Arkeley leads Caxton to a tomb in Gettysburg lately excavated via a neighborhood archaeology professor. whereas town, with its mythical position within the Civil War’s worst conflict, is not any stranger to cemeteries, this one is remarkably, eerily varied. In it lie a hundred coffins—99 of them occupied by means of vampires, who, fortunately, are lacking their hearts. yet one of many coffins is empty and smashed to items.
Who is the lacking vampire? Does he have entry to the ninety nine hearts that, if put again within the our bodies in their proprietors, might reanimate a whole bloodthirsty military? How did the vampires turn out there, undisturbed and undiscovered for one hundred fifty years? the reply lies in Civil warfare files that include sinister secrets and techniques concerning the newly stumbled on coffins—secrets that Laura Caxton is set to discover as she is thrown right into a lethal, ugly challenge of saving a complete city from a mass invasion of the undead. . . .
