Harvest time in Camelot as each year passes the land dies, the leaves scurry away on the chill winds, and the wolves make life a living nightmare. Struggling with the rigors of daily survival, King Arthur must solve the riddle of the sudden mystery of bloodless corpses before it is too late. Surrounded by death, deceit, and betrayal will he expose the lone villain that laughs at him from the darkness, Lord Valkamar?

King Arthur and Lord Lancelot must expose the cunning vampire of old, before it is too late. Guinevere and the rest of the knights are all in danger as the villain’s plan to crush Camelot comes to fruition.

King Arthur, Sir Lancelot, Queen Guinevere, Helric the Great, and introducing Lord Valkamar all fight in a tug of war across a pit of despair.

Who will win out and who will fall to ruin in this epic battle of wills?
