When the comet Wormwood slammed into the Wyoming Territory in the summer of 1864, it caused the eruption of the world’s largest super volcano, an explosion so powerful it was felt as far away as Europe. The sky was filled with enough ash and debris to blot out the sun for generations. Pieces of the comet, a strange new, always burning element known as Devil Rock, showered the earth, effectively ending the United State’s Civil War and bringing about what came to be known as the Endless Night.
But the dark and cold of the Endless Night were the least of man’s problems. Ancient vampires, finally free of the killing sunlight, spread out like a plague, enveloping the globe in a wave of blood. Man was forced to flee the land, heading out to sea and into the air. Using the shattered comet remains, Devil Rock powered cities filled the skies above the bank of dark clouds swirling around the planet and life, as it tends to do, went on.
Ten years later, life is hard for Dylan Murdock in the air city of New Richmond. He is the son of an accused traitor and is reviled among the residents of the air city. Armed with a Devil Rock pistol and his father’s broken cutlass, he lives in the shadows of the Lowers, the bottom most portion of the New Richmond, hiding from the Home Guard and the terrifying, Devil Rock powered clockwork Troopers. He gets by on what he can beg, borrow, or steal, but knows that however tough life is in the air cities, its better than the dark, monster filled surface, down below the black clouds.
But when Dylan meets a mysterious girl in the Lowers, fleeing from the Home Guard, his life is turned upside down. On the run, with the girl, he soon learns the terrifying truth.
The vampires are not only coming to the air cities, they have help among those who rule the sky.
