A fairy tale that reads like dark chocolate. Sweet and inviting, yet surprisingly bitter upon reading this deceptively dark fairy tale. Welcome to Maple Town.
After a young boy becomes a reluctant vampire, he is forced to sign a contract to kill someone in his home of Maple Town. This is the condition behind the mysterious adoption of fifteen-year old Charlie. While under the care of the grieving widower, Vincent Prowl, Charlie can never go outside. Vincent's only explanation is that it's too dangerous. One day Charlie escapes and Vincent realizes he'll do anything to save his son —even if it means the destruction of the town he once loved in exchange for he and his son's freedom. All the while, unbeknownst to the fact that a young, locked away witch named Alice holds the key to preventing a tragedy and freeing Charlie from his gruesome contract and the deadline that grows closer with each day.
