One cold midnight, a freak wave of energy pulsed across the country. Every living being in the area was unwillingly transformed - mind, body, and soul - into a monster, taking upon its physical features, mental processes, and psychological behaviors. Cows turned to minotaurs, bears into ogres, people into vampires and more. Within seconds, the nation was overrun by werewolves, hellhounds, and carnivorous plants. The wave had a secondary effect too: each monster was imbued with a strong yearning and desire to do nothing but… kill.
A few seemingly ordinary teenagers were immune to this wave. They woke up in the morning to find out that their entire lives - everything - had changed. Family and friends had become entirely different creatures, each and every one more than willing to strike at the throat. Around them, society had broken down as every worker in the country lost themselves, and not a single person had any idea why.
You are one of the Unchanged, as the immune are called. You have no way of knowing who can be trusted, for not all monsters look like one on the outside. All you know is that they want your death, and you must fight tooth and nail to even live to the next day. Maybe you don’t quite know how to survive, but you should better learn fast.
Possibly, if you can find and work with others like you, you can find the answer to some vital questions.
What has happened? Where did the wave of energy come from? Why are you an exception?
And, perhaps most importantly, how can you bring the world back to normal?
Darkness Rising is a dystopian urban fantasy adventure with a touch of mystery.
