New York City, 1919. Occultist Aleister Crowley is holding a soirée, a group of followers gathered to witness the consecration of his mistress, Leah. Non-believers beware!
In Necropolis City, Requiem, Rebecca and Otto continue to slog it out, using Otto's prize collection of exquisite antique weaponry: medieval shield with sword blade, holy water sprinkler and volley gun, crossbow with wheel-lock firearm...and a piano gun?!
What about the red snow plague? General Salem's troops repel the bubonic-infected zombies storming Vlad Bridge, just as the killer rats stop laughing - and their boils erupt...
Requiem is also internally battling Thurim, who's very keen to take over his body and rejoin Necropolis as a non-living member of vampire society. As Thurim gains supremacy, his enormous libido lands him in a very compromising position with the Ape of Thoth. It gets ugly and, uh, hairy.
