From the Back of the Book:
Gothic Horror in the Domain of Dread
Within the darkness, terror reigns. Vampires rule the night. Shapeshifters howl beneath the gibbous moon. Ancient evil and new-made ghosts and ghouls prey upon a populace ruled by fear. Yet within the darkness glows a light--a few brave souls who stand against the evil. Have you the courage to join their struggle?
