Beware of Serpent Queen’s Glance
Artur Kornilin, the artist, came to visit his grandfather, the forester who lived in the woods near the much-rumored lake. He hoped to paint his masterpiece there, and he succeeded in this. His friend, businessman and art critic Sergey Gorsky, was stunned by his new paintings.
However, soon Kornilin died under very strange circumstances leaving his most mysterious painting, “Serpent Queen”, to his friend.
What caused the artist’s death: accident or murder? Gorsky starts his own investigation and gets involved into strange events. Is his meeting with Lida and Alena – two sisters from the woods who became rivals in their love to him – accidental? What will be the result of fatal love? Is the legend of the Serpent Queen related to the artist’s death? And if yes, how to break the enchanted circle?
Modern events and fatal passions get intertwined in the mysterious way with life of medieval Florence and the ancient Egypt.
