This is a story about Mary, number one fan of the hottest cult vampire detective TV show, City By Night.… until it becomes all too real.
An accident with the Craft Services truck sends her hurtling into the world of the show, and Mary is thrilled – who wouldn’t want to live alongside their favorite TV characters? Unfortunately, living in TV-land isn’t all that Mary thought it would be. The charm fades when Mary realizes that the extras still don’t speak, the matte paintings don’t become real, and all the infuriating flaws in the writing are just amplified when you have to try to interact with the shallow characters.
And then, of course, the lead character Leondre DuNoir falls for her!
Sure, fine, he’s hot… but he’s also a bit, well, flat. And his admiration comes with its own set of problems: Antonio, Leondre’s psychotic stalker, has a habit of killing off the girls-of-the-week. Mary is disillusioned with what she thought was a lush world until she had to try to manoeuvre in it, and now she’s about to be murdered by one of the stupidest clichés in the history of television. Her only hope is to find a way home from a world that, pardon the pun, totally sucks.
