Tanya and the Host make a break for it while Gabe seeks redemption in the latest episode of The Witch Who Came in from the Cold, the spellbinding online serial that mixes conspiracy, suspense, and sorcery like a collaboration between John le Carre and Neil Gaiman.
A high-stakes cat-and-mouse game unfolds across the frozen streets of Prague as Tanya and Nadia employ spycraft and witchcraft alike to elude the agents of the Flame and get a terrified young Host to an Ice safehouse. But Gabe is also on their trail, attuned to the Host thanks to his own burgeoning magic and desperate to atone for past failures. What could possibly go wrong?
This episode is brought to you by Max Gladstone, who has done his fair share of vodka swigging. Na zdraví!
