This site is all about my Assassin Without a Name series of fantasy assassin tales. Each month or so I’ll post a new story in the series. Some of the stories are short, some are long. But they’re all part of a larger tale, so start with Fine Wine and move on from there.
As for what the Assassin Without a Name series is about, here’s a bit from the man himself:
I had a name once, same as everyone else, but after one glorious night of murder it was no longer safe to use. Small sacrifice for ensuring my sister’s safety, I figured. So now I don’t use one. In my line of work, it’s not necessary anyway. What is my line of work? Murder, of course, though I fancy myself more than just an assassin. Gentleman, thief, wine connoisseur, adventurer, a man of a thousand names and none. I’m all of those things and more.
My life was about as normal as one could hope until one particular job came along. Kill the artificer, steal the plans, make an exchange. Simple enough, until a band of fanatical priests ambushed and tried to kill me. Turns out the plans have something to do with a source of dark energy. The priests aren’t the only ones interested in it, either. I’ve no interest in being a hero, but I’ll do whatever I have to do to keep my city–and my sister–safe. There’s already blood on my hands. What’s a little more?
It’s a fun series to write and I hope a fun one to read.
