Blades of Winter

by G. T. Almasi
Release date: August 23, 2012
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: science fiction, alternate history

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.
Nineteen-year-old Alix Nico, a self-described “million-dollar murder machine,” is a rising star in ExOps, a covert-action agency that aggressively shields the United States from its three great enemies: the Soviet Union, Greater Germany, and the Nationalist Republic of China. Rather than risk another all-out war, the four superpowers have poured their resources into creating superspies known as Levels.
Alix is one of the hottest young American Levels. That’s no surprise: Her dad was America’s top Level before he was captured and killed eight years ago. But when an impulsive decision explodes — literally — in her face, Alix uncovers a conspiracy that pushes her to her limits and could upset the global balance of power forever.
For it seems her father may still be alive, a prisoner of the Germans, handed over to them by a traitor in ExOps — a traitor who will stop at nothing to see Alix dead as well.
