Item description for Wasting the Dawn by David Hurwitz...
Every child seeks to surpass their parents - it's only natural. Unfortunately for Randall Springfield and his 'brother,' their 'mother' is not yet ready to let that happen... and vampires are anything but natural. Centuries have passed since Lisel turned Randall Springfield. While Lisel herself was turned long ago, she has no intention of stepping aside and allowing her children their right of maturity. Instead, she strikes out at them, ultimately forcing Randall to take matters into his own hands. Accompanied by his human companion, Rose, and brother Knox and Swan, Randall sets out on a mission to destroy his maker... a mission that will take them from California to London and back.

A Great New Take on the Vampire Novel Feb 25, 2007
This book takes a unique slant on vampire fiction. It has a former U.S. President as one of the characters, and the action ranges all up and down California, even venturing into Disneyland (pre-California Adventure) and the Pirates of the Caribbean ride (pre-Johnny Depp). What more could you ask for?
Interesting Take On The Vampire/Werewolf Genre Feb 8, 2007
If you're a fan of character driven stories this is a tale for you. Rather than focusing on rehashing one of the handful of plots used in vampire fiction this story finds its originality and strength in its unusual yet very real characters.
