About the book:
Risuko follows a young woman along the first dangerous steps to discovering who she truly is.
Though Japan has been devastated by a century of civil war, Risuko just wants to climb trees. Growing up far from the battlefields and court intrigues, the fatherless girl finds herself pulled into a plot that may reunite Japan — or may destroy it. She is torn from her home and what is left of her family, but finds new friends at a school that may not be what it seems.
Set in Japan during the Sengoku Jidai — the century-long civil war era —Risuko is a coming-of-age adventure for a young woman adrift in a tumultuous, terrifying world.
It is the first in a planned four-book series, Seasons of the Sword.
