In the dead of winter, when its wrath is at its peak, something stirs. Something so evil and full of hate, there are no words that can describe it. In the small village of Chust, Tomas and his son, Peter, make their livelihood as woodsmen. As attacks upon livestock occur, rumors of the Shadow Queen drift back and forth around the village. When the wandering gypsies come to Chust, painful memories of the past flood through Tomas. An ancient evil has once again risen, and Tomas must go out to face it.
