The other thing that really grated was the indeterminate sense of time and place, which was confusing as I couldn’t see any reason why the story shouldn’t be definitively set in a real ruuizat least. Looking for things that go bump in the night and give you a shiver down the spine?

Max takes his bike for a ride, and begins to explore the town. Decades later, Victor noticed someone suspicious following him home.
