Review
After a deadly chemical accident, 14-year old Yassen Gregorovitch, the main character, is forced to leave his village in Russia. Since his parents could not come with him, Yassen was forced to go to Moscow alone where he met his parent’s friend, Misha Dementyev who tells on him to the police. After running away from prison, Yassen meets the rich businessman, Vladimir Sharkovsky. After finding out that Sharkovsky was the cause of the chemical accident, Yassen vows to kill him. After escaping Sharkovsky’s home, Yassen chooses to join the deadly terrorist organization called Scorpia. He was chosen because his record was completely destroyed in the chemical accident.
