Nyghtfall [new 120pg graphic novel! Gothic horror at its best! The graphic novel will also relaunch Nyghtfall as a comic book series]

The story of Nyghtfall:

This graphic novel story is about a young, naive girl named Layla Caldwell. She's a girl who lives in England, during the late 1800's. She, unfortunately, is also an indentured servant to a wealthy, cruel and abusive man. Layla yearns for her freedom...at any cost. So when a fairly handsome and charismatic stranger offers her a way out of her predicament she foolishly trusts him, and is spirited off to his castle.

But this is no ordinary benefactor...for he is the powerful lord of the undead; and he's after much more than Layla realizes. Much; much more...

After Layla does find out the awful, sinister ultimate reason for her rescue; she rebels against the undead master of the castle; to which she is punished by not only being turned into one of his undead kind; but then also sealed up inside a chained shut coffin. The silver crosses that litter amongst her chains form the coffin's vampiricly unbreakable lock. He's decreed that she be left trapped inside this coffin; forever. Forever to rot / her un-satiated vampiric hunger for blood her only companion.

Time passes....

It passes, until a fateful night; a warm summers night when a full moon hovers eerily high in the night sky. A fateful night when a young 22 year old girl; and her biker gang come to the now long abandoned graveyard. They've come to party hard amongst the long departed souls; without fear of police intrusion to spoil their fun.

A fun-time is had by all; that is; until they accidentally release the up-till-then comatose vampiress. The resulting horrific and deadly chaos that ensues gives new meaning to word violence. Nyghtfall is loose upon the world...and she will stop at nothing to wreak vengeance upon the undead lord who made her what she's become! Any mortal who gets in her way is just collateral damage!

Ah, but this is not just a story of justifiable vengeance...for unforeseen by the dark lord himself, Layla is not just another vampire...she is rapidly metamorphosing into something much more, deadly...she is becoming the living embodiment of the night. She has also declared war on all the legendary creatures of horror fables; vampires; werewolves; goblins; etc. They know she'll wipe them all out if they can't stop her from fulfilling her vengeful destiny. (And if you feel safe; guess again -- Mankind is also on her hit-list too).

Can the lone 22 year old girl, Jade; sway and stem the nightmarish tide of Nightfall's onslaught let loose upon an unsuspecting world; before it's too late for all of us?!  And what is the strange, mysterious connection between Jade and the vampiress, Layla?!  Is Jade, just another human running out of time...or is she something more, too?!

*Tune in to find out all that's going to unfold within the 120 thrill-packed pages of "Nyghtfall" (the graphic novel). It's going to be one hellish ride.
