In 1898, a prophecy warns the five remaining vampire clans in Europe that they need to unite or else they will become extinct. Joining forces is easier said than done. The last decades the clans have been fighting each other in the clan-wars. Now the Elders will have to set aside their hostile feelings so their young Heirs can attend the vampire school that is created on the ship The Elisabetha. The Heirs will learn each other's powers to become stronger than ever. They have to learn to trust each other and work together if they are to beat Dracula, who has awoken after a long sleep. The young Alisa (14) of the Vamalia clan needs to accept that she has a special connection to Dracula through the Spark. The Heirs face challenges they have never met before like attacks from the feared Redmasks; vampires controlled by Dracula; steering through storms and face vampire hunter Van Helsing. They need to survive all challenges, because they're on a quest and it's up to Alisa and the Heirs to save the world from eternal darkness.
