dead days. These are the days between Christmas and New Years.
Days when spirits roam and magic prevails. And in a European city
in the late 18th century, Valerian is desparate. He is running out
of time. With his servant, a young boy with no name, and Boy's friend
Willow, they attempt to find the book that will save Valerian. The
search will not be easy. They will come upon strange and mysterious
sights along the way. Through graveyards and tunnels under the city,
the three must find the book before the end of the dead days. Since,
the end of the dead days signal the end of Valerian.
