'A diary is an assassin's cloak which we wear when we stab a comrade in the back with a pen', wrote William Soutar in 1934. But a diary is also a place for recording everyday thoughts and special occasions, private fears and hopeful dreams. The Assassin's Cloak gathers together some of the most entertaining and inspiring entries for each day of the year, as writers ranging from Queen Victoria to Andy Warhol, Samuel Pepys to Adrian Mole, pen their musings on the historic and the mundane. Spanning centuries and international in scope, this peerless anthology pays tribute to a genre that is at once the most intimate and public of all literary forms. This new updated edition is published to mark the twentieth anniversary of the book's original publication.

I will destroy you. Druzeel realizes that his actions have opened another path, one of evil and deceit, but the path of righteousness still lies before him. Choosing which one to follow is the difficult part, but one thing is certain - nothing will ever be the same. A tiny seed of virtue still lies inside of him, but as he travels through a city full of sin, hatred, and evil, it gets harder to feel that goodness. He knows it will take only the slightest push to fall into a hole of darkness, so he clings tightly to that shinning light. But the pull of the gloom is strong and when a new figure enters his life and offers him power, it may be impossible to resist. With power comes fear and with that fear comes respect. All he wanted was the respect of his peers and the trust of those he admired. Is this new power enough to give him both? Can it make him into the man he always wanted to be? Or will it turn him into a monster? The power is enchanting, but it comes with a heavy price. If he chooses to ignore those consequences, then there may be no pulling him from a dark descent.
