It is the story of a young woman willing to cross the borders of the human to be with the man she loves. That man is Boone, a beautiful, tortured soul who believes himself responsible for atrocious crimes. He has taken refuge in a necropolis, situated in the wilds of Canada, beneath which all the last great monsters of the world--the nightbreed--are in hiding. They are possessed of extraordinary powers; so is Boone. And in the hunt for Boone, they too will be hunted. Can they survive when the colder, deadlier monsters of the twentieth century are on thier heels? And can Lori's love withstand the extraordinary truth of Boone's soul?
