9781943194049: Cold Rain: Yamabuki and the Warlord Prince (Sword of the Taka Samurai)

Not-yet seventeen years old, Yamabuki, the only surviving daughter of a legendary warlord, travels in the guise of an ordinary samurai, heading for the capital carrying secret dispatches in her first real-world test. Having triumphed in a battle with a sword master, she finds herself waylaid in a lawless town, her path blocked by unseasonable snows, and her safety at risk from the corrupt sakimori.

Meanwhile, rival factions in her home province send a master ninja to make sure she never reaches her destination alive.

But all is not darkness. Yamabuki also encounters the young warlord Yoshinaka, handsome and charismatic, who vows to reclaim his birthright from his treacherous uncle.

Drawn to him as a kindred soul, Yamabuki starts to open her heart. But does she want to get entangled in his ambitious plans to conquer and rule over the entire empire?

From the Inside Flap:

 "Ever kill a man?" the warlord asked.

She did not answer.

"I can see you have. And it was not luck that you survived. It was skill."

In a grand bid to preserve the royal bloodline, warlord General Moroto has personally trained Yamabuki, his daughter and last surviving child, in the art of war and rulership.

Not-yet seventeen years old, Yamabuki travels in the guise of an ordinary samurai, heading for the capital carrying secret dispatches in her first real-world test. However, rival factions send ninja to make sure she never gets there alive.

In a lawless town Yamabuki encounters the young warlord Yoshinaka. Handsome and charismatic, he vows to regain what was taken from him by a treacherous uncle. Drawn to one another as kindred souls, Yoshinaka reveals to Yamabuki his plans to regain far more than his birthright, and invites her to join him in an ambitious power grab to conquer and rule over the entire empire.

A tale of adventure, young love, and self-discovery, Cold Rain brings alive the experience of a young woman warrior in 12th-century Japan.Book Two of a seven-part series.

About the Author:

For several years, Katherine M. Lawrence has been researching and writing the adventures of Yamabuki, an actual historic female samurai who lived in the Heian Era of Japan. Inspired by several decades in the martial arts halls led by women -- Ja Shin Do, the San Jose State University Kendo Club, and Pai Lum White Lotus Fist-Crane style -- Katherine set out to write about the experiences of women who train in warriors skills...and Yamabuki in particular. Katherine graduated from the University of Washington with a BA degree in both History and Chemistry, and continued with work on a Masters in History at the Far Eastern and Slavic Institute. She also received an MBA from Harvard University.
