A debauch of the fabulous, in a book of damned passions and deadly charms.
A forest of witches and enchanted herbs. A strange being. An unusual occurrence. Out of time, out of history. In the heart of the story.
As the perfumed steam of a singular world flares up in the Cotroceni Forest, something terrible and ancient enters the houses of the citizens in Bucharest. A ghost starts haunting Gorgani, and people start vanishing, one by one. Among them, a famous fortune-teller, whose existence has a deep impact on the lives of many. Through the dark nights, a red carriage courses the streets, stirring the ancestral fears of the city. And, just as it always happens during vulnerable times, a man and a woman fall madly in love.
Everything is told by a mysterious narrator whose fabulous biography we find in the last chapter. Happenings not understood until then get explanations.
