LOS ANGELES - Feb. 27, 2014 - PRLog -- Women in combat? How about women parachuting into Nazi-occupied France under the cover of night, sabotaging railroads alongside resistance fighters, and keeping the path clear for the famous D-Day landings? “The Tower’s Alchemist,” by Alesha Escobar, is a fantasy mashup of magic, mayhem, and espionage, all with an underlying homage to a group of women who made real history.

“While most of us can recall basic facts from our high school lessons on World War II, very few have heard of the women of the Special Operations Executive (SOE),” Escobar said. “British intelligence employed these female spies during a tumultuous time, and these women--ranging from an Indian princess to a flirtatious socialite--did very dangerous work.”

“The Tower’s Alchemist” follows the adventure of SOE spy, Isabella George, whose skills not only include hand-to-hand combat and infiltration, but the magical discipline of alchemy. In this alternate WWII, the occult really does work in the Nazis’ favor, and the Allies scramble to snatch up wizards trained by the benevolent yet aloof Gray Tower to help counter warlocks’ dangerous spells and bizarre creatures cutting down Ally troops.

However Isabella is tired and jaded, especially as friends disappear and are never heard from again. She embarks on what she hopes to be her final mission, which turns out to be her deadliest--someone within her organization has betrayed her, a vampiric warlock is stalking her in order to steal her powers, and the Gray Tower holds deadly secrets about her past.

Author Alesha Escobar, a native of Los Angeles, CA, writes fantasy books and blogs weekly at her site, aleshaescobar.com. She recently completed the final book of her Gray Tower Trilogy and will be releasing a short story in the “New Myths” anthology by HDWP Books.

Women’s History Month is March 1st-31st.
