Saltwater Vampires

Kirsty Eagar

For fifteen-year-old Jamie Mackie, summer holidays in the coastal village of Rocky Head mean surfing, making money, and good times at the local music festival. But there are a few strange and unsettling events that make this year different from most. It starts with a savage and unprovoked attack in the surf one night. Then, as the town gears up for a New Year’s Eve concert, there is something about the festival goers that seems decidedly…sinister. At the music festival, a new drink called Juice has everybody else acting strangely. People sleep all day, party all night and have developed a taste for raw meat. Helped by Talia, Kelly and Willem, Rocky Head’s resident metal head/genius, Jamie and Tanner uncover the truth, and discover romantic complications are the least of their worries. Curious forces have come to town and are fulfilling a pact that was begun on the wreck of the Batavia, 400 years ago. Turns out a band of ancient vampires are on the festival line-up, and if their plans succeed, nobody in Rocky Head will survive to see out the new year.
