At the end of his last adventure, Eddie Drood and his lady love, Molly Metcalf, were en route home from a well-deserved vacation. The good times came to a halt when they discovered the unthinkable: the impregnable mansion/headquarters of the Drood family is utterly destroyed and the family dead to the very last Drood. Overwhelmed, Eddie and Molly investigate but it seems that the Droods, who have protected mankind from supernatural threats for millennia…are gone.

From official release/information:

Product Description: The name is Bond, Shaman Bond. Better known as Drood, Eddie Drood Yes, I’m one of those Droods—the family who’ve been keeping the forces of evil contained in the shadows for as long as humans have walked the earth.

Recently, I suffered a slight case of death, but thanks to Molly, my best girl (who happens to be a powerful witch), I got over that right quick. Unfortunately, my family wasn’t so lucky. In my absence, Drood Hall was destroyed and all my relatives were killed. Which left me as the Last of the Droods.

I didn’t much like being The Last Drood, I can tell you—and then I realized that things weren’t as they seemed. Someone had activated a dimensional engine, sending my Drood Hall off to an alternate Earth, replacing it with a burnt-out doppelganger. My family is still alive out there. Somewhere.

And nothing’s going to stop me from finding them…
