“A rollicking, high-stakes adventure with action tailor-made for the movies.” —Brian Staveley, author of The Emperor’s Blades
“Smart and surprising—fun and fascinating speculation grounded in familiar history, a rich and textured variation on the magical arts, and complex characters struggling to fight the good fight. I loved it." —Kirsten Beyer, New York Times Bestselling author of Children of the Storm
“The Dark Arts series hits the ground running. Exciting and smart, David Mack's secret history of World War II and the occult heroes and villains that fought it will keep you up well past midnight.” —R. S. Belcher, author of The Six-Gun Tarot
“An epic thrill ride, taking us deep into a compelling, hypnotic vision of history as it might have been. Powerful, fast paced, and engaging.” —Ilana C. Myer, author of Last Song Before Night
"An exciting, secret struggle of occult powers and military action. Can't wait for the next one!" —Richard Baker, author of Valiant Dust
“Propulsive, with well-crafted characters and cinematic set pieces culled from the war's most momentous crossroads. Equal parts brimstone and gunpowder, the book deftly mixes the tropes of high fantasy into a semirealistic portrayal of WWII, resulting in an entertaining scenario that wouldn't be out of place in a video game or a spirited match of Dungeons & Dragons. A complex, entertaining fantasy that sets loose a 'chosen one' hero arc among the dogs of war.” —Kirkus Reviews
