Publisher's 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.

Worth a review

Wow, I have hundreds of audiobooks and this is only the second book I’ve felt inclined to leave a review for. The stories and the performance are excellent. With three small kids it’s very hard for me to focus on an audiobook but this one was no problem and finished it very quickly. Spooky and interesting. Was shocked to hear a story based an hour or so from where I live in Manitoba so it’s just another perk that the author is Canadian

Not my cup of tea

I am one of those people who have to read a book to the bitter end...and this one was a stuggle to do! I couldn't relate to the narrators and it was not making sense for the most part. I supposed under all of this the story may have been the guiding force to finish but unfortunately it was not. for me a waste of time and money

excellent performance

very good, took a while to finish because I could not listen to it at night because the voice work was so spooky.

Not worth a credit

I was intrigued by the sample story, but disappointed by the others the collection. Although okay in places, the performance became irritating and was not well done overall. I couldn't listen to more then an hour of this.
