Cold Blood: Yamabuki vs. the Sword Master

Available

Description

A samurai destined for greatness embarks on her first mission.

In ancient Japan -- a land of stunning beauty and unspeakable brutality, in a time when gods walked among mortals -- Yamabuki, a warlord's only daughter, trained in sword and bow, bears important dispatches to the Imperial Capital.

Veiled in the guise of an ordinary warrior, not even revealing that she is female, she travels not as a princess but with the common people, only to find that many are not who they seem. Some want her dead. Others want her because she's a woman. She must fight for her honor, her duty, and her clan. Blood will be spilled before it is over.

The epic saga of Yamabuki's adventures in the years leading up to the Genpei War and beyond begins here in Book One of Sword of the Taka Samurai.

About the Author

For several years, Katherine M. Lawrence has been researching and writing the adventures of Yamabuki, an actual historic female samurai who lived in the Heian Era of Japan. Inspired by several decades in the martial arts halls led by women -- Ja Shin Do, the San Jose State University Kendo Club, and Pai Lum White Lotus Fist-Crane style -- Katherine set out to write about the experiences of women who train in warriors skills...and Yamabuki in particular. Katherine graduated from the University of Washington with a BA degree in both History and Chemistry, and continued with work on a Masters in History at the Far Eastern and Slavic Institute. She also received an MBA from Harvard University.
