About My WIP – Escape the Night Masterpost

Dear Reader,

I have been working on my WIP for a while now (over two years), and since I’ve recently begun to post AUs about my characters for said WIP, I thought it was time for a sort of masterpost about my WIP so I can introduce more people to it!
Be aware that some of the information listed here contains spoilers!

☾ The Title

Escape the Night

☾ The Premise

Imagine you walk through a forest and hike up a hill, only to stand in front of a beautiful castle that seems frozen in time.
Would you go in if I told you horrid stories about it and mention that once you walk through its doors, you could never leave again – even if that’s what you wanted to more than anything?
Would you try to Escape the Night?

☾ The Elevator Pitch

A castle inhabited by vampires. A girl carrying her ancestor’s legacy. A lovesick King. A boy who wants to put an end to everything.

☾ An Excerpt

Moon Song
Come, see, child.
The moon as red as brightest love
and boiling hatred shines above.

Come, see, child.
Follow it, and what you see
will all be your destiny.

Come see, child.
Run from it, and you will know
what you have been missing so.

Come see, child.
Look above and you will heed,
all that will return to be.
