Strange happenings lead the BPRD (Bureau of Paranormal Research & Defence) to Romania on the trail of Vladimir Giurescu, a man who has seemingly been part of many major paranormal incidences over the centuries. Hellboy finds himself at Castle Giurescu where he must once again face Lovecraftian supernatural monsters and demons.

As seems to an emerging pattern, the main plot playing in the foreground, while Rasputin and his supernatural minions lurk in the shadows. Once more the darkly figure of Rasputin comes to tempt Hellboy, daring him to fulfill his destiny and personify the apocalypse.

Dark and disturbing, Mignola sweeps up his readers and takes them into a dreamy nightmare with exquisite artwork and poetic dialogue.
