From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of THE
WRATH AND THE DAWN, comes a sweeping, action-packed YA
adventure set against the backdrop of Feudal Japan where
Mulan meets Throne of Glass.
The daughter of a prominent samurai, Mariko has long known
her placeâ€”she may be an accomplished alchemist, whose
cunning rivals that of her brother Kenshin, but because she
is not a boy, her future has always been out of her hands.
At just seventeen years old, Mariko is promised to Minamoto
Raiden, the son of the emperor's favorite consortâ€”a
political marriage that will elevate her family's standing.
But en route to the imperial city of Inako, Mariko narrowly
escapes a bloody ambush by a dangerous gang of bandits known
as the Black Clan, who she learns has been hired to kill her
before she reaches the palace.
Dressed as a peasant boy, Mariko sets out to infiltrate the
Black Clan and track down those responsible for the target
on her back. Once she's within their ranks, though, Mariko
finds for the first time she's appreciated for her intellect
and abilities. She even finds herself falling in loveâ€”a love
that will force her to question everything she's ever known
about her family, her purpose, and her deepest desires.
