Summary: In 1626 France, a nun warns a travelling English theater group not to take a short cut through the forest. They do not heed her warning and are viciously attacked by a pack of wolves (vampires). Among those killed is a newlywed couple, Peter and Meg Benedict. After the vicious attack, the nun and the sisters from a nearby church return to bury the bodies - but not before they place a stake of wood in each victim's chest. In 1942 France, three hundred years later, during World War II, a battle is more taking place in the same forest. A mortar shell explodes in a clearing. A medic crawls through the dust and smoke, giving aid where he can. He sees a body, a large shard of wood protruding from the chest. The medic tries to help the wounded man. Just as he extracts the wood, shrapnel from another mortar hit strikes him. As the medic draws his last breath, the man draws his first in three centuries. At that very moment, the vampire that created him smiles, knowing that one of his children is alive again. Once the resurrected Peter Benedict realizes what he has become, he is determined to destroy his maker, the consummately malevolent, Andre Bouchard. Andre has other plans for Peter, expecting him to embrace a life of evil and become a protege. As Peter makes his way to England to confront his nemesis, he meets a young orphaned boy and an English woman who is an espionage courier for Great Britain. Together, they struggle to return home and to help in Peter's plan to overthrow Andre. Michael Hart is an award-winning teacher at a private Los Angeles, California.
