Summary
"Black Fire is a dark, psychological thriller steeped in Slavic folklore and European history. Two soldiers in Napoleon's army retreating from his disastrous campaigns in Russia are separated from their unit by a Cossack attack and stumble across an ancient, abandoned mining town where strange and horrific doings are afoot. Teaming up with another unit of forlorn stragglers, they soon discover that they are lost deep in forbidden territory--trapped in the earthly prison of a dark monster-god out of Slavic legend and nightmare. Stalked by the freezing cold of the Russian winter, starvation, madness, the ghosts of the dead, and each other, how can they escape a terrible fate without unleashing an evil bane upon the world?"--P. [4] of cover
