Having arrived in Irkutsk, Benedykt Gierosławski finds himself in the surrounding of business leaders and industrialists, some of whom seek the political independence of Siberia. Here he collaborates with the ingenious American inventor Nikola Tesla, whom the Russian emperor commissioned to develop weapons against the Chills in order to overcome Ice and unfreeze History. However, the dangers and trials, brought on by fanatical Frost fans under the leadership of the omnipotent Grigori Rasputin, could take Benedykt anywhere. Yet he goes to the very heart of the Region of Winter. Will Gierosławski find his father? How will Tesla’s experiments turn out? Will there be a great Thaw in Eurasia? And will our hero find his Helen the Fair?
