Yen Press licensed the novel and describes the story:
The silent vampire Terakomari, or Komari for short, awakens from her slumber to find she has been promoted to a military commander! The problem, however, is that her new team has a reputation for being violently insubordinate. And even though Komari was born into a prestigious vampire family, her hatred of flesh and blood made her the image of mediocrity—scrawny, uncoordinated, and not good at magic. With the odds mounting, will the help of her trusty maid be enough to make this recluse stumble on her path to success?
