Laura Caxton vowed never to face them again. The horror of what the vampires did is too close, the wounds too fresh. But when Jameson Arkeley, broken and barely recognizable, comes to her with an unfathomable, unholy discovery, her resolve crumbles. Arkeley leads Caxton to a tomb in Gettysburg recently excavated by a local archaeology professor. While the town, with its legendary role in the Civil War’s worst battle, is no stranger to cemeteries, this one is different. In it lie 100 coffins—99 of them occupied by vampires, who, luckily, are missing their hearts, and the last one left empty. How did the vampires end up there, undisturbed and undiscovered for 150 years? Who is the missing vampire? And does he have access to the 99 hearts, which, if placed back in their owners’ bodies, could reanimate an entire bloodthirsty army of the undead?
