Vampire hunts rage across the United States like the witch hunts of old. But in the shadows, rumors whisper of a grand escape plan. "Mina Tepes summons all the vampires of America," it says. "Reach the West Coast, and a ship will take you all to the Vampire Bund." Desperate to survive, hordes of vampires follow that rumor and make for the West Coast. There's only one small problem -- the Vampire Bund sunk months ago, and Vampire Queen Mina Tepes is dead.
