Four years attending the Magician’s Keep, and Opal believes she’s nothing but a disaster and a disappointment.

As it turns out, her virgin blood works against her, its purity potent enough to send the bloodsuckers into a deadly and uncontrolled frenzy, and that’s not good for anyone. Problem is, with little friends, and a small amount of social skills, the quest for “The Sex” may be the most difficult job yet.
