What do you think?

In case you’re unfamiliar with Katherine’s work, Cold Blood begins the tale of 17-year-old Yamabuki, daughter of a warlord, trained in sword and bow, on her first solo mission—to deliver three scrolls to the Imperial City.

Cold Blood is a novella—a quick, sharp introduction to Yamabuki and the world in which she travels. But it is but the first story of the Sword of the Taka Samurai series.

Here’s a little teaser video we made for the whole series:

Book two, Cold Rain, runs longer as Yamabuki, trying to fully understand the implications of what she’s learned and experienced, stumbles into circumstances beyond her control. At 83,000+ words, Cold Heart is a full-length novel about newfound love, danger, and a desperate fight for her life. Cold Trail, available for preorder and also novel length, continues the action as Yamabuki makes her way to Heian-kyō, a city in turmoil as clans vie for power, forging alliances.
