You have a character called Grubs? Make sure you aren’t copying Darren Shan too much!!

Possible Names…

Morgan-Ville - Just the town name is pretty cool. Or you could add Vampires to the end: Morgan-Ville Vampires

Or go with something with Blood or Wolf in the title, but that can be kinda cliche :\.

You seem to have a lot of influences… You are using character names from Darren Shan and there is a book called Glass Houses by Rachel Caine which is set in a place called Morganville. I would be careful you aren’t inadvertently using other people’s ideas.
