Vampires are at the brink of extinction ruled with a heavy hand by the Hunters, an order of vampire slayers that has existed since the beginning of mankind. The centuries-old law is very clear; a vampire can only feed off criminals whose names are on the lists provided by the Hunters. Any other interaction with humans means punishment and even execution if they are harmed.

But when an unlikely friendship between a human girl and a vampire starts to grow into something much deeper, can these laws be obeyed?

Children of the Night is a Gothic romance set in the Victorian Era, depicting a young woman's coming of age amidst a clash between vampires and the Hunters, an order of vampire slayers.

Slow updates notice

Starting in 2015 the comic is in a state of semi-hiatus and will update sporadically whenever I have time to work on a page. I'm currently finishing my degree and working full-time, including weekends, so there's not much time left to work on the comic.

I will, however, continue working on new pages whenever possible, but it takes quite a long time to complete a page when you can only dedicate a few hours here and there in a month. But I will definitely continue updating, just very slowly. Thank you for your understanding and I apologize for the slow updates.


Please do not take credit or reuse any of the material without my consent. Some mature content, so viewer discretion is advised. Keep in mind that English is not my native language, so spelling and grammar mistakes are bound to happen.
