In fact, the whole idyllic hamlet of Kamensic, New York, is ready to party, for legendary avant-garde film director--and Lits godfather--Alex Kern is coming back to reopen his fabulous mansion, Bolerium. But it wont be just any party. Itll be the event of all time.The whole town is invited, young and old, famous and obscure. But other, more disturbing guests are arriving, too--seen at the edges of the forest, at the margins of the night. Kerns connections extend far beyond Hollywood, beyond even the modern age . . . and in Boleriums echoing halls a fearsome confrontation is gathering, between ancient powers of the darkness and those sworn to stop them at any cost, no matter what--or who--the sacrifice...even an innocent girl.
