Praise

“Poetic and thrilling.” Huffington Post (Italy)


“Written in beautiful and cultivated language … Hugely enjoyable.”Estonian Literary Magazine

“Literary historical fiction with a hint of darker supernatural elements – such an eloquent style that takes you and wraps itself around your mind. Laurentius, recent graduate, arrives in Estonia to research the illness of evil eye only to be struck down with melancholy – an affliction greater than merely feeling low. In his haste to find a treatment, he encounters the worst of ignorance where the people of the city accuse each other of witchcraft and the suffering are all around, but who or what is the shadowy figure of a king that appears and disappears? A beautiful account of the will of science to overcome superstition and Friedenthal uses actual historical events to enhance the elements in the story.” — Raul Chapa, BookPeople
