Pieces of Hate

Book 1, The Assassins Series

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


During the Dark Ages, a thing named Temple slaughtered Gabriel's family. A man with snake eyes charged him to pursue the assassin wherever he may strike next, and destroy him. Gabriel never believed he’d still be following Temple almost a thousand years later.

Because Temple may be a demon, the man with snake eyes cursed Gabriel with a life long enough to hunt him down. Now he has picked up Temple's scent again. The Caribbean sea is awash with pirate blood, and in such turmoil the outcome of any fight is far from certain.

Dead Man’s Hand

In the wilderness of the American West, the assassin is set to strike again. Despite his centuries-long curse, Gabriel is still but a man, scarred and bitter. The town of Deadwood has seen many such men... though it’s never seen anything quite like the half-demon known as Temple.


"The action is cutlass-sharp and the encounters between Gabriel and Temple are both brutal and chilling." -- Publishers Weekly

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 18, 2016 – Lebbon (The Silence) brings the piratical Caribbean to life in this collection of linked stories. The Caribbean teemed with pirates, privateers, and fantastic battles, but it never saw a battle like the vendetta that Gabriel has pursued against Temple, the demonic being that slaughtered his family. Drowning in grief and anger, Gabriel accepts power from a man with snake eyes and uses it to hunt Temple down. After six centuries and a dozen encounters where Gabriel loses every time, his immortal body accumulates scars that never quite heal and grow intensely painful when he is close to Temple. Finally, Gabriel finds the demon again as it prepares to kill the famous English privateer Henry Morgan. This time Gabriel has a pirate crew at his back, but this may only mean more sheep for the slaughter. The action is cutlass-sharp and the encounters between Gabriel and Temple are both brutal and chilling. Placing the 19th-century story "Dead Man's Hand" first dilutes the power of the titular 17th-century piece following it, since readers will already know the outcome of the earlier encounter. This likely won't matter to Lebbon's fans, however, who will be pleased to have all these works in one place.
