Summary/Review: "When Masha Mironova alights in Moscow at the turn of the century, with a modest inheritance and a determination to shed her provincial Siberian upbringing, she becomes Columbine: reckless and daring-and with the dramatic outfits to prove it. In her quest for danger and passion, Columbine soon discovers the Lovers of Death-a small gathering of poets who conduct séances to determine death's next chosen lover. Once named at a séance, the chosen one must await three signs from death before taking their own life. The resulting string of suicides has taken Moscow by storm, becoming fodder for sensational media coverage and widespread hysteria. As the group's numbers steadily dwindle, a mysterious newcomer appears.
