Alice Dibble is about to finish primary school and wants to attend the Nocturnal Academy, located near her home. She has no idea that it is actually a school for supernatural youngsters until she is accepted and attends a meeting with the principal, Madam Elliana Nocturna. At enrolment she finds out that she is a vampire – and her worst enemy, Toby Thompson, is a werewolf!
The Nocturnal Academy trains young vampires, werewolves, shapeshifters, tree-spirits and elementals to fight threats from the Immaterium, a dimension of evil spirits who want to escape and take over the world during the night-time hours. It has been around for hundreds of years, and the principal is herself a vampire who has been in charge for over a century. Other teachers include the werewolf Professor Longenfang, and Professor Icarus Abbacus, a cyborg in charge of Immaterial Geography and Demon Lore.
Now Alice can’t wait to start high school. But before she can join the illustrious academy, she must come to terms with her new identity as a vampire, defeat Toby’s old bully friends who have discovered the truth about her, and expose a coven that wants to raise the powerful Immaterial Demon lord Vladrakov! Luckily Toby realises how bad his old mates are and reaches into his own werewolf heritage to help Alice. She also receives support from vampires at the school, and the spooky Professor Abbacus, who keeps an open portal to the Immaterium in his office!
