The Island of the Magicians! A very long time ago, this mysterious and forgotton land was the kingdom of spells and poisonous charms. Here reigned Circe and her sisters! The rare travelers, such as Ulysses and his companions, who had once approached these shores, bewitched by the fatal beauty and the supernatural powers of the master in the place, had never returned... Time has passed. Circe, erased from the memory of men, has finally faded into the mist of time.
But one morning, two unwitting adventurers, modern-day Ulysses, pathetic castaways unaware of the danger, are washed up by the sea on an island beach. The time has come for the fearsome and seductive magicians to emerge from their long sleep!
