In a world, where vampires took over a weather-controlling device, people were reduced to small groups of resistance that hide and try fighting for their survival. They’re becoming desperate. Hiding in caves, away from the sun is slowly killing them. The only way to win is to kill the vampire prince and try to take over the Weather Wizard.
Myra’s mission is simple – ambush and kill the vampire leader. She volunteers for the task to prove she can be useful and strong. Their plan seemed to be good, but it would be way too easy if it all worked out, would it?
