From a New York Times bestselling author comes an action fantasy series like no other. Welcome to the world of Caine: Assassin. Hero. Superstar . . .
The perfect assassin, the perfect revenge.
On Earth, Hari Michaelson was a superstar. But on Overworld, he was the assassin Caine. Real monarchs lived and died at his hands and entire governments were overthrown - all for the entertainment of millions back on Earth.
But now Hari, stripped of his identity as Caine, must fight his greatest battle: against the powerful corporate masters of Earth and the faceless masses who are killing everything he loves. Enemies old and new array themselves against him. And Hari is just one man - alone, half-crippled, powerless.
They say he doesn't have a chance. They are wrong.

'A gritty, bloody, deeply touching work of genius' - Scott Lynch
'Hands down one of the most bad-ass, brutal - and brilliant - fantasy series of the last double-decade. You know this if you're already reading it. If you're not already reading it, then good lord, it's time you found out - John Scalzi
'If you like really really gritty, dark fantasy like George RR Martin, Richard Morgan (Takashi Kovaks books) or ESPECIALLY Joe Abercrombie, you should get this book' - Felicia Day
Matthew Woodring Stover's 'Acts of Caine' series is hands down one of the most bad-ass, brutal - and brilliant - fantasy series of the last double-decade. You know this if you're already reading it. If you're not already reading it, then good lord, it's time you found out - John Scalzi
Blends science, magic, and martial arts into an action-packed tale of adventure and heroism - LIBRARY JOURNAL
The characters are stunning, the pose sharp and all round with the story arc was something that I just couldn't put down. Add to this almost magical storytelling, some great twists and an author who knows how to hook the reader not only with the stunning set up but emotionally into the character all round makes this a must read for me as a fantasy fan. Great stuff. - Falcata Times
