All sixteen-year-old Alec Somers wants to do is catch waves with his friends. Unfortunately for him, his father's job is taking the family from California to Louisiana-a swampland rumored to be rampant with wiccans, vampires, and swamp creatures called wookies. As he bids farewell to his friends, Alec cannot help but wonder if the legends are really true. Already haunted nightly by vivid nightmares that seem to foretell of danger, Alec is about to find out.
Strange things begin happening as soon as Alec arrives in the airport and is greeted by a creepy old man who warns him to beware of the wookies. Despite the foreboding feelings that overwhelm him, Alec starts school with a positive attitude. But after he meets Buba, a quiet teenager who others call a wiccan, Alex's nightmares become more intense as he unintentionally begins to uncover the dark secrets of the swamplands. As he slowly develops an insatiable thirst for blood, Alec soon realizes it is too late to turn back.
In this tale full of suspenseful twists and turns, a teenage boy caught in the middle of an ancient battle between vampires and wookies must somehow summon the courage to stop an evil plan before vampires are wiped out from existence forever.
