It's 1939. The Nazis have supermen, the British have demons, and one perfectly normal man gets caught in between
Raybould Marsh is a British secret agent in the early days of the Second World War, haunted by something strange he saw on a mission during the Spanish Civil War: a German woman with wires going into her head who looked at him as if she knew him.
When the Nazis start running missions with people who have unnatural abilities—a woman who can turn invisible, a man who can walk through walls, and the woman Marsh saw in Spain who can use her knowledge of the future to twist the present—Marsh is the man who has to face them. He rallies the secret warlocks of Britain to hold the impending invasion at bay. But magic always exacts a price. Eventually, the sacrifice necessary to defeat the enemy will be as terrible as outright loss would be.
Alan Furst meets Alan Moore in the opening of an epic of supernatural alternate history, the tale of a twentieth century like ours and also profoundly different.

Savage Worlds fans, rejoice!
The plot is an incredible amalgam of fantasy, savage pulp, and science fiction set in world war 2. I am actively converting this material for use in my Day After Ragnarok Savage Worlds game. A great read to be sure and a must for fans of weird science stories. Warlocks facing off against X-Men? Yes please!
This book was a great read and just kept getting more and more intense as it went along. Part spy story, part science-fiction, I was taken aback at the depth of character and my connection to them as the events of the story unfold. Can't wait to read parts two and three. I highly recommend this book, but it isn't a light read. Come prepared.
