Once a bounty hunter with the Strontium Dogs, vampire Durham Red went into hibernation for thousands of years. Awoken in the far future by the mutant Judas Harrow, she discovered that the hate between humans and mutants was as strong as ever. Resolved to end the conflict for all time, Durham has travelled to the area of space known as the Vermin Stars, accompanied by Harrow and a human, Matthias Godolkin - once a mutant hunter, now convinced that the vampire has enslaved him. But will she be able to enlist the help of the mutant terrorists, the Tenebrae, and finally end the war?
