A seventeen-year-old ninja finds herself the guardian of a magic talisman that holds a demon trapped inside.

Awards and Accolades
“In the face of mounting challenges, a ninja is torn between her mission as guardian of a magical pearl and loyalty to her friends…. As her mission nears its climax, Kata faces an epic battle alone and must decide between the lesser of two evils. Kudos to Thomson for a well-researched story with plausible characters in a fantastical world reminiscent of 16th-century Japan. Jam-packed with thrilling action and hurtling plot twists—readers may forget to breathe.”
