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.
