Publisher's description

A spine-tingling illustrated interactive novel Written and illustrated by Antonio Antiochia

Their Royal Highnesses, Prince Erik and Princess Sabrina, and I, Chamberlain Mikhail, implore you to aid our kingdom. A murderous Vampyr terrorizes the land of Wallachia and plots to overthrow the rightful heir to the throne, Crown Prince Erik.

The Vampyr has in his possession The Crimson Crown, which he stole from His Majesty, King John the Good. The crown possesses great magical powers, as yet unknown to the Vampyr. Should he learn them and the means to employ them, the kingdom is most certainly doomed.

Prince Erik and Princess Sabrina will accompany you, if you should decide to help save this land and its people. I must warn you, this will be dangerous adventure! The Vampyr is treacherous and will do all in his power to destroy you and your Royal companions.

Signed, Mikhail
