Legacy of the Night

Mikhail Chernakov wants nothing more than to forget the past and his life on the streets. After returning from university in a foreign land, he hopes to use his newfound education to obtain a respectable job and a life of luxury. Instead, he ends up joining a secret band of assassins called the Order of Tugarin.

Tatiana Malinovskaya wants nothing more than to trade her lavish lifestyle in the palace for one of adventure. It's not as though proper ladies should have claws randomly sprouting from their fingers anyhow. So, when approached with the promise of a new partner, Tatiana happily returns to her duties in the Order of Tugarin.

When Tatiana and Mikhail are paired together to take on the worst of Ravinia, they end up coming across a criminal plot organized by their country's greatest enemy. Determined to find the cause of the threat before it's too late, they need to figure out how to get past their differences and work together. For if they cannot, their country will fall to its doom.
