Warning: this story finishes on a cliff-hanger.
Visitors are coming to the Nocturnal Academy. Some good, some bad, some old and some new. All are seeking something to make their lives complete; food, solace, their only offspring and bloody revenge. Which one will succeed?
Alice Dibble is spending her entire summer break at the school. Professor Abbacus sees that she is depressed and alone, and presents her with a gift to keep her mind off her personal situation. A bizarre and unique gift she soon discovers that will occupy much of her time and effort.
But it is a present she will grow to love.
While Professor Abbacus reveals a story from his past, the history behind his gift to Alice, Father Lost from the Church of the Stigmata is ousted from his position and forced to approach the school for help.
As he is now a supernatural, the school is obligated to take him in. Professor Abbacus agrees to teach him how to use his powers to their full potential.
Because soon everyone’s help will be needed when the visitor seeking vengeance arrives and invades the school.
