Pilgrim of Fate – Curious Adventures of Brother Samuilo
The story of a young man from the Balkans who at fourteen opened his mouth and spoke. From a lovable mute in his childhood to an incredible journey into adulthood, Dino wears the robe of a monk, the uniform of a soldier, and the coat of the royal diplomat.
"I'm back to my original status of an idiot. Much older I never will be, not much wiser, but with lots of memories to share. Now that I can talk, if you are willing to listen, before they execute me, I will tell you my story."
Pilgrim of Fate, Volume 1.
