It is 1725. The southern Polish mountain village of Ciemny Gora. The peasants are revolting; so is their recently dead, newly-resurrected village priest, who suddenly delights in sleazing about the village and countryside after dark, making them all “good to the last drop.”
It had not been in the life plan of Father Marek Petrushka to live his life celibate as Roman Catholic parish priest of Ciemny Gora village, abandoning his own dreams, leaving the love of his life behind. Nor was it in his life plan to die a bizarre death at forty-six and become one of the wandering, hungry dead--a vampire, the old-fashioned kind.
Becoming a resuscitated corpse makes it possible for Marek to settle more than a few scores and confront his childhood love. Surviving twenty-first century Marek imparts a dark, personal account of vampirism and fondly reminisces about dining on the locals in “the old country.”
