"Rolfe is the real deal, folks, and anything he writes is well worth checking out." - Gord Rollo, author of The Jigsaw Man and The Crucifixion Experiments

When fifteen year old Rocky Zukas meets a mysterious dark-haired girl named November, his world is forever changed. The young couple falls under the spell of summer love, but not everyone approves. November's brother, Gabriel, is the keeper of the family's secret, and big brother is always watching, growing more sinister as his bloodlust gets the best of him. Directing his attention to Rocky's family, Gabriel aims to make sure little sister knows who is in charge.

Review quote

"A family of vampires terrorizes a seaside town in Rolfe's lurid tale of adolescent romance and murder." "It is a stimulating, gripping and chilling horror tale and I devoured it in three days." 'Glenn has easily become my favourite author and I hold no bars when I say he is the best dark fiction writer right now' [...] if Lost Boys, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the Kristy Swanson flick), and Stranger Things had a fangy baby and put on paper, it might be this book-and that's some high praise. "Throw in the coming-of-age angle, with all of the promise of a first true love, and Rolfe has delivered a horror novel with heart, soul, and bite." "There's no denying that Rolfe's writing here is the best it's ever been. I'd recommend this to anybody." -- Steel Rain Reviews "This 80's throwback coming-of-age story will certainly satisfy your thirst for a grisly vampire tale." -- The Book Dad "Until Summer Comes Around is going to be the perfect summer read!" -- Kendall Reviews
