Arkeley leads Caxton to a tomb in Gettysburg lately excavated via a neighborhood archaeology professor. whereas the city, with its mythical position within the Civil War’s worst conflict, isn't any stranger to cemeteries, this one is remarkably, eerily diversified. In it lie a hundred coffins—99 of them occupied by means of vampires, who, fortunately, are lacking their hearts. yet one of many coffins is empty and smashed to items.
