Assassin: A Study in Black

By Simon Corn

Fantasy | eBook


Alex Black lifted his bruised face as he heard his brother groan when Lord Sirap’s blade penetrated Gideon’s defences and implanted itself in Gideon’s stomach. Their eyes met and Gideon smiled and slowly nodded as his blood spilled onto the black and white marble dance floor inside of the great fort. Every fibre in Alex’s being wanted to reach out and retire Gideon himself but as the light faded from his brother’s eyes a small piece of Alex died with it. Alex closed his eyes and heard the screaming as Lord and Lady Black were dispatched by his friend Alara Du Preeze and then he felt the cold embrace of Sable as she whisked him away from the great fort and into her world. “I’m your mother Alex.” Alex awoke in a new world he barely understood, one filled with political intrigue, underground fight clubs and nothing but pain and hurt. He threw the sheets off of the bed and ran to open the window to let the freezing night’s air cool his body, but the adrenaline was coursing through his veins and he screamed a single word at the full moon that hung over the city skyline… “Lucinda!” Sable looked up as she heard the scream echo around her mansion and locked eyes with the only other female that she trusted, “Are you ready?” “Indeed!” “Very well, if he fails he dies.” “He’ll probably die anyway.”

I spent most of my adult life knowing that there was a good story sitting in the back of my mind, and when I left the crazy world of corporate casinos I tied myself to my laptop and stared at a blank screen for what seemed like a year. Then out of the blue the idea for the first book came to me in what I call a semi-dream. You know what I'm talking about, that state when you're neither awake nor asleep and anything is possible. I saw a young girl with the most amazing coloured eyes standing in the shadow of a black-clad man surrounded by three dragons, and Alara Du Preeze fizzed into being.
