From publisher blurb:
The world of Contagion is a dark and terrifying place. On the surface, it looks much like the world you and I live in. Just beneath that surface, in the shadows, rages an ancient conflict between supernatural factions who all seek dominion over the Earth and control over the souls of humanity.
While most humans go about their daily lives unaware of the conflicts that surround them, some few people learn the frightening truth that monsters are real. Faced with the horrors of the supernatural world, some go insane. Others turn to religion or the occult to try and find some means of defending themselves from things that go bump in the night.
Some arm themselves to fight back against the darkness.
