Is The Young Assassin Real or Just a Myth?

Share Article

New book tells a gripping tale about a teenage killer-for-hire.

Elusive as the night, he moves stealthily, killing each target and anyone who stands in his way. Some say he is a myth. But no one knows for sure for none have lived to tell the tale of their encounter with The Young Assassin...

Sixteen-year-old Reed is an ace archer with cold eyes—a killer’s eyes. To the rest of the world, he is like any other teenager. Yet he’s living a double life as The Young Assassin. Trained by a former assassin, his killing instinct is deadly, without any hesitation. He accomplishes each mission with precision, often recklessly, leaving no witnesses behind. When Isabel Wooden is kidnapped to threaten her father to create a weapon of mass destruction, Reed steps in, becoming a myth no more. But the mission becomes complicated when the government intervenes and Reed begins to feel some emotional attachment to Isabel.

Will Reed remain unscathed in the bloody aftermath or will he once again lurk in the shadows living out the myth of The Young Assassin? Packed with nonstop action and exciting sequences, this gripping book by Scott Reed will keep readers at the edge of their seats page after page. This book will be featured at this year’s California Library Association Book Exhibit in Sacramento, CA on November 12-15, 2010. For more information, log on to
