“A chilling modern fairy tale ... caustic, bleak ... wrought with a terrible, fabulist beauty.” —Kirkus Reviews

Hanka didn’t ask to see the fates of her loved ones. She didn’t invite the raven into her nightmares, with his riddles of suffering and death. She didn’t ask, at six years old, to be responsible for saving her family. 

But fate chooses us, and Hanka can either play the raven’s game, or watch her family die. 

The question is, will the raven play by the rules? Or is Hanka his final victim?

Already a best-seller in Poland, Absolute Sunset is now available in English for the first time in a professional, edited translation. A must-read for fans of dark psychological thrillers.

Readers say:
“Mesmerizing, scary and chilling ... you know people like this exist.”
“A huge piece of the sad, overwhelming reality of Poland a few decades ago.”
“I felt like Absolute Sunset wanted to kill me.”
“Left me thinking long after finishing the book.”

Warning: Absolute Sunset is an intense novel, with serious themes including mental illness and abuse. Not appropriate for young or sensitive readers
