About the Book
Roman Petriv, a retired voivod, is looking forward to enjoying some peace after a lifetime of warring. His last fight, leading a successful defense of Zavaliv from the Ottoman attack ten years ago made him a first choice for the town's magistrate.

They had known ten years of peace and it felt good. When Cossack’s sotnja comes by, it stirs up memories of his past and reminds him that his sense of peace is not shared by the rest of the land. Many of the Cossacks are wounded from the battles which rage closer and closer to home.

When warriors leave, a new threat emerges: the kind Roman has no idea how to fight. Ancient forest gods of his predecessors do not feel threatened by the sharp edge of a steel weapon. While the Christian faith is the predominant one in the land, the truth is that it, like a veil, is laid over the much older faith. Ancient Slavic paganism and its deities still exist deep in the abundant forests of these lands.

Sometimes they meddle in human affairs.

When the old gods answer the town witch, things begin to spiral out of control.
