More about the author, Andrey Vasilyev:
By his own admission, Andrey started writing in his late 30’s and only “because there was nothing handy to read,” but after his first two books gained nearly instant acclaim, he had to give serious thought to changing his current banking career to that of a professional writer. Fortunately for his readers, who had voted his debut novel More Than a Game the “Best Book of the Year 2014,” he never looked back after that.
Over the next few years, he continued work on his now-bestselling Fayroll series, maintained a blog, and participated in various multiple-author projects. Andrey is also the author of The Raven’s Flock and The Arch series, which will soon be available in English.
When he is not writing his intricately crafted, action-packed stories, he enjoys playing online shooter games with his son or rummaging through second-hand bookshops and bookstalls in search of rare editions or personal favorites.
