Creatures of myth and legends used a portal to take them to another realm and built the city of Necropolis which is formed in the shape of a pentagram. Each point on the Pentagram is ruled by a dark lord who has control over the creatures in his holding in this fictional story. Vampires, lycanthropes, witches, shades and zombies co-exist in an uneasy peace policed by the Sentinels, eight foot Golems.

While working on a serial killer case, Detective Matt Adrian follows the murderer into Necropolis where he metes out justice before he is killed and becomes a self-willed intelligent zombie. Preservative spells to keep him from rotting away fail and Matt has two days left to find a way to restore his body. Devona, the daughter of Master Vampire Lord Galm, hires him to find the Dawn that was stolen from her father's collection. It could destroy Necropolis by bringing light into a world that knows only darkness. Matt hopes that Galm would be so grateful that he would find a way for the ex-policeman to keep on existing. Of course there are various people and creatures that would rather see them dead than succeed.

NECROPOLIS is a dark fantasy book that doesn't take its plot too seriously.
