One rogue Samurai will sacrifice everything – apart from his honour
As Japan’s factions head to war, this extraordinary new historical fiction series takes us into the heart of life as a Samurai
Japan’s warlords are on the march and nothing is as it appears. After a failed assassination attempt on the Emperor, an anonymous samurai is coerced into a suicide mission that will test his skills to the limit. He must face this challenge for his young charge, a girl who is the last remainder of his duty.
The samurai and the girl must journey to a far and impregnable mountain fortress, fighting off threats and dangers on the way. The girl, knowing no other life, hopes to learn all she can of the ways of the warrior.
But they do not travel alone. The hunters are also the hunted.
