Series “Playing with the colors of death”:
Book 1 “Await the pilgrim on the stormy day”
Book 2 “What dream of blood means”
Book 3 “Beware of Serpent Queen’s glance”
Book 4 “All coincidences are not accidental”.
This is the second book of the series “Playing with the flowers of death”.
It is more gothic than mystical or detective novel because love to the dead and the atmosphere of past times fill this book. It does not make it worse because all depicted events are fascinating and hold the attention of the reader. In this book we meet new key characters – Valeriya and Nikita. Valeriya also owns the statuette of Buddha as well as Tina. She also obtains the ruby earrings from her lover who was killed by some unknown people. Her element is fire; she can control it, but does not know yet how to succeed it in. Yet the puzzle is not complete. Why Buddha statuettes bring death and who is after their owners? The quest for answers leads the characters further and further…
As for me, “What dream of blood means” is the best gothic novel I have ever read. It is perfectly in the traditions of Old Russian literature and is definitely worth reading.
