Cybele Moondragon is an unemployed English graduate student who is disillusioned with her life and tired of being in debt.

Absolutely brilliant storytelling. Horton takes the reader on a journey through the dangerous, sexy, troubling world of Gothland, painting sensory rich images with his lyrical command of language. In Gothland, the reader encounters intriguing and secretive characters scarred and transformed by their war time experiences and the following revolution. Through juxtapositions of past and present, truths are revealed, truths are obscured, and the reader must piece together each tantalizing clue to discover the truth of the Major and Katyusha’s quest for Der Film. This is a book that demands to be read again and again and each time the reader will discover new and imaginative ideas and images to be swept up in. A must-read book for anyone looking for a great book to start 2014 off with a bang not a whimper.
