Detailed book overview
If you’re reading this, then it means that you didn’t take the above warning seriously. And that means you’re just as dumb as I am.
My name’s Logan by the way.
I should have paid attention to the warning signs, but I didn’t.
It’s hard finding happiness when you have no job, no family and no girlfriend—after she dumped me for her best friend.
My only company was Skip, my cokehead buddy.
My story was however neither caused by Skip nor drugs.
To cut to the chase, I had a drunken make-out session with a pale girl by a dumpster.
And to my dismay, the girl had allegedly been pronounced dead earlier that evening.
Where is the girl? Did I bring this on myself?
Crime is rampant in the darkest streets of Edmonton. The police have exhausted their resources and citizens live in constant fear of their safety.
With the city depraved of justice, someone needs to give these criminals exactly what they deserve. No courts or verdicts, just unadulterated fury.
That’s exactly what Michael Bradford keeps telling himself.
He struggles with violent tendencies while personally investigating the Crystal Moths, the most infamous gang in Edmonton.
When his vigilante ways however get recorded on camera and uploaded to the internet with the hashtag YEGman, the videos draw the attention of a rebellious journalism student who is determined to cover the heroics of the city's underground hero.
As much as Rutherford Manor is a safe haven for some, it’s a dark and sinister place for others.
It’s a place run by the Fleshers and the Savidges, the two families that have survived for generations leading up to the present day of 1890.
Desperate to provide for their families, Headmaster Alastor Flesher and his business partner, Spalding Savidge, strike a deal with the Irish mob known as The White Hand; one that sees them work as resurrectionists for the gang.
This however marks the beginning of their problems, as it unleashes a series of events that will forever change Rutherford Manor.

The two however go their separate ways when Krista fully supports their leader’s call of unification, with Darkwing supporting the anarchist views of the infamous Blood hounds gang .
However, when their leaders become infected by a mysterious disease called Mental Damnation, Krista faces thin chances of survival due to the rise in a military dictatorship and the pervasive politically instigated gangs.
