In an alternate Asia, the Fumetsu are a Japanese-style culture of immortal beings, who live among mortal human races based on Sri Lankan, Ainu, and Korean style cultures. Life is tough in their city-state of Chieshi, which exists to protect the mountain on which the older Fumetsu live.
Mayu is a champion in the sport of women's sword fighting and a once in a generation talent. She is also a keen advocate of women's rights, who wants to cross over to the mountain and change society through politics. Then a rebellion happens and she has to decide how best to pursue her aims: by diplomacy or by the sword.

About the Author
Mercia McMahon is a fiction and non-fiction author, as well as a poet. She was born, bred and battered in Belfast, but now lives in London, when not travelling to research a book. Mercia's fiction work is sometimes darkly serious, sometimes quirky, sometimes serious and quirky and always deeply political. She ignores all rules especially the rule that she always ignores rules. One rule she definitely ignores is that an author should not hop from genre to genre. Her work includes both literary fiction and speculative fiction (alternative history, fantasy, and science fiction). In her non-fiction work Mercia writes in the areas of history, philosophy, religion, gender studies, and creative writing. Again, the political angle is never far from the surface.
