Destiny Books
(No Broomsticks. Yep. None.)


This book begins with a prologue worthy of the best traditions of the 1930’s pulps: a rare and secretive lineage of ancient masters, a 3,000-year legacy, a handwritten manual passed down through the ages, terrible vows of secrecy . . . at any moment I expected Fu Manchu to appear on scene, stroking his moustache in a sinister fashion.
