From a published poet, comic book creator, and now first-time novelist comes a story of a woman who lives to kill. In author Adrian English’s Queen of Assassins, readers will follow the journey of Malia, a trained assassin who is about to encounter her biggest challenge.

Malia is the best assassin in the world—an orphan raised by gypsies and trained by the Assassins’ Guild. The only link to her past is a medallion. Although she kills without question, she considers her past a mystery. Unknown to her, she will soon come across an enemy that will lead her on a path to self-discovery.

Lord Randall is the knight commander of Anysia. Common-born, he aspired to rule the land, but there were a few people in his way. A simple assassination leads to an upheaval of the world and Malia’s life. She will discover herself, lose loved ones, and learn the meaning of vengeance. She will be an assassin, love-slave, princess, and then, finally, queen of the assassins. However, Lord Randall’s schemes are still very much a threat to her and many others. When his plots harm her dearest ones, will she be able to resolve to stop him and find peace within herself? Queen of Assassins tells all.
