Nigredo's Empire and the Dark Lands
Cantine e candele, ombre e scale. Demoni e angeli come strutture geometriche, capaci di attraversare il tempo con grazia e mattanza. Streghe camuffate da fate, bambine con pupille da vecchie. Scatole, passaggi, muri, pomelli e bicchieri, coltelli e sedie. Botteghe, torri, finestre, porte, crepe, nebbia, alberi, pozze. Ogni cosa ha una propria luce, ogni cosa ha la sua ombra.
