When Richard Marlow buys a taxidermy hare from an old antiques shop, little does he realise it contains the soul of the sinister and immortal warlock of Russian folklore, Koschei the Deathless. Soon, Koschei himself turns up, demanding his soul be returned to him - on the very weekend that Richard's girlfriend, Becky, has invited her mother to stay. Can Richard negotiate a tricky social situation whilst simultaneously thwarting the malevolent sorcerer?
The term Koshey appears in Slavic chronicles as early as the 12th century to refer to an officer or official during a military campaign. In Old Russian 'Kosh' means a camp, while in Belarussian a similar term means 'to camp' and in Turkic languages a similar term means 'a wanderer'. See more »
