When Mr. Quevedo and Ms. Gongorina find an old diary full of ramblings of an old writer, they're not sure if its real or just fiction. They soon realize something darker may be at work behind the scenes as they're unable to stop thinking about a certain vampire...

A trail of clues leads them to Inkless Keep where the sinister Count Esdrújula's masterplan is coming to fruition, creating nightmares that latch on people's minds slowly and unstoppably forbidding the creation of new stories.
