Rage of the Assassin, the final installment in the Assassin series, which began with King of Swords (if you don’t count Night of the Assassin, the prequel), is now available for preorder on a November 17th release date.

The Assassin series was my first, and it did rather well since first launching almost four years ago. Continues to sell briskly, for which I’m grateful.

Not much else to say about it except that it’s chock full of twists, turns, reversals, and the unexpected. I rather like how it’s turning out thus far (I’m in the middle of writing it), and anticipate it will be a reader favorite.

Here’s the cover. Probably wouldn’t hurt to preorder it. Just saying.

    And I’m still mad at you for what you did to Jasmine in Night. Poor girl, and then to put acid on her face! Will be waiting for this one to come out.

    Beyond psyched! Can’t wait to read it.

    Am so incredibly sad to see the end of this series. El Rey snatched my imagination and eventually also caught my heart. Maybe weird but true. Why have you decided to bring it all to an end? I’m sure there are more villains for him to dispose of in all this volatile and unstable world. What ever the answer is know I’ve enjoyed each and every outing. Thanks so much.

      It’s more that I’m on to other things. Only so many hours in the day. However I’m glad, and only somewhat alarmed, that El Rey found a place in your heart!

        Thanks for the explanation and for being only somewhat alarmed. Maybe you can keep him alive but dormant in the event Jet might need to hire him some time in the future. Never know when two assassins might be better than one. Sincerely I thank you for the books you turn out as they help relieve the infirmity and boredom that has come with my old age.
