The final battle.
The Vampire Family have swollen their ranks.
Manhattan is nearly theirs.
The cops have been transformed into a willing army of bloodthirsty footsoldiers.
In the garden, the trees hang heavy with living victims, unwilling sacrifices, waiting to shed their life-blood onto the ancient and evil roots that feed The Old One–The First Vampire–The Bloodfather. Former gang boss Eddie Falco–no longer the man he once was — in fact, no longer a man at all — must lead his rag-tag army of reluctant heroes up against the might of their supernatural enemies. But can Eddie trust that when the chips are down, his uneasy alliance between Samual Kane and his Uptown Racketeers, the half-human/half-vampire Dragonmir brothers and Squeed, the alien with a powerful secret locked onboard his ship–will hold fast? Where will their loyalties lie in the final battle? It ain’t over ’til it’s over–pulse-pounding blood-thirsty action from start to finish!
