An Assassin of the Iron Will goes about fulfilling his misson in all it's grisly detail.

Wow. What an intense short story that was. It leaves you with so many questions about the gritty world and backstory that surrounds the Black City. It's an amazing excercise in small-detail world building that gives a taste of something in the grimdark style that, while it does feature ruthless killing, doesn't rub all the foul details in your face. As a reader, you're credited with having enough imagination to know it's bad without being told as much in excessive and/or explicit words. You won't get any great charcters here, but as an action-focused sequence it works very well.

There may not be any more stories set in this universe at the moment, but it really shows off the author's ability to create action and intrigue in such a short space of time.
