In late nineteenth-century Paris, Noah is a boy in search of the Book of Vanitas, a grimoire written centuries earlier by a vampire in order to take revenge on his fellow men: the only one to be born under the moon blue instead of red, Vanitas had attracted the hatred of other vampires, and to redeem himself he had placed a powerful curse on them all ...

During an airship trip, events take an unexpected turn when Noah meets a mysterious vampire doctor, a man who seems to have inherited the book and the very name of Vanitas…

Rumors revolving around The Book of Vanitas, a clockwork grimoire of dubious reputation, draw Noé, a young vampire in search of a friend’s salvation, to Paris. What awaits him in the City of Flowers, however, is not long hours treading the pavement or rifling through dusty bookshops in search of the tome. Instead, his quarry comes to him…in the arms of a man claiming to be a vampire doctor! Thrust into a conflict that threatens the peace between humans and vampires, will Noé cast in his lot with the curious and slightly unbalanced Vanitas and his quest to save vampirekind?
