Praise for the LADY LAZARUS series:

“An absolutely unique protagonist in an engaging tale set against the backdrop of the greatest clash of good and evil in human history. What’s not to love about LADY LAZARUS?” – New York Times bestselling author Jim Butcher
** “Lang crafts a creative and tense story as all of Europe awaits the September invasion of Poland. Lang is a writer to watch and is sure to have wide appeal of fans of Jim Butcher, Kat Richardson, and other urban fantasy A-listers.”** – Booklist (starred review)
