Laura Caxton vowed by no means to stand them back. The horror of what the vampires did is simply too shut, the injuries too clean. but if Jameson Arkeley, damaged and infrequently recognizable, involves her with an unfathomable, unholy discovery, her unravel crumbles.
Arkeley leads Caxton to a tomb in Gettysburg lately excavated by way of a neighborhood archaeology professor. whereas town, with its mythical position within the Civil War's worst conflict, isn't any stranger to cemeteries, this one is remarkably, eerily diverse. In it lie a hundred coffins -- ninety nine of them occupied through vampires, who, fortunately, are lacking their hearts. yet one of many coffins is empty and smashed to items.
who's the lacking vampire? Does he have entry to the ninety nine hearts that, if positioned again within the our bodies in their vendors, might reanimate a complete bloodthirsty military? How did the vampires turn out there, undisturbed and undiscovered for a hundred and fifty years? the reply lies in Civil battle files that comprise 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, grotesque venture of saving a whole city from a mass invasion of the undead. . . .
