Katana of Trust
by A.C. Ward
Escaping death by her father’s hand was only the beginning….
Determined to prove herself to the gods, Shou will do anything to forget her past and take her place as the chosen heir of the kami. But she’s not the only marked one seeking their favor.
Teaming up with Masaru, heir to the Date clan, is her only option to uncover the truth behind the prophecy and save herself from death. As Masaru and Shou grow closer, one thing is certain: they’ve been wrong about the kami all along. Horribly wrong.
The first book in The Kami Prophecy, a YA series based on some historical fact and full of action, mythical creatures, and adventure, all set in a fantasy world inspired by feudal Japan.
