Good Children Do Taste BetterThree neighbouring villages on the Ukrainian/Romanian border are the final refuge for the last of the mythical creatures of Eastern Europe. Now, on the eve of the war that may eradicate their kind - and with the ruthless Night Police descending upon their sanctuary - they tell their stories and confront their destinies.&nbsp The Rusalka, the beautiful vengeful water spirit who lives in lakes and ponds and lures men and children to their deaths; The Vovkulaka, who changes from her human form into that of a wolf, and hides with her kind deep in the densest forests; The Strigoi, a revenant who feasts on blood and twists the minds of those who love, serve and shelter him; The Dvoynik, an apparition that impersonates its victim and draws him into a web of evil in order to free itself; And the Bone Mother, a skeletal crone with iron teeth who lurks in her house in the heart of the woods, and cooks and eats those who fail her vexing challenges.Eerie and unsettling like the best fairy tales, these incisor-sharp portraits of ghosts, witches, sirens and seers - and the mortals who live at their side and in their thrall - will chill your marrow and tear at your heart.
