Julian Harrow’s parents were adventurers. There were television programs and dozens of bestselling books that chronicled their treks to the ends of the Earth to find out if myths of magic, gods, and monsters were real. While wealth and fame were theirs, respect from the scholarly community escaped the Harrows.
Their last quest was not one that they shared with the public. For they believed they had found a way into a place called Ever Dark, the Vampire world that exists beside humanity’s. They had discovered one of Ever Dark’s cities that could be accessed by humans. This city of pale stone seemed to have been forgotten and abandoned.
Knowing that they would face only ridicule if they revealed the existence of Vampires to the world without absolute proof, Julian’s parents went in secret to this seemingly lost Vampire city. They did not even tell their twelve-year-old son exactly where they were going. They said they would come back with proof that Vampires existed.
