Overview

Book 3 of the Emily Kane Adventures, plus free bonus--Book 4, Girl Spins A Blade (a novella).

High school graduation was never so dangerous as it turns out to be for Emily Kane. Defending herself against foreign agents is one thing, but when the threat comes from within Emily's own family the violence rises to a new level, and the need to reconcile herself with her inner demons has never been so urgent.

Book 3 of the Emily Kane Adventures.
Books 1, 2, 4 & 5 are available now:

Girl Fights Back - It's one thing to study martial arts, but fighting for your life is entirely different
Girl Punches Out - a kidnapping, and the trail leads to the Kamchatka Krai
Girl Takes The Oath - Emily finds a calling in the Navy, trailing danger in her wake.
And look for Book 6 in December 2014 - Emily's Marine unit tracks terrorists in the Celebes Sea, but she finds something much more profound in the windward islands, and something much more menacing finds her.

On Book 4 (included as a bonus in this edition), Girl Spins A Blade: Her "Granny" helped Emily Kane find the strength to fight off the black-ops teams hunting her. But now Emily needs to find some relief from Granny, and to reconcile herself to the violence she had to unleash. She hopes to find spiritual renewal in the crowded pantheon of the Hindus and Buddhists of Nepal. But the spirit of violence is not far behind her.

 

Excerpt from Girl Takes Up Her Sword:

"I hope you'll come quietly, Tenno-san, so nobody has to get hurt," Kim said.

"Come quietly? Are you arresting me?"

"Let's just say the NIS has a few questions for you."

"Don't trust him, Emily," Ethan shouted. "They're going to kill us no matter what you do."

One of Kim's men struck him hard behind the ear to silence him, and he slumped to the floor. Just then, Connie turned the corner.

"What the hell... Jay, what's going...?"

Before she could finish her question, and with no visible sign of emotion, Kim shot her twice in the chest. The force of the impact knocked her back into the hallway, where she collapsed in a heap against the wall. Emily turned to go check on her friend.

"Stop right there! No one else has to get hurt if you just cooperate."
Emily felt a different sort of energy rise inside of her, something entirely new. Was it revenge? Or bloodlust? She couldn't tell, but whatever it was, it felt volcanic in its enormity. Chanting voices from her dreams echoed in her ears: "Michiko, Michi-san, Michi-sama, Michi-kami." What were they trying to tell her? Go along with him? Resist? She couldn't quite tell.
