The Road of Darkness is the story of Addison. She's a young Southern Belle in early 1700 Louisiana with a love for Voodoo. She's a child of privilege, but never really let it go to her head. She was always a little odd.
Our little Southern Belle is attacked and turned. A vampire. However, unlike most, she embraces this new 'life'. She finds delight in it. A darkness grows within her.
Like any young vampire left to fend for themselves, she stumbles in her new existence. She meets others here and there, and the world of the paranormal opens up to her.
Due in part to her thrill of bloodlust, she becomes fascinated with war. Soon she is moving from country to country, war to war. Mans evolution and technology in the art of warfare intrigues her.
Through her time and adventures, she has fleeting bits of both happiness and sorrow. The darkness within her will only allow her so much happiness.
Her link with all things Voodoo brings her into the servitude of the Baron Semedi, demi-god of the Underworld. A deal gone bad. It only serves to deepen that darkness. Can anyone help her before she does irrevocable damage to both an entire city of innocent people...and herself?
Not your typical vampire story in the least...

Our little vampiress makes new discoveries, and meets a new mysterious stranger.
The Road of Darkness
One night, as she surveyed a ravaged battlefield, the most incredible thing happened. The hundreds of dead bodies littering the battlegrounds were being lit upon by what she could only call 'Angels.' She'd never seen anything like it before. It was beautiful, watching the young souls floating away. She froze in her place, watching the orbs of light ascend. "Never seen that before, aye?" Came a male's voice. It startled her; she whipped around, dagger in hand, her teeth bared. "Now, now, no need for hostilities. Don't you think the lands have enough of that going on with the mortal's conflicts?" He said, raising a brow at her, unflinching. He was tall, with a firm build, dark well-kept hair. He wore a soldier's uniform and carried a weapon; obvious an attempt to blend with the surroundings. He offered a smile, revealing his white fangs to her. "Calm down, Miss...I'm not here to cause any problems. I've been following you for several nights now...watching you..." He said. Addison stood there, still tense, unable to speak or move in her stunned shock.
