The continuing saga of Charley, catholic Priest turned homosexual vampire! He is sent on the Vatican's dirty work once more with maker and vampire playboy Johnny Rayflo. The two take an airplane ride anddiscover a surprise. There is a young woman on board and the three of them end up jumping out of the plane at high altitude. Johnny shares his blood with the mystery woman which makes Charley very jealous! As the plot begins to unfold, it turns out the girl is an actress who has recently been turned into a vampire. It looks like someone is selling people the secrets of vampirism and it is connected to a mysterious "Vassalord".
We also learn more about Arnold Paole, the ancestor of Cheryl. He was taken by a vampire but refused to become his slave. Later he was killed but the story says he did end up becomming a vampire himself. We also follow the side story of young crippled boy Harold Wayne. It seems like his family have tried to kidnap him and the boys want to find out why.
The action is thick and fast and it is slightly less confusing than the first installment. I am interested to read more and am finding I have a soft spot for Charley and Johnny and their devious ways!
