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.
