When a talented new player joins the perennially-losing sub-minor-league
hockey team, the Fighting Aardvarks, it marks the beginning of a
winning tradition. But things aren't as they seem, and players begin to
change. First line center Hammie learns the truth: the Aardvarks are
becoming vampires, and it's up to him to stop them before the
infestation spreads beyond just the team.
"Healy’s snickering, boyish humor is a highlight of this novel—from the characters’ postmodern comments on vampiric pop culture to the hockey teammates’ constant good-natured trash talking to the wry snarkiness of the “narrator” (a lovely twist as to the identity of the narrator I won’t spoil for you, but wait for the delightful punchline) pull us through this story with tight action and a keen series of cliffhanger chapter endings."--Jenn Zuko, Nerds in Babeland
