In modern New York City, Carlos hunts the evil undead--even though he's half-dead himself.

This appears to be an except from a novel.

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The world Carlos hunts in is very well described. Kia's African-American dialogue comes across as authentic. Karina's contingent of little kids are absolutely hilarious.

Con: The story just stops. There is no proper ending nor even a pretense of one. Even though it's not labeled as such, this is just an except from a larger work.
