In 1981, DJ and Vietnam vet Max August was thrust into a hidden war between the forces of chaos and order. In that war, magick – real, potent magick- was the chief weapon. Mentored by legendary alchemist Cornelius Agrippa, Max was an eager student. Before Agrippa died in 1985 – having lived for five hundred years – Max learned the secret to stopping the aging of his body, making himself “timeless.” Nearly three decades later, he saves Dr. Pamela Blackwell from a magickal dart that would have killed her. Her life-saving research has made her an enemy of the FRC, a cabal intent on world domination. From San Francisco to Barbados to the shores of Suriname, Max and Pam must fight off magick-wielding assassins, legions of zombies, and the FRC’s more mundane weapon – corporate clout and friends in high places. Max may be powerful and immortal, but he’s not indestructible. He’ll need all his powers, his hard-earned fighting skills, and Pam’s help to prevent a genocidal apocalypse.
