Happy Release Day!

Sasha's story is finally out there in the world! Find out what happens after The Exiled Otherkin in The Assassin's Legacy.

*The Assassin's Legacy can be read out of order with no problems, but there will be spoilers from The Exiled Otherkin.

He hasn’t been Aleksandr Sergeyevich Volonov, legendary monster-hunting assassin for ten years. Now, he is only Sasha, charming deckhand on a merchant airship so recently destroyed by pirates.

All he wants is to find another job and keep moving. But that simple plan is thwarted when his sister sends an assassin to murder him. His only choice is to return to Saint Petersburg and renounce his claim to his family’s title.

Trapped by his late father’s machinations, Sasha finds himself surrounded by death threats, engaged to a brutal villainess, shadowed by his cheeky assassin, and forced to lead the organization bent on eliminating all supernatural creatures from the Russian Empire.

As he struggles to keep hold on the man he is, Sasha must face who he used to be in this modern steampunk fantasy adventure full of folklore, banter, and artifice.

What are the critics saying?

“⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Wonderful characters and gorgeous settings!...With secrets and just the right amount of sizzle, Lieber's latest steampunk fantasy has something for everyone.”

M.K. Wiseman, author of Sherlock Holmes & the Ripper of Whitechapel

The Assassin’s Legacy...incorporated adventure, action, magic, and elements of romance to make a gripping novel. I held my breath for the most part. Betrayal, the ambitious nature of humans, family politics, and the quest for power were on full display.” Readers' Favorite

“Lieber's choice of a Russian setting stands out within the genre. And just as refreshing as this choice is, so too is the writing easy to navigate and crisp with detail... The storyline is engaging and should keep readers turning the pages.” US Review of Books

“D. Lieber excels in crafting a fantasy steeped in intrigue, diabolical threats, changing interpersonal relationships, and Russian culture… Its special blend of intrigue, fantasy, and psychological self-inspection will enthrall readers to the end.” Midwest Book Review, D. Donovan, Senior Editor

    D. Lieber has a wanderlust that would make a butterfly envious. When she isn’t planning her next physical adventure, she’s recklessly jumping from one fictional world to another. Her love of reading led her to earn a Bachelor’s in English from Wright State University.

    Beyond her skeptic and slightly pessimistic mind, Lieber wants to believe. She has been many places—from Canada to England, France to Italy, Germany to Russia—believing that a better world comes from putting a face on “other.” She is a romantic idealist at heart, always fighting to keep her feet on the ground and her head in the clouds.

    Lieber lives in Wisconsin with her husband (John) and cats (Yin and Nox).
