But suddenly a legion of vampires attacks the skyscraper and massacres its occupants. Hounded in the 102 floors that have become a deadly trap, Terry must take decisive action to save himself and his friends – and the city of New York – before the army of abominations, and the terrible vampire god within, walled in the building since its construction, spill into the city…

*I received an ARC through Netgalley for my honest opinion*
The art from this series is quite well done and is in the same fashion as The Walking Dead (as it is the same artist). Adlard is a very talented artist that can create a horror-genre style that is still similar to a Marvel or DC comic. I definitely feel the art is done well and fits the vampire story.
The story, however, was confusing and I didn’t really care for the characters. The idea of vampires being stored somewhere in the Empire State Building was really interesting, but I didn’t know more than that. So of the stunts the main character did were also not physically possible, which also made me lose interest quite fast. I finished the graphic novel, however, and did like how it was all finished in one book. There were still a lot of unanswered questions, but if you are looking for something short and of the horror genre, you might enjoy it more than I did.
