Deep in the forest and miles from civilization, a castle sits high atop a mountain – Casillero de la Sombra. Within, the Antonov Clan of vampires spend their days avoiding the sunlight and their nights hunting humans and drinking their blood. While vicious, they and all other vampires follow the “code” set out by the vampire royal family in Romania. An accordance with the code, the Antonov Clan has extended hospitality to many travelers in need of refuge from the sunlight. But when the leader of the clan, Frederik Antonov, is found staked in his coffin in the early daylight hours, traveling vampires and clan members alike become suspects in his murder. Who would stake an immortal? Why? Not everyone is who they seem to be in this classically gothic vampire murder mystery investigation!
