Thief’s Gambit, the next, fifth, and longest Assassin Without a Name story to date, is officially released!
It’s great getting this one out there. I love the direction the story is going in and I love the characters.
I did an interview for GG Collins a couple of weeks ago in which she asked me what Thief’s Gambit was all about. Here’s my answer:
Thief’s Gambit is a rip-roaring escapade where readers find out why the Assassin Without a Name, well, doesn’t have a name. It’s much more revealing about the character than any of the previous stories, and it moves the overall storyline along nicely as we find out that the Warders, who have seemed benign up to this point, may not have the good people of Alchester’s best interests at heart after all. Elizabeth West, the title character’s love interest and the thief referred to in the title, is back, leveling insults at my main character while making sure he doesn’t get himself killed. The series has been a lot of fun to write and this story, I think, is the best yet.
Thief’s Gambit continues the story, but it’s by no means over. The next story is “in process” now, going through initial editing. It’s titled “Assassin’s Justice” and should be out soon.
Thief's Gambit is available as part of The Assassin's Blade compilation.
