"To the Necromancers of London!" the vampire Szandor declared. "Long may they thrive!" "To the Future!" added the Grey Man who had once been Victor Frankenstein. "Long may it last!" Feeling compelled to complete the ritual, Gregory Temple only hesitated a moment before saying: "To Life! Long may it retain the empery of the flesh!"
1823. Thanks to the technique discovered by Victor Frankenstein, it is now possible to resurrect the dead. Many competing factions plan to use such technology to reshape the world. Scotland Yard Superintendent Gregory Temple is forced to team up with Victor Frankenstein and the vampire Count Szandor against a secret cabal of Illuminati led by Joseph Balsamo. Meanwhile, in Haiti, a resurrected Napoleon faces the zombie armies of Marie Laveau...
