When the old world meets the modern world, vampires battle for the right to exist.
Enter a world where vampires look just like you and me. Imagine them preying on the sick, the homeless; the unwanted.

She made no resistance as he lowered her to the concrete and only a grateful sigh escaped when he put his lips to her neck and gently, but hungrily, sucked her life away.
