Dayblack by Keef Cross
Beneath the polluted clouds of DayBlack, Georgia, a man exists. After hundreds of years of killing to survive, he no longer wants to simply exist…he wants to live. DayBlack is the story of Merce, a former slave who was bitten by a vampire in the cotton fields. Four hundred years later, he works as a tattoo artist in the small town of DayBlack. The town has a sky so dense with pollution that the sun is nowhere to be seen, allowing Merce to move about freely, night or day.
Even darker than the clouds are the dreams he’s been having that are causing him to fall asleep at the awkwardest times (even while he’s tattooing someone). As he struggles to decipher his dreams, someone from his past returns with plans for him—plans that will threaten his new way of life and turn him back into the cold-hearted killer he once was.
