It's 1765. 10 years before the American Revolutionary War in the north, Spanish forces plan to take control of the Louisiana Territory in the south...but they have yet to reckon with Aveline, a deadly Assassin who uses every weapon and well-honed skill in her arsenal to win freedom for her land and her people. Whether silently eliminating her enemies with vicious slow-motion chain kills or luring them into deadly traps, Aveline strikes mortal fear into the hearts of any who stand in her way. As an Assassin, Aveline finds herself on an unforgettable journey that will take her from the crowded streets and voodoo-haunted swamps of New Orleans to ancient Mayan ruins. She plays a pivotal role in the turbulent birth of the new nation and fights for freedom not only for herself, but for her fellow citizens, as well.
