Overview

In a society that decides your status by the color of your hair, black-haired Shumei clings to the bottom of the social ladder, forever doomed to slave away in the medicine field of a tiny mountain village. However, a catastrophic disease breaks out among their small population and she must provide treatment for the deadly fever. When her supply of medicine runs out, she is forced to make a trip to the medicine field, but traveling outside the village at night is almost certainly a death sentence.

Demons roam the woods and magic is believed to be one of the Damned Arts. Shumei nearly makes it back safely but is literally caught by a breathtakingly handsome man…who isn't really human. From that night onward, her dismal, isolated life radically changes.

Set in a fictional world based upon sixteenth-century Japan, Shumei's story overflows with powerful magic, mortal danger, shocking discoveries, hidden histories and soul-shaking passion.

Reader Advisory: This story contains some light f/f touching.

    Worth reading. Worth reading!

    Very enjoyable. My only reason for not giving it 5stars is the fact that she gors too far in depth about the costumes the characters are wearing and it can be distracting.
