Edgewich, England - 1873. After the body of a young girl is found in the woods near her home, and with the majority of the search party sent to find her now missing, the Mayor of the small town sends for a 'Vampire Hunter'.
He was the best there had ever been. But he had not been out on a hunt for three years, not since the death of the woman he loved, Mary. He was told that this was a simple investigation - find out if vampires were responsible for the girl's death, and if so, deal with them. The investigation was simple, too simple.
He found that it was just a small piece to the fulfillment of a 2000 year old prophecy in which his part was vital. Now, not knowing who he can trust, including his own ability, not only to destroy the vampires, but also to love the young woman he finds himself becoming attracted to. He must race to London to stop the vampires from having the power to walk in the sunlight and enslave the human race. He must stop the Feast of Dran Val Karlic - the Ritual of Blood.
