The Twilight of the Magical Siren tells the tragic tale of the death of the old pagan gods as the Roman Empire abandoned their worship in favor of Christianity. Judah, an adrift young Jew wasting away as a nighttime lighthouse keeper, meets one evening a haunting siren with a melancholy song, bereft now of human devotees. But her enchanted delights will require Judah to pay a terrible price.
