PLEASE NOTE: This book is a Print On Demand (POD) title, which is non-returnable and requires a non-refundable 50% deposit. The deposit will be taken as soon as we receive your order, and will be applied to the final cost of the book once it arrives. POD titles typically take 2-3 weeks to arrive from the publisher, however unexpected printing delays may slow down delivery. All POD books are final sale. By adding this title to your cart and completing the checkout process, you agree to these terms.


A Print On Demand (POD) book is, as the name implies, printed by the publisher on demand, meaning the books are made to order for the customer.


Due to the nature of POD books, they are non-returnable to the publisher. Therefore we require a non-refundable deposit in the amount of 50% of the cost of the book before we submit the order to the publisher. This deposit is then applied toward the final cost of the book once it arrives. All Print On Demand books are final sale.

We should also note that due to the nature of print on demand titles, the quality of the book can differ from that of a regular book, in that sometimes in the event of older material it can appear like a scan or photocopy, or occasionally have an unappealing design, layout, or typeface.

Once the POD book is ordered it typically takes about 2-3 weeks to receive your copy at the store, at which point we would charge your credit card for the balance owing (minus the deposit already charged) and, depending on which option you chose at checkout, contact you regarding shipping or to let you know the order is ready for pick-up.

By adding a Print On Demand title to your cart and completing the checkout process, you agree to our terms and conditions.

If you have any questions about Print On Demand books, please contact your nearest McNally Robinson bookstore.

*Note: These terms and conditions do not apply to Print-On-Demand titles that are currently in stock at one of our bookstores.


Kiyomi Hoshita is a peerless warrior from Kyotasa, the land of the greatest swordmasters.but she also happens to be a mere seventeen-year-old girl. When she is called upon to use her skills to fight for her clan in order to seize a throne that does not rightfully belong to them, she makes the painful choice to flee her homeland, leaving behind everything she knows and loves rather than allowing herself to become a murderer of her own countrymen.

Having exiled herself from her own country, Kiyomi searches the lands beyond for a cause worthy of her blade, but she finds that the outside world is harsher than she had imagined. The entire civilized realm is in a state of war against an invading barbarian horde. Confronted by the suffering of those struggling against the invasion, Kiyomi must make a decision: Will she lend her abilities to these foreigners and join this war after having fled her homeland to avoid another? And if so, can she and her allies uncover the identity of the shadow organization that orchestrated the invasion in time to stop them?
