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? *** 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 Assassin's Blade is a compilation of the first seven Assassin Without a Name fantasy adventure stories. It includes: 1. Fine Wine 2. Killing the Dead 3. Night of Zealotry 4. The Goddard Affair 5.

Kerrion's daughter, the infant Queen Kerra-Manu, has saved her kingdom from conquest, and her father has driven the Contara from her land. Chiana is Regent, and the assassin and his queen are the enemy king's prisoners, but the Queen's Blade refuses to serve his foe. Not even imprisonment and the humiliation of the jailer's whip will sway Blade, who defies Kerrion to force his hand. Unless he slays the Cotti princes who plot against his queen, however, she will die. Blade does not believe that Kerrion loves Minna-Satu and saved her from the Queen's Cup to wed her. Cotti Kings have many wives and concubines, and treat women as chattel. Only the Queen herself can convince him of the truth of her feelings and Kerrion's, and then Cotti Princes will taste the assassin's blade to ensure her safety and win Blade's freedom, but powerful men plot his demise and that of the infant queen. When Blade returns to Jashimari, Prince Armin hunts him down and attempts to force him to name his client, but the assassin will die before he betrays his Guild. Once more, the fate of a kingdom and two queens rests in the hands of the Queen's Blade.

Un corazón de hielo. Una voluntad de acero. Te presentamos a una asesina. Te presentamos a Celaena Sardothien. Bella. Letal. Destinada a la grandeza. En las tenebrosas minas de sal de Endovier, una muchacha de dieciocho años cumple cadena perpetua. Es una asesina profesional, la mejor en lo suyo, pero ha cometido un error fatal. La han capturado. El joven capitán Westfall le ofrece un trato: la libertad a cambio de un enorme sacrificio. Celaena debe representar al príncipe en un torneo a muerte, en el que deberá luchar con los asesinos y ladrones más peligrosos del reino. Viva o muerta, Celaena será libre. Tanto si gana como si pierde, está a punto de descubrir su verdadero destino. Pero,¿qué pasará entretanto con su corazón de asesina? ENGLISH DESCRIPTION After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin. Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom. Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best. Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

It was meant to be high drama, not murder, but someone's switched the daggers. The man's death, in plain view of two serving police officers. The man was not meant to die; the daggers were only theatrical props, plastic and harmless. A summer's night, a production of Julius Caesar among the ruins of an Anglo-Saxon fort. Detective Inspector Tremayne is there with his sergeant, Clare Yarwood. The assassination scene, the man collapses to the ground, Brutus defending his actions; Mark Antony's rebuke. They're a disparate group, the amateur actors. One's an estate agent, another, an accountant. And then there is the teenage man, the gay, the funeral director. And what about the women? They could be involved. They've all got a secret, but which of those on the stage wanted Gordon Mason, the actor who had portrayed Caesar, dead?

“A fascinating history . . . The Medieval conflict between Christians and Muslims has many similarities to the Middle East today.”—Firetrench The Ismaili Assassins were an underground group of political killers who were ready to kill Christians and Muslims alike with complete disregard for their own lives. Under the powerful control of an enigmatic grand master, these devoted murderers often slayed their victims in public, cultivating their terrifying reputation. They assumed disguises and their weapon of choice was a dagger. The dagger was blessed by the grand master and killing with it was a holy and sanctified act; poison or other methods of murder were forbidden to the followers of the sect. Surviving a mission was considered a deep dishonor and mothers rejoiced when they heard that their Assassin sons had died having completed their deadly acts. Unsurprisingly, their formidable reputation spread far and wide. In 1253, the Mongol chiefs were so fearful of them that they massacred and enslaved the Assassins’ women and children in an attempt to liquidate the sect. The English monarch, Edward I, was nearly dispatched by their blades and Richard the Lionheart’s reputation was sullied by his association with the Assassins’ murder of Conrad of Montferrat. The Ismaili Assassins explores the origins, actions and legacy of this notorious sect. Enriched with eyewitness accounts from Islamic and Western sources, this important book unlocks the history of the Crusades and the early Islamic period, giving the reader entry into a historical epoch that is thrilling and pertinent. “An inherently fascinating, deftly written, and impressively informative read from beginning to end.”—Midwest Book Review

Dragon magic has faded from the lands of the Seven Kingdoms and the power they exercised over the elements has failed. Already Terum has reverted back to being covered by volcanic ash and great storms destroy ships and palaces alike all over the largest continent. Prince Tristan Vallious is born into this uncertain world and not unlike many children of royalty, he's arrogant and abusive. The King and Queen have no choice but to send him to the border under the command of his older brother. There he can work out his issues while defending his country against all kinds of creatures, both men and other of a less savory sort. Before he can assume his new post, he is attacked by a magical assassin, placing him in a coma. The Nightmare Spell used is a terrible fate and most die within a week of being plunged into their own worst fears, losing the will to live quickly. Tristan now stands at a crossroads and the weight of the world of both men and dragon rest on his shoulders.
