Peeps

Peeps - Scott Westerfeld This is an interesting take on the vampire legend. In this book, they call "vampires" peeps. They are not supernatural beings, but rather people infected with a parasite that causes cannibalism. The main character, Cal is a carrier but not infected himself. He works for a centuries old group called the Night Watch that tries to keep the vampires in check. He is trying to track down the people he has infected. But things are not exactly as they seem. He finds some peeps that display unusual behavior and some strange cats and then things really get weird. No one believes what he has seen and he doesn't know who to trust. Apparently, "something is coming", but what??
This was a quick read. A little creepy and fun.
