''You don't want to be going that way, my dear,'' the voice cooed from everywhere at once. ''Ancient things that feast on flesh have made their home there and just now, girls are melting away like snow.''

Kovya Karazamova, the storyteller's daughter, has many names. Soldier. Tretyak. Heretic. But there is one that they are afraid to say, one that they whisper in the dark with shivering tongues and trembling limbs. There is a creature who wears the skin of a girl, who plucks faces from the minds of people and spins shadows into things, with greedy fingers and a scorned heart. The Face Thief, they call her. And even the trees scream of her sins.

Fleurie, Ruelle and Svrcina. I FINALLY MET SOMEONE WHO LISTENS TO THEM!!!
Well, damn, if there's Bastille in this soundtrack, of course I'm going to listen to it.
I love this so far and the fact that I'm Russian makes this story so much better for me 😁

                              *cough cough*
                              
                              well i had to say something in russian but that might not be the best. I will be reading.
I'm doing a russian-inspired story too. albeit it's set in the future on a mars colony.
                              
                              This is of infinite help. Even if you don't learn cyrillic, that comes naturally later on anyway.
