20 years ago the Hangman’s Owl disappeared.
Hero. Villain. Monster. Fiend.
The mysterious creature has had lingering effects on the beleaguered nation, long since at odds with its own oppressed people. Without its omniscient avenger, crime runs rampant in the streets, and the country crumbles before foreign besiegers. The downtrodden and mighty alike have nowhere to turn.

Who, or what they will find when they finally run the Owl to ground, is another matter entirely. Some monsters are better left in their fetters. Others, however, may save more lives than anyone has ever imagined once they are truly unleashed…
The Hangman’s Owl brings to life a Steampunk Superhero in a dark near-modern Age. It is the story of costumed superpowers when confronted with the strange, weird, and downright magical.

Stan, also known as Mongoose, is an extreme traceur and a freerunner, whose real-life talents attracted the attention of The Steel Hounds, the most notorious and private clan of the virtual world of Artar, famous for serving the grey cardinal. While the political landscape for this new world is yet to form, intrigues, conspiracy, daring raids, and sabotage are the main weapons of the Hounds, and his evaluation has just begun.
To complete it successfully and become a full-fledged member of the clan, Stan will have to adapt to working side-by-side with the most unique people with shady backgrounds — even if he is not a team player by nature and has already failed at the very beginning by choosing the class least suitable for teamwork: Battle Monk.
Stan is rebellious, free-spirited, and daring. He risks his life every day just to avoid getting bored of the daily grind. Normally, an expelled student has no hope of entering the virtual world of Artar, an expensive online VR project, but when a suspicious organization offers to pay all expenses to let Stan in for a special purpose, Mongoose gets his chance to join the select few. However, to successfully complete his trial, Stan will have to face his main enemy — himself, while finding peace and mastering all five styles of the Battle Monks of Artar.
The Steel Hounds is the first book of the highly popular Russian LitRPG series The Chronicles of Artar by Vladimir Vasilenko. The brightest representative of a new wave of Gamelit writers, Vladimir has created the story of Mongoose, a reckless teenager kicked out of college, who has to struggle with following strict discipline and finding inner harmony while traversing the difficult path of a Battle Monk.
