With The Tempter, Lucia starts a trilogy of stories, which occur in small towns in Slovenia. After Trbovlje, a mining town where suddenly the Tempter appears, comes Bohinj, which brings a different atmosphere with its beautiful nature and touristic potential, and Ptuj, a well-known Catholic’s pilgrimage destination.
