historical mystical blockbuster and audiobook of the year 2021
The main action of the novel takes place in May 1945 near Pillau in East Prussia (now Baltijsk). But through the events of May 1945, events of the 15th century at Marienburg Castle shine through. Mystically two epochs, two historical catastrophes – the decline of the Teutonic Order and the collapse of Nazi Regime – seem to mirror each other in a strange way.
