Aaron Knight, the son of a New York cop, is a freelance photojournalist living in Richmond, Virginia in the spring of 1963. He is desperate to make the rent. He stakes out the Old Richmond Graveyard where he is caught in a dimensional breach. His soul is transported to the Darkness, a prison dimension called Kiakto. There dark and evil creatures were condemned by the Sentinels of the Multi-Verse Alliance. An alliance which has long ago fallen. Aaron escapes the Darkness. However, what Aaron doesn’t understand and what the evil creatures of the Darkness do not realise is, when you step into the Darkness, the Darkness becomes part of you.
