Publisher's summary[edit | edit source]
"You drank from me, vampire. Shurafa draws closer because of you."
Barnabas Collins is a desperate man.
In Cairo's great cemetery, the City of the Dead, an ancient tyrant is plotting his return from the grave, and Barnabas has been chosen to assist in his rebirth.
When the city begins to burn, Barnabas is coerced into assisting his escape by murdering a young girl. But the reluctant vampire faces resistance from his conscience: a brilliant scientist by the name of Julia Hoffman.
Faced with a difficult choice, Barnabas finds that whatever path he takes could result in the loss of his closest friend.
Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Night falls over the great house of Collinwood. The encroaching darkness wrapping the ancient stones in it's lingering, unwelcome embrace. On this night, the vampire Barnabas Collins will reveal a painful secret. A secret from a past that haunts him still. And tonight, Harry Cunningham will find himself caught up in a tale that began in a far off land. A land as strange and alien to him as the present day is to his host.
