Jericho’s vacation is interrupted when he learns that an ancient vampire angel, Dakota, has risen. Dakota’s story is unique in that both angels and demons believe he’s an abomination and want to destroy him. Instead of blood, Kota survives off human souls, which poses a threat to both Heaven and the underworld. The humans that he turns into creatures of the night, are more zombie-like than vampires, and are called minions. When a demon coerces the vampire Lord, Caden, leader of the Ireland Murphy clan, to hunt down and kill Dakota, it sets off a chain of events that lead to Jericho. The slayer, in turn must deal with Kota, new threats like vampires sirens, and werewolves, all while trying to understand his own powers.
