Sword of the Ronin

Travis Heermann (Author)


His sword has a deadly secret.
But to tell him, it wants blood in payment.

The sword called Silver Crane knows Ken'ishi's hidden past, the heritage he himself does not.

When Silver Crane is stolen, he must recover it all cost, or else Kazuko, the woman he loves, will die.

Kazuko is in love with this ronin she can never have, trapped in a political marriage with a powerful samurai lord.

But her husband's scheming chamberlain knows her secret.

And an unstoppable invading horde is on the horizon...

If you love action, intrigue, star-crossed romance, and epic battles with the perfect mix of history and fantasy, you'll love Sword of the Ronin.

"From the first sentence, Travis Heermann weaves a tale that sucked this reader into a rich Japanese tapestry full of ronin, samurai, and magic. It was hard to put this book down to sleep." - Patrick Hester, Hugo-Award Winning SFSignal.com and the Functional Nerds Podcast

"Travis Heermann takes everything I loved about Heart of the Ronin (adventure, intrigue, sympathetic characters), puts it in a pressure cooker and serves it with a side of Awesome. Sword of the Ronin is his best novel yet and won't disappoint." - Shaun Farrell, Adventures in Sci-Fi Publishing

"Sword of the Ronin is a raw and energetic adventure that explores deep and eternal themes such as honor, love, and betrayal while maintaining a engaging, humorous, living world. It also has an awesome ronin hero who hacks lots of bad people to bits, if you're into that sort of thing. Which you definitely should be." - Rich Wulf, author of The Heirs of Ash Trilogy

"A rich, engaging, morally complex historical fantasy, deeply embedded in Japanese culture." - E.C. Ambrose, author of Elisha Barber, The Dark Apostle series

"Those interested in Japan's culture and history, including ancient mythology will find this book an extraordinary read. It is certainly not a story for the fainthearted, but which touches you with its truth-drawing and starkly poignant meaning. As a work of fantasy I enjoyed it very much, although at times it did cause shivers to run down my spine and turned my blood cold." - Goodreads Reviewer
