The Cold War gets magical when spies brush shoulders with sorcerers in this genre-defying serial created by Lindsay Smith and Max Gladstone.

This is the 4th episode in the second season of The Witch Who Came In From The Cold, a 13-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing. This episode written by Cassandra Rose Clarke.

Big magic is in motion as the Flame attempt to capture the freed Elements, and Zerena seeks to impress her old mentor. Tanya and Gabe team up to chase leads (and check up on a certain creature of clay). Sparks fly in the boxing ring when Nadia faces a newcomer.

Welcome to Prague, 1970: the epicenter in a Cold War of spies and sorcerers. The streets are a deadly chessboard on which the CIA and KGB make their moves, little dreaming that a deeper game is being played between the Consortium of Ice and the Acolytes of Flame, ancient factions of sorcery.
