Three weeks ago while working on a church’s renovation in Romania, two brothers discover ancient ruins in a hidden altar. The two believe that it could bring them fame and fortune, but the tomb had something much more in store for the two men. Cutting his hand on a skull, the brother has now been infected by an ancient evil that humans and vampires will fear the same. An undefeatable force could be unleashed on the world if a group of Hunters cannot stop the ancient evil from achieving full transformation.
Carrie is the most tenured Hunter on her team and is not afraid to tell the others in the crew what is needed. At this point in time, they need a new revenue stream to fund their operations, but the most recent vampire kills have left them with no money and a new artifact. The vampires they recently put down were wearing a black stake with a red V around their necks, nothing of monetary value, but a sign that the group has never seen before. Regardless of the new threat, the group still needs money and finds that a recent missing person case may be their ticket, with a rich brother that will pay to locate his kin.
Along the way, Carrie and her team are investigating a vampire den where everyone has been killed by some uncontrollable force. Fighting with the only survivor of the attack, the crew is able to subdue and interrogate the old vampire. Stanis, the old vampire, is chained to a table while Carrie and friends start to torture the old soul. Trying to convince the Hunters that he is not their enemy, Stanis gives them enough little tidbits of information to keep them from destroying himself, but time is running out as the second coming of a more dangerous creature is coming upon the world.
Later, Carrie and her client, Clayton are kidnapped by a band of vampires that are looking for the whereabouts of Clayton’s brother. Knowing more than the Hunters, the group of vampires are looking for the brother who has been bitten by the ancient evil of Vlad Kossei. Vlad Kossei has to do only one thing to become immortal once again, have all of his surviving bloodline killed. He cannot accomplish this himself, he needs someone else to carry out the deed. Carrie tries to escape and kill as many of the bloodsuckers as she can, but is being held by her ex-boyfriend who is trying to convince her who the real threat is before he is killed.
Brotherhood of Blood follows a group of vampire hunters that is trying to continue their quest to rid the world of the bloodsuckers. When most of the group is killed on their latest hunt, Carrie and two others have to trust the ramblings of their new prisoner, Stanis. Stanis explains what is in store for the hunters and his own race if nothing is done about the second coming of Vlad Kossei. Trying to prepare for their own survival, the vampires have taken to their hiding place, but somehow, the Vlad Kossei winds up at their front door. Can the humans and vampires come together to defeat the ancient evil or will they continue their life long battle and allow Vlad Kossei to live once again?
Not a classical vampire story as the Hunters have to rely on their lifelong enemies for survival. Having to put trust in ones enemy to survive and defeat the ultimate evil is something that has been left out of vampire stories for many years. Although Carrie is a very strong woman on her own, her history comes back to haunt her as she has to battle for her own survival, along with the new menace that even frightens the vampires. A fun vampire move that will have you pulling for the humans as they try to escape, but once the vampires are under attack by the ancient evil, you may turn your pity to them as well. Stay Scared.
