A broken vow. An attempted murder in the dead of night. Will this retired monster hunter have to give up the life he's made to keep living?
He hasn't been Aleksandr Sergeyevich Volonov, legendary monster-hunting assassin for ten years. Now, he's only Sasha, charming deckhand on a merchant airship. Well, he was until pirates destroyed that ship. Before he can even find another position, 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's ever-present confidence wavers as he's surrounded by death threats on all sides. If that wasn't enough, he's forcibly engaged to a brutal villainess, who wants to use his name to take over the organization bent on eliminating all supernatural creatures from the Russian Empire. But at least he can amuse himself by provoking the beautiful but sharp-tongued assassin who turned his life upside down.
As he struggles to keep hold of the man he is, Sasha must face who he used to be in this steampunk fantasy adventure full of folklore, banter, and artifice.
