In ancient Japan, a land of stunning beauty and unspeakable brutality, Yamabuki, 17 years old, a woman samurai and warlord’s only surviving child, travels on a mission known only to her father through realms controlled by rival factions.

Veiled in the guise of an ordinary warrior, not even revealing that she is female, she crosses the water between two great isles, only to find the passengers are not who they seem. Some want her dead. Others want her because she’s a woman. She must fight for her honor, her duty, and her clan.

Blood will be spilled before it is over. But it will not be the last.
