An empty mind is a safe mind.

Yulia's father always taught her to hide her thoughts and control her emotions to survive the harsh realities of Soviet Russia. But when she's captured by the KGB and forced to work as a psychic spy with a mission to undermine the U.S. space program, she's thrust into a world of suspicion, deceit, and horrifying power. Yulia quickly realizes she can trust no one--not her KGB superiors or the other operatives vying for her attention--and must rely on her own wits and skills to survive in this world where no SEKRET can stay hidden for long.

From a party at the Soviet embassy to a showdown at Bar Vodnář , the mysterious mistress of the Flame heats up the latest episode of The Witch Who Came in from the Cold, the riveting new series set in an alternate Cold War where spycraft and witchcraft execute a deadly pas de deux.

When a Soviet socialite throws a party, all of fashionable Prague attends. But behind the glitter and flirtation, an intricate game of influence and power plays out in which secrets become weapons and friendships are only weaknesses to be exploited. Meanwhile, across town, a different but equally lethal game unfolds at Bar Vodnář, where Jordan must call upon all her magical mojo to defend her home turf.

This episode, brought to you by Cassandra Rose Clarke, draws back the curtain on the Flame, revealing a powerful new player in Prague's most perilous game.

Praise for The Witch Who Came in from the Cold:



"Those who like to mix magic, spycraft, and secret history should enjoy this—it may please fans of Stross’s Laundry series." —Locus Magazine



"Full of fast-paced, high-intensity action paired with magic at a level that has not been seen until now, with a cliff-hanger that lets readers know that the game is not over and has only just begun." —The San Francisco Book Review



"The Witch Who Came in from the Cold is a chilly evocation of a different kind of Cold War." —Charles Stross, author of the Laundry Files series



“Take a double shot of Le Carré, a dash of Deighton, a twist of Quiller, a splash of Al Stewart’s The Year of the Cat, throw in a jigger full of elemental magic, mix well ... and voilà! The Witch Who Came In From The Cold.” —Victor Milán, author of The Dinosaur Lords



"The occult love child of John le Carre and The Sandbaggers." —Marie Brennan, author of A Natural History of Dragons



"As soon as I saw that, I was instantly hooked, and the pilot jacked the intrigue to the max. Two female Soviet spy witches, an American spy with something weird drilling magical holes in his head, and a world of secrets within secrets in a locale where old-world myth and the Cold War face off, pedal to the metal . . . it’s awesome. Or as we said in 1970, Far out. " —Sherwood Smith, author of Crown Duel



"The installments are easy to read one at a time, but the tangles of alliances, secrets, and shocking double-crosses will have readers up all night mumbling, “Just one more.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

The Cold War gets magical when spies brush shoulders with sorcerers in this genre-defying serial created by Lindsay Smith and Max Gladstone.

This is the 6th episode in the second season of The Witch Who Came In From The Cold, a 13-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Fran Wilde.

The spies and sorcerers of Prague leave the shadows for the big Fight Night in Kazimir’s underground. Tanya seeks contact with Gabe while Nadia learns more about Van. Zerena goes shopping – and slumming.

Welcome to Prague, 1970: the epicenter in a Cold War of spies and sorcerers. The streets are a deadly chessboard on which the CIA and KGB make their moves, little dreaming that a deeper game is being played between the Consortium of Ice and the Acolytes of Flame, ancient factions of sorcery.

Gabe pokes into some dark corners, while Jordan gets an unexpected offer as the intricate shadow play of spycraft and witchcraft continues in the latest thrilling installment of The Witch Who Came in from the Cold.

Spurred on by the mystic hitchhiker in his brain, Gabe decides to do a little digging of his own into the Host’s fate. But his interest in the missing student has not gone unremarked by agents of the Flame and the KGB alike . . . to say nothing of Tanya herself, who is determined to discourage this brash young American with a talent for dabbling in matters that don't concern him.

This episode is brought to you by Lindsay Smith, who knows that some secrets might be scary, but they keep things spicy.
