Escape Was Never an Option. At the age of fourteen, Will learned the truth: He was born into a family of assassins. And, although he sought a peaceful existence, being their leader was his obligation and his curse. Bloodlines chronicles the Fateson family, a group of highly trained assassins with a 400-year history. In the beginning, the family was dedicated to eliminating only targets of great evil, but the noble traditions of the family became corrupted, and now they sell their services to the highest bidder. Will, their new leader, soon discovers the evil within his family. With no desire to fight the ones he loves, he chooses to fake his own death in an attempt to escape. For over a decade he eludes them; he finds love and happiness. But one unlucky night, one chance meeting with the wrong man, and one fatal error would change his life forever. Bloodlines is a fascinating story of betrayal, love, and desire for justice.
