He hasn’t been Aleksandr Sergeyevich Volonov, legendary monster-hunting assassin for ten years. Now, he is only Sasha, charming deckhand on a merchant airship so recently destroyed by pirates.

All he wants is to find another job and keep moving. But that simple plan is thwarted when his sister sends an assassin to murder him. His only choice is to return to Saint Petersburg and renounce his claim to his family’s title.

Trapped by his late father’s machinations, Sasha finds himself surrounded by death threats, engaged to a brutal villainess, shadowed by his cheeky assassin, and forced to lead the organization bent on eliminating all supernatural creatures from the Russian Empire.

As he struggles to keep hold on the man he is, Sasha must face who he used to be in this modern steampunk fantasy adventure full of folklore, banter, and artifice.


I didn’t bother to light the lamp as I entered the small room. I just stretched out on the bed, grateful the whiskey had relaxed me enough for sleep. Letting out a long sigh, I closed my eyes and waited for dreams to take me. After a few even breaths, my ears pricked as a floorboard creaked ever so softly to my left. I forced myself to continue breathing slowly, though my instinct was to freeze. The strike came from above, and I was barely able to avoid it by rolling to the side. Fabric tore as a knife sank deep into the blankets beneath me. My hand wrapped around a slender wrist in the dark while my attacker tried to reclaim the weapon. In a fluid motion, the wrist in my grasp twisted and thin fingers clenched my wrist. I jerked my assailant’s arm and pulled her off-balance onto the free spot I’d just occupied before she got a chance to yank the blade out with her other hand. Twisting my hips, I wrapped my legs around her neck, putting her in a choke hold. Her arms flailed at my hips to no avail as I squeezed my thighs.

“Who sent you?” I asked the assassin in my mother tongue.

She growled in frustration but did not answer.

“Was it the Ubyzniki? My father? Who?”

“Go to Hell,” she spat in Russian.
