A beautifully painted haunting vampire tale. Beware of the Verdilak curse. Once under it, loved ones rise from the dead and can only feed upon you! Such was the curse set by devil-spawn Ramash when he took in a frightened lost girl for shelter only to lose her to a handsome highwayman. Years later, a sceptical Vladimir Grandier comes to claim his inheritance in that forsaken land where such curses are part of every day life. Drawn in by the beautiful Svenya, he becomes mired in an ever-quickening spiral of self-destruction in her family which he desperately tries to stop.
