“You drank from me, vampire. Shurafa draws closer because of you.”
Barnabas Collins is a desperate man.
In Cairo’s great cemetery, the City of the Dead, an ancient tyrant is plotting his return from the grave, and Barnabas has been chosen to assist in his rebirth.
When the city begins to burn, Barnabas is coerced into assisting his escape by murdering a young girl. But the reluctant vampire faces resistance from his conscience: a brilliant scientist by the name of Julia Hoffman.
Faced with a difficult choice, Barnabas finds that whatever path he takes could result in the loss of his closest friend.
