With the romance of "Twilight", the suspense of "The Dresden Files", and the delicious thrills of "True Blood", the enthralling saga of "Magdalena Lazarus" unfolds. Descended from the legendary witch of Ein Dor, she alone holds the power to summon the angel Raziel and stop Hitler and his supernatural minions from unleashing total war in Europe. The Nazis have fighters more fearsome than soldiers, weapons more terrifying than missiles, and allies that even they fear: SS werewolves, the demon As model - who possesses a willing Adolf Hitler - and other supernatural creatures that are all literally hell-bent on preventing Magda from possessing the Book of Raziel, a magical text with the power to turn the tide against Hitler's vast war machine. Magda, young and rebellious, grew up in the cosmopolitan city of Budapest, unaware of her family's heritage. When her mother dies, Magda - ready or not - is the Lazarus who must face the evil that holds Europe in an iron grip. Unready to assume the mantle of her ancient birthright, but knowing that she must fight, she sets out across Europe searching for the Book.
Magda is desperate enough to endanger her soul by summoning the avenging angel Raziel. When she sees him in the glory of his celestial presence, her heart is utterly, completely lost...
