A rare mutation has occurred within the vampire community: the Reaper. Reapers are so consumed with an insatiable bloodlust that they prey on vampires as well as humans, transforming victims who are unlucky enough to survive into Reapers themselves. Now their quickly expanding population threatens the existence of vampires, and soon there won’t be enough humans in the world to satisfy their craving. Blade, Whistler, and an armory expert named Scud are curiously summoned by the Shadow Council. The council members reluctantly admit that they are in a dire situation and require Blade’s assistance. Blade then tenuously enters into an alliance with the Bloodpack, an elite team of vampires trained in all modes of combat to defeat the Reaper threat. Blade’s team and the Bloodpack are the only line of defense that can prevent the Reaper population from wiping out the vampire and human populations.
