The Assassin Without a Name series

The Assassin's Code is now available for pre-order! (updated 10/26/2023)

The next book in the Assassin Without a Name series of sword and sorcery adventure novels, The Assassin's Code, is now available for pre-order exclusively from Books by Scott Marlowe at all online retailers!

The Assassin's Code releases on October 22, 2024.

I'm keeping the release date a bit TBD at this point, though it will release in 2024. Once I have more info on the exact date, I will share that information.

Here's what The Assassin's Code is all about:

The Assassin’s Code is simple: Never let a job become personal and never have regrets.

It’s a code the Nameless Assassin has found malleable at times, but if the right people are dead, what does it matter? Unfortunately, some of the right people aren’t dead, and they’re beginning to pose a very real danger to the Assassin Without a Name’s way of life and to the people he cares about.

The Jakaree, emboldened by their alliance with a blood witch, are no longer content to work from the shadows. Meanwhile, the Warders, who operate in plain sight, redouble their efforts to find the mysterious Heart of the Dragon and advance their plan to destroy the Jakaree. Never mind that they may destroy the entire city of Alchester along with them.

Such grand and destructive plans have not gone unnoticed by the authorities, who place Inspector William Wright in charge of stopping all nefarious activity perpetrated by these organizations. He’ll need the Assassin Without a Name’s help if he’s to have any chance at success.

Blood feuds, dark sorcery, and secretive agents with diablerie in mind? Breaking the code was never so easy.

In the meanwhile, be sure to check out the second book in the series, The Assassin's Cunning.

Join my reader's group and get The Hall of Riddles (An Alchemancer Prequel) and The Assassin's Dilemma (An Assassin Without a Name Prequel) as a welcome gift.
