Assassin. Soldier. Arrow.
That is who Vasic is, who he will always be. His soul drenched in blood, his conscience heavy with the weight of his past, he exists in the shadows, far from hope. His people live in fear, threatened by the murderous insanity of a lethal contagion. To stop the wave of death, Vasic must complete the simplest and most difficult mission of his life.

But as the world turns to screaming crimson, even Ivy’s fierce will may not be enough to save Vasic from the cold darkness…

Nalini Singh was born in Fiji and raised in New Zealand. She spent three years living and working in Japan, and travelling around Asia before returning to New Zealand – although she’s always plotting new trips. She has worked as a lawyer, a librarian, a candy factory general hand, a bank temp and an English teacher, not necessarily in that order. Some people might call that inconsistency, but she calls it grist for the writer’s mill. You can learn more about her novels, and sign up to her newsletter, at
