Ticonderoga Publications is extremely pleased to announce the signing of Robert Ashby's fantasy novel The Assassin.
The Assassin is the first book in Ashby's The Kingbreaker Chronicles series.
The Assassin follows the coming of age of Lydia Estrella, as she becomes an assassin in the employ of Lord Zhe, the crown prince of the Empire of Nara. The daughter of a merchant captain, Lydia is thrust into a world of intrigue, corruption, magic and, of course, murder.
"It's a great reading experience, and exciting to be working with a new talent,” Ticonderoga Editor Russell B Farr said.
"Robert Ashby is a natural storyteller, crafting a fascinating and engaging new fantasy world that we hope readers will love to share," Russell B Farr added.
The Assassin is scheduled for publication in early 2014. The novel will be available in limited edition hardcover, hardcover and trade editions.
