In the Time of Warring States, one man,
finds his revenge, redemption and salvation as he witnesses the unification of an Empire while his clan vanishes from existence tracing a journey through the back avenues of turn of the 15th century Japan.
We are taken on a Candidesque journey through the eyes of a master-less Samurai,
the ashes of history, the devastation, which is civil conflict.
After betrayal, death, murder, loss, love, lust,
destruction, and suffering he rebuilds what little is left of his life, and in doing so finds new meaning as to what Life truly is.
The story is a precisely crafted complex allegory about self-discovery and enlightenment, and contains the mythical themes necessary to concoct such a Hero,
a wounded warrior, suffering from PTSD,
who acts as avatar to the reader.
