Milo Volkohne, orphan, criminal, conscript, and unwilling warlock could tell you but you might not like the answer.
It is 1936 and the Great War still rages on, with no armistice in 1918 when the Russian Empire crumbled in the fire and blood of stillborn revolution.
The hellish no man’s land has spread like a blight over Europe as grim, unyielding leaders promise a resolve of iron and no mercy, no peace, no hope.
It would take a miracle to save humanity, but as Milo would tell you: be careful what you wish for.
Plunging into a world of sorcery, treachery, and madness the world’s first wizard will bargain with monsters, human or otherwise, fight for his life, and dare to hope that he’s selling his soul for something worthwhile.
But is any price too high to end the War to end all Wars?
