During a stormy night, the Storyteller, sitting by the fire of a stake, inside a strange cabin, lost in a creepy woods of dead leaves, that seems taken from the nightmares of the craziest dreamer of stories, he tells his stories to all those who arrive at the cabin in search for shelter.

They are horror and fantasy tales under which there is hidden a dark reality, stories in which the true evil lies locked inside the men´s hearts. A patina of uneasiness, that will not abandon us at any moment during the reading, will adhere to our chest, while the errant minstrel rips story by story the mysteries and truths of the human nature, intermingling them with a powerful imagination and an overflowing fantasy. They will be cruel tales, but provided with not very few doses of sweetness, hidden among the shadows, like flowers under a cluster of bad weeds that try to soffocate their beauty.
