Mariko has always known that being a woman means she's not in control of her own fate.

But Mariko is the daughter of a prominent samurai and a cunning alchemist in her own right, and she refuses to be ignored.

When she is ambushed by a group of bandits known as the Black Clan enroute to a political marriage to Minamoto Raiden the emperor's son Mariko realises she has two choices: she can wait to be rescued... or she can take matters into her own hands, hunt down the clan and find the person who wants her dead.

Disguising herself as a peasant boy, Mariko infiltrates the Black Clan's hideout and befriends their leader, the rebel ronin Ranmaru, and his second-in-command, Okami.

Ranmaru and Okami warm to Mariko, impressed by her intellect and ingenuity. But as Mariko gets closer to the Black Clan, she uncovers a dark history of secrets that will force her to question everything she's ever known.

'This is an intoxicating gem of a story. You will fall in love, just as I did.' - Marie Lu

    Thoroughly enjoyed the book. Waiting for the next one!

  • Woah.

    This was a definite case of judging a book by it's cover.... and I'm so glad I did!!

    This was a fantastic read - a definite "page turner" - and I cannot wait to read the next installment.

    I did work out a bunch of the "twists" and surprises, but I still loved this book and find myself randomly recalling moments and reviewing them again in my head. I think I'm going to have to read it again soon.

    Can't recommend this enough.
