Kaarina didn’t hesitate when Valeri asked her: – Will you come with me? I’m going to leave everything behind and start a new life.
The Servant of Dusk takes place in a world familiar from Sari Peltoniemi’s earlier fantasy novel, The Scale. Kaarina’s and Valeri’s ballad-like love story is intertwined with a fascinating alternative history and the timeless charm of fantasy – and with Jesse, whose game has turned into reality.
