What happens when a vampire gets baptized?
After 125 years of vampirism, Jeffrey Lapin wants to end his life of torment. A failed suicide attempt puts him in touch with police officer Maddy, an Orthodox Christian whose helping hand burns Jeffrey’s skin. He finally lights on the solution to his problem: he will convert to Orthodoxy and say goodbye to the world in a blaze of smoke when he gets baptized. Unfortunately for his plan, Jeffrey is so focused on dying that he fails to grasp the important first part of baptism: the exorcism. Parted forever from the demon that bound him for so long, Jeffrey has to learn to live as a Christian, free from the demon but not his own bad habits. Can his godfather, his priest, and his friend Maddy help Jeffrey accept the grace that has been given to him to be transformed and find true eternal life?

Fans of The Screwtape Letters and The Sayings of the Desert Fathers will resonate with this story of spiritual warfare informed by ancient Christian customs.
