Overview

Death's Head Legion: Part Two of three in The Spear of Destiny, the first novel in a new steampunk, horror, alternate history, action-adventure series set in a 1920s where the Nazis have begun their subjugation of the world using the occult, advanced science, and a holy relic with awesome powers.

And don't miss the other parts of this serialized novel—Part One: Black Sun Reich and Part Three: Shadows Will Fall.

Trey Garrison recaptures the unapologetic adventure, wonder and excitement of the classic pulp fiction of the 1930s and 1940s, blending elements of steampunk with deeply-researched historical fiction and a good dose of humor. The novel also explores major philosophical and moral issues relevant to our contemporary world: the trade-off between security and liberty, the morality of preemptive war, and what fundamentally separates good from evil.

The North American continent is made up of several rival nations, and a Cold War is building between them. The Nazis rose to power a decade earlier. People travel by airship and powerful organizations calculate with Babbage's Difference Engine. The Nazis have hatched a plot to raise a legion of undead soldiers.

Enter Sean Fox Rucker, Jesus D'Anconia Lago, two Great War veterans and freelance pilots who are pulled into the quest. They are joined by a brash Greek merchant, a brilliant Jewish cowboy, and the woman who once broke Rucker's heart. This ragtag band of reluctant, bickering, swashbuckling heroes soon is locked in a globe-spanning race against Nazi occultists, clockwork assassins, and a darkly charismatic commando. In a world where science and the supernatural coexist, and the monsters of legend are as real necromancers who summon them from dark realms, our heroes alone stand before the rising darkness. But all their efforts may not be enough.

    Treystar DESCRIPTION OF CAMP

    In the middle of a lush forest lays a clearing. To the west is a range of hills. To the east is ocean. The clearing is surrounded by tall ferns, hiding it from view. Near the entrance is a tree with thick, flat, spreading branches. The branches have been padded with moss and the tree is where the warriors sleep. On the other side of the entrance is a similar tree, but a bit smaller, for the apprentices. Next to the warrior's tree is a small area enclosed in brambles. Inside the ground is cushioned with soft, thick moss. This is the elder's den. In the back of the camp is a thick dome of brambles, the inside walls lined with grass and leaves. On the ground is a carpet of soft moss. Lining the walls are large nests of thick, squishy moss covered with pelts, fur side up. This safe haven is the nursery. Next to the nursery is a dense willow tree. Inside the low, sweeping branches is the medicine den. Herbs are stored in small caves in the trunk. There are also a few nests in the back. Between the med den and the apprentice's tree is a moss covered boulder. This is highrock. Below is a sheet of ivy. Through the ivy is a short tunnel leading to a small, cool cave containing a thuck, soft moss nest. This is the leader's den. In the middle of camp is a circle of rocks. In the middle is the fresh-kill pile. Next to camp, a clear stream burbles through the forest, sparkling in the filtered sunlight.
