“Morgant the Razor was once the most feared assassin in three nations. But now he has retired, and masquerades as a simple artist.
Yet he cannot escape his notoriety so easily, and the man who kills the Razor will receive fame and riches beyond count.
But Morgant did not become the most feared assassin in three nations by remaining idle…” (description from Goodreads)
This story is filled with great sword-fighting action. Moeller created two well-developed assassins in this story, and that’s not an easy thing to do in a short story. The author gave just enough information about the characters in order to connect with them, while not overloading the story, thus preserving the flow. There’s also a great, unexpected ending that increased my enjoyment overall.

About the Author:
Standing over six feet tall, Jonathan Moeller has the piercing blue eyes of a Conan of Cimmeria, the bronze-colored hair a Visigothic warrior-king, and the stern visage of a captain of men, none of which are useful in his career as a computer repairman, alas.
He has written the “Demonsouled” trilogy of sword-and-sorcery novels, and continues to write the “Ghosts” sequence about assassin and spy Caina Amalas, the “$0.99 Beginner’s Guide” series of computer books, and numerous other works.
