Karen Armstrong's concise yet compelling investigation into the history of myth takes us from the Palaeolithic period and the mythology of the hunters right up to the 'Great Western Transformation' of the last 500 years.

Meet Frankie and her boyfriend Jackson, leaders of Warehouse Mews, the main digs of the bohemian post-wall-assembly children.

But the hand-outs of food from the vampire side of the wall have stopped, and suddenly, Warehouse Mews is left starving. Frankie is prepared to do anything to continue the survival of her people, including breaching the wall into vampire territory, but will she find an army to help her mission?

Harbouring a socially frowned upon lust for human blood over the synthetic, chemical stuff they're forcing the vamps to drink these days, Lucien will do anything to feel his dead heart beating with warmth in his chest.
But what will happen when fate throws Frankie and Lucien together? Will it be light or dark, alpha or omega, love or hate; and isn't it all kind of the same thing?
