Synopsis from Goodreads:
"A mesmerizing blend of vampire thriller and coming-of-age story -- now available as a graphic novel."

Newcomers to the Otter Lake native reserve don't go unnoticed for long. So it's no surprise that 16-year-old Tiffany's curiosity is piqued when her father rents out her room to a complete stranger.

But little do Tiffany, her father, or even her insightful Granny Ruth suspect the truth about their guest. The mysterious Pierre L'Errant has a dreadful secret. After centuries roaming Europe as a brooding vampire, he has returned home to reclaim his Native roots before facing the rising sun and certain death. Meanwhile, Tiffany is deeply troubled -- she doubts her boyfriend is being faithful, has escalating disputes with her father, and her estranged mother is starting a new life with somebody else.

Fed up and heartsick, Tiffany threatens drastic measures and flees into the bush. There, in the midnight woods, a chilling encounter with L'Errant changes everything as Pierre introduces Tiffany to her proud Native heritage. For Pierre, though, destiny is fixed at sunrise.

In this stunning graphic version of the award-winning novel, artist Mike Wyatt brings a brilliant story to visual life.
My Rating: ★★★★.5

My Thoughts:
I had to give this a 4.5 stars because I just wish there was more to it.

This graphic novel follows Pierre L’Errant a vampire who returns home after hundreds of years. His people lived as Native Americans off the land. He is on a fast during his journey. His goal: the ultimate death. While returning to him to his home he stays with a family and ends up helping them out with their daughter in a strange way.

Tiffany is the young Lady Pierre's helps to realize that life does not revolve solely around her. She lives with her father and grandmother because her mother left them and ended up with a white man. Due to the things her mother did, her father seems to be very protective and demanding of her. Especially with her boyfriend Tony -- who is white.

In the end, Tiffany gets overwhelmed with everything and decides to run away. Pierre goes after her and teaches her that family counts in the end and its never too late to show it.

Pretty cool read and the artwork was pretty cool as well.
