Blades of Winter: A Novel of the Shadowstorm

Alamasi is a clever writer who, based on this opening salvo of the Shadowstorm series, holds much promise. The second installment Hammer of Angels will hopefully even out as the series progresses and much of the world’s foundation has been established in Blades of Winter.

In one of the most exciting debuts in years, G. T. Almasi has fused the intricate cat-and-mouse games of a John le Carré novel with the brash style of comic book superheroes to create a kick-ass alternate history that reimagines the Cold War as a clash of spies with biological, chemical, and technological enhancements.
