Summary
Three neighboring villages on the Ukrainian/Romanian border are the final refuge for the last of the mythical creatures of Eastern Europe. Now, on the eve of the war that may eradicate their kind--and with the ruthless Night Police descending upon their sanctuary--they tell their stories and confront their destinies. Eerie and unsettling like the best fairy tales, these incisor-sharp portraits of ghosts, witches, sirens, and seers--and the mortals who live at their side and in their thrall--will chill your marrow and tear at your heart
Summary
