Serbia in the 18th century- battleground of empires. In Belgrade, safe for now behind the fortress walls, a Habsburg princess waits for love. Outside, fear stalks the land. And then the devil comes to town, untrustworthy servant in tow. Are the dead truly rising from their graves? Is the Last Judgment beginning here in the Balkans? (And can it be stopped in time?) The two royal narrators - one from Austria, one from Hell - join the hunt for the undead, traveling through history, myth, and literature, into the dark corners of a land that has given every human language its most infamous word- Vampire.
