It is 10 years after the global apocalypse. The Phage, the zombie virus that brought the world to its knees, has mutated, restoring the minds of its undead victims: their personalities, their memories... even their dreams. The living dead are no longer the mindless monsters that drove mankind to the brink of extinction.
This is the saga of the immortal Gon, a 30,000 year-old vampire. The first volume of his memoirs recounts his mortal life in prehistoric Germany alongside his male companion, Brulde, and his two wives, the Neanderthal Eyya and his Cro-Magnon mate, Nyala. It details the fearsome events that lead to his transformation from man to undying monster.
"Didn't grab me."
In modern-day Belgium, the vampire Gon has kidnapped a ruthless murderer. Lukas Jaeger is a cunning sociopath, a monster in the guise of a man. Lonely and fascinated by his hostage's inhumanity, Gon strikes a deal with the seductive serial killer: his life story in exchange for the mortal's vile tales. So long as Gon is intrigued, his captive lives on.
