☆FEATURED PICK & WATTYS SHORTLISTED☆ An assassin with a heart of gold must purge the city of its shadows.


Hunted as a traitor by a ruthless organization of killers, Elyra Ross must flee her home under penalty of death. Starting a new life in a distant land is never easy, but Elyra has a plan: learn how to survive in Lazuli City, and only kill people who deserve it. Despite careful execution of her bad habit, it's only a matter of time before the story of a vigilante killer reaping justice in the Rose District - the heart of the capital city's underworld - draws the ire of people just as dangerous as her. Staying alive will require a careful wit as much as a sharp blade, but if Elyra can keep one step ahead of her hunters, she could become the most notorious assassin in the country of Alsoom - whether she likes it or not.
