From sun-warmed coast of California to the frozen plains of Siberia, a costly war will be waged. Allies will turn into enemies, brother will fight brother, and only the strongest and bravest will survive the turning of the world. Will Aleksei have what it takes? Or will he fall to the enemy's wrath?
