Amnesiac Jei Rivera spends his life day-by-day involved as a fighter in the underground clubs of Manila, Philippines. For as long as he can remember, he’s had nothing to live for, but no reason to die. That’s until he meets a familiar face: Malaya, an aswang from the southern region of Mindanao who claims Jei is a missing part of a crucial war among these shapeshifting Filipino vampires. Jei, hoping to reawaken the abilities Malaya says he has, sets off on a journey south to Mindanao with Malaya and the last survivor of the mantahungal clan, all the while dodging segbin warriors who are now set on taking Jei prisoner. But with the voice in Jei’s head forever taunting him as they draw nearer and nearer to Butuan where the manduruko clan’s base is, Jei begins to slowly realize that not all is as it seems.
