It is a time where rights have been wronged! Where the guilty plague the innocent! Where man and beast have little difference! HOWEVER, the new frontier has far more dangerous threats than the folly of man! Threats that are MYSTERIOUS!!! STRANGE!!! DEADLY!!! In such a chaotic era, who is brave enough to face these most dastardly beings? Enter our heroes, The Woman In Black and her right-hand man, Alexander Wortham! Together, they must confront what no one else can on this journey of blood, betrayal, and self-discovery!
