It seems that I’m not the only one excited about David Mack’s new release, THE MIDNIGHT FRONT, the first in his epic Dark Arts series for Tor Books. Amazon has named it one of the Best Books of the Month: Science Fiction & Fantasy. Sci-Fi Bulletin calls it, “A terrific opening salvo in this rewriting of the 20th Century.” Kirkus Reviews calls it, “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.” Check it out!
THE MIDNIGHT FRONT by David Mack
From New York Times bestselling author David Mack comes a visionary World War II-era adventure. The Midnight Front is the epic first novel in the Dark Arts series.
On the eve of World War Two, Nazi sorcerers come gunning for Cade but kill his family instead. His one path of vengeance is to become an apprentice of The Midnight Front―the Allies’ top-secret magickal warfare program―and become a sorcerer himself.
Unsure who will kill him first―his allies, his enemies, or the demons he has to use to wield magick―Cade fights his way through occupied Europe and enemy lines. But he learns too late the true price of revenge will be more terrible than just the loss of his soul―and there’s no task harder than doing good with a power born of ultimate evil.
