The Curse Box by E.E. Richardson

Interest age teen. Reading age 8+. Tony works in a magic shop - a real one. He must use all his magical know-how to stop a new war from flaring between rival vampire gangs. Both sides would need more troops, and they'd have to kill hundreds of people to create new vampires. But is it enough? Scary, funny urban fantasy from the author of the fantastic Black Bones.

Particularly suitable for reluctant, struggling and dyslexic teen readers.
