Is there really any way to ask forgiveness for trying to end the life of the person you love?
Nearly everything about Patrick Galathea’s life has been a lie orchestrated by the Kakodemoss. The same Kakodaemon terrorist group that murdered his parents, turned him into an unwitting sleeper assassin, and performed untold experiments on him for fifteen years. Experiments that have left him questioning everything he thought he knew about himself in the wake of the deadly Embassy attacks.
But to have any chance of making amends for the unthinkable act he committed against his wife, he’ll first have to figure out where the fabrication ends, and his true self begins. And accept that he was forged into a deadly weapon designed to kill…and likely already has.
The road to redemption is fraught with even more perilous secrets than Patrick has faced yet. Because to unravel the final dark mysteries of his past, Patrick will have to place his trust in the most questionable person of all—his fabricated self.

I faced Kira—the wooden bokken in my hands. And I knew, without being able to remember, that we had done this an uncountable number of times in the past. And the familiarity of it was unsettling.
Kira rolled her shoulders back, adjusting her grip on two wooden wakizashi, never taking her eyes from mine. Watching me. Daring me to move first. It was like staring down a panther.
I sucked in a deep breath, and then let it out slowly. I couldn’t just stand here all day, might as well get it over with.
Yeah, any day now would be great, Aku said snarkily from within my head.
“Shut up,” I grumbled under my breath.
“What?” Kira asked, confusion tinting her face.
“Nothing,” I said, shaking my head clear before I dipped it an inch or so. “You ready?”
A deadly smile spread across her lips. “Always.”
And with a jolt the two of us were off across the floor, swirling like a storm. Me a mirror to her movements like a dark shadow. Our wooden blades an extension of our arms—our souls.
We moved past each other like water, our wooden blades slicing through the air. Lashing at each other in vicious, lightning-quick movements. Like two whirling storms of death.
Something whizzed past my ear and I shifted my body to the side, but it did nothing to shatter my concentration. I couldn’t falter, couldn’t let her get an opening. Kira moved with deadly force, her movements so smooth and fluid they were like a beautiful dance. A dance of death.
I took a gamble and deliberately left an opening as I swung my wooden sword past her. Kira took the bait, and flicked her wooden blade toward me. But she extended herself just the tiniest bit too far, giving me an opening. My bokken slammed into her wooden wakizashi and I knew in that moment that she was going down.
I landed on top of Kira, my knees straddling her hips, my bokken to her throat. But I didn’t think for a second that I had won. Because I could feel her other wooden wakizashi against my gut.
A dangerous grin spread across her face when she saw that I realized she had me just as much as I had her. And it was then that I finally realized that she truly had been my perfect match. Not because I had loved her. Or because she was good for me. But because she was created, like me, to be a monster.
