Click to Read an Excerpt
A bad-ass veteran fighter is transferred into the body of a child in the urban Tokyo of a parallel world, an epicenter of clan wars, a dangerous place where you have to watch your step, your back, and what you say.

A kid with the experiences, thoughts, and beliefs of an adult mercenary now goes by the name of Shinji. In a daylight, he pretends to be an ordinary student in a school, full of heirs of powerful clans and tries to figure out his studies and handle teenage relationships. At night, against the backdrop of a Tokyo teeming with shady goings-on, Shinji is a skillful agent who possesses neither weaknesses nor mercy.

He has his mind, strong beliefs, and will to fight for power, money, and respect in this new world. He will show everyone what he is made of and the criminal bosses will know and fear his mask. Still, the powers that be of this world are not willing to share their thrones with anyone and are prepared to spare no expense to get rid of this threat. While the deadly conflict is quickly escalating, Shinji has to carefully hide his personality under a mask, so as not to endanger his daily life, because he is not ready for an open conflict just yet… His road lays through shadows, his steps are silent, his moves are deadly.

As you know, rogues do it in the darkness, rogues do it from behind.

About the Author

Nicholas Metelsky: "When I was a child, I had 11 classes at school in the village of Chuchkovo, which, sadly, doesn't exist anymore. I then went into the army and thought I would become a security guard right after. Humble life experiences, am I right? My life had been nothing special up until that point. It had been pretty ordinary. But because I read so much as a child, my love for storytelling began to grow. It would never leave me.

So, naturally, I started writing down stories. Eventually, I was hired at a bookshop. What a dream! I worked hard and with diligence. Every day I would go to the store at 6 a.m. and leave at 10 p.m. It was taking a toll on me. I couldn't even read or write books. The irony is not lost on me. I had always wanted to push myself and write a full length novel, so I thought, 'why not give it a chance?' And I did! I quit the bookshop and started writing 'Changing Masks.'

I love how the series turned out, and I love discussing it with my friends and other peers in Moscow".
