  Chapter 1: A Knife in the Dark

  How much blood will I shed tonight? How many people will die by my hand? At least none will be innocent. Such thoughts went through the mind of the veiled assassin as she surveyed the tavern from down the street. The moon hid behind the clouds, as if it knew what was to occur, leaving only the seven stars high above to faintly illuminate the veiled assassin’s lithe figure in the dark alleyway.

  By all accounts, her target was not going to submit to the authority of her master without a fight. It was a shame that so many talented killers would have to die, but such was the command of her master, and she would carry out his will.
