The Killing Knife (A Tale of the Assassin Without a Name #1-3)

About the Book

The Assassin Without a Name takes the jobs he wants, dispensing death, or mercy, as he sees fit. His is a life of luxury, with a glass of the finest wine in one hand and a killing knife in the other.

At least until the Jakaree, a group of death-dealing fanatics, arrive with plans to subsume the city of Alchester in permanent darkness. When the Assassin Without a Name's closest friend and former lover finds herself embroiled in their machinations, he sets out to give the death-dealers a true lesson in death that they'll never forget.

Enter a world of intrigue, adventure, magic, technology, and, of course, murder, as the Assassin Without a Name finds himself embroiled in a secret war where all is lost no matter who wins.

The Killing Knife compiles the first three stores in the Assassin Without a Name series, Fine Wine, Killing the Dead, and Night of Zealotry.

Get Book

The Killing Knife is available for free to members of my email list. Subscribing is a great way to keep up on my latest projects and get to know my writing. As a thank you, you'll not only get The Killing Knife but also The Hall of Riddles (An Alchemancer Prequel). Just as The Killing Knife will get you started with my Assassin Without a Name series, The Hall of Riddles is a good launching point into The Alchemancer series.
