Archaeologist and vampire slayer, Dr. Abraham Stroud faces the greatest challenge of his career — A battle in what appears an unending war fought on the astral plane against an enemy of ancient origin. The Evil Order of the Vadocq, an evil stretching across time and dimension, is a foe beyond vampires, werewolves, zombies, and giant lampreys.
These new enemies are mind assassins making monsters of men. In the end, no ugly killing act is at all random but premeditated by the Vadocq, who have vowed to vanquish the Strouds and other key family lines.
