Dark Talents is a 2-in-1 package of Night Runner and End of Days by Max Turner—a fast-paced, exciting addition to the vampire genre

Night Runner: For Zack Thomson, the bizarre is commonplace. Living in a mental ward and surrounded by a host of strange characters, including Charlie, his wild and irrepressible best friend, and the beautiful but mysterious nurse Ophelia, Zack struggles to cope with an unusual illness that baffles all the local doctors. Then one night, an eccentric old man crashes a stolen police motorcycle through the front doors of the lobby to rescue Zack from an ancient and wicked evil. Zack soon finds himself thrust into an unfamiliar world of car chases, police hunts, teenage mayhem, girls, and murder. After stumbling from one disaster to another, Zack must confront a killer and come to terms with the truth about himself, his illness, and the likelihood of finding love after death.
 
End Of Days: A year after the conclusion of Night Runner, Zack Thomson is still learning to cope with the changes in his new life. As he and his best friend, Charlie, try to establish a normal routine for themselves, a mysterious creature appears. Likened to the Beast of the Apocalypse, it begins to dismantle the network of support around Zack, who discovers he is more than just a struggling orphan—he is the subject of an ancient prophecy that relates to the End of Days. As friends and enemies, old and new, throw his world into chaos, he is forced to reexamine what it means to be good at a time when it seems that only the strong and ruthless can survive and find a way forward.
