The vampire Caleb Croft has awakened from his unholy slumber – with an insatiable lust for blood and the pleasures of the flesh. A brutal attack on a pair of lovers allows for his desire to be temporarily fulfilled… but his unspeakable acts leave the woman pregnant with his child. Ignoring all advice, she gives birth to the progeny of their unwanted union: James – who will only drink blood from his mother’s breast. As James matures, he learns of his father’s true nature, and sets out to destroy him.
