From the author: "Riian's purpose in life was to cause death in his service to the Evergraves family empire. Their enemies were his targets, and he killed without regret, until one mistake cost him his life. Now, as a newly born clone, Riian is still their assassin, but must regain their trust after his predecessor’s failure. When a rival assassin targets the family holdings, Riian rushes out to meet him. The thought of proving himself fuels his ambition, even as fragmented memories of his past tempt him with the truth of how he died. His enemy holds the missing pieces to the puzzle, and Riian is faced with a terrible decision; making the same mistake twice or betray what he knows is right."
