Jack wants to believe it was only a dream - the vampires are gone, banished for a thousand years by an ancient ritual that sent their leader to the depths of Hell. But he isn't so sure. That voice still echoes in his mind, the voice of the vampire god, promising to return. Ages 9-14.
London docks, twilight, 1850...Twelve-year-old Jack Harkett sees a huge ship sail into port. he also sees a flock of black creatures fly from the ship and disappear over the streets of London.

Together they seek to defeat Camazotz - the vampiric bat god who destroyed the Mayan civilization that destroyed him. But Jack is a street urchin and Ben is an orphan.
