Deep within the dusty basement of a New York Museum, recovered from the depths of the ocean floor, lies mythology’s most infamous artifact: Pandora’s Box. Sealed inside since time immemorial are creatures we thought were works of fiction, myths created by our ancestors. There, they have raged, awaiting a chance to escape and seek vengeance upon mankind for sealing them in their prison.
Now, rogue art thief Charles Deckard, hired by a shadowy organization to steal the box, learns that the line between fact and fiction is not as clear as it seems.
During the mission, Deckard, unaware of the box’s true identity, unwittingly releases its horrors into the world, triggering a war between man and myth. Now, giant griffons rule the city skies, ravenous werewolves stalk the urban streets in search of flesh, and Deckard is left branded with a signet that is the secret to man’s salvation. With the aid of a clandestine paramilitary force, he must fight to seal the door between reality and myth or see loss of civilization to the tooth and claw of legend.
