accidentally woken up by a father and daughter on a vacation.
Cars? Cell phones? What’s an Instagram? How can Craig and Alexis explain the world?
No one said educating a teenage vampire would be easy.
First they have to figure out how to get her back to the United States without anyone figuring out she’s not quite human. Public school should be interesting. Cheerleading tryouts, driving lessons, skilled fighter and fangs?
Time to pull some strings, get Vicki to the United States and start her education into modern life as a teenage vampire.
Join Vicki, Craig, and Alexis on a journey that will change their lives – in The Girl Behind the Wall.
“The parents placed their hands on the outside of the coffin, bowed their heads, and spoke a prayer together.
“Schützen Sie unsere Tochter in dieser schwierigen Zeit. Bewahre sie in einem ruhigen Schlaf auf, bis wir uns wieder vereinen können.”

The pounding resumed for a short time and finally stopped, replaced by the shuffling of cloth and the clack of boots and shoes on stone. The sounds faded slowly, followed by the groaning creak of an old door, and silence descended.
What is happening?
Victoria tried to move—to panic because that was what the situation seemed to demand. Yet even that was denied her as the potion she’d drunk did its work. Her heart rate slowed as she took comfort in the familiar folds of fabric. She was no stranger to this coffin and slept in it every night. But something was seriously wrong. Her parents clearly feared a danger. That much was obvious. Normally, any significant threat would cause her to twitch with anxious energy. Like her parents, she always sought to fix a problem and eliminate anything—or anyone—that threatened her.”
