The Twisted Life of Nikolai Isayev
Living in 24th century Imperial Russia, Nikolai Isayev could say his life was perfect, filled with elegant balls and lavish parties; and all he had to do was find the perfect woman to share his life and maintain his ever-growing family fortune. Heir to a luxury hotel chain, Nikolai is the perfect candidate for any single woman; but he has his eyes set on just one, Josephine Ovskyevna, who was the perfect partner in his eyes and he in hers. But regardless of any of their true feelings she announces her engagement to Ivan Voronov, one of his best friends and Duke of Peninsula, breaking Nikolai's heart and tragically pulling them apart. He finds solace in Beatrice Rozanova, another soul heart-broken by Josephine and Ivan's decision. Living with the sorrow from the rejection, a series of nightmares and a brutal serial killer, Nikolai's life is torn apart and he is thrown into a psychological spiral, until he finally finds the killers identity, his true nature and the meaning of those mysterious nightmares.
