Publisher Description

Two samurai risk their hearts, souls, and their very existence to stop an occult phantom from destroying the world, in this stunning supernatural fantasy from Legend of the Five Rings

The demon-vanquishing samurai, Asako Sekken and Agasha no Isao Ryotora are summoned to Winter Court. Their exploits with the Spirit Realms have taken a toll on the pair and the cut and thrust of Rokugani politics proves challenging. After being urged to share their tales of adventure, the Winter Court guests begin to fall into a deep sleep from which they cannot wake. Fearing foul play, the Phoenix demand retribution, but Sekken and Ryotora uncover the hand of a supernatural trickster seeking entry to the mortal realm. The path to victory will risk their lives and the strange bond between them. But they must succeed, lest something awful escape into Rokugan.

“I have not read the book The Night Parade of 100 Demons and this story is its sequel. You definitely do not need to read that book first in order to enjoy the story. Marie Brennan weaves an intricate tale of court intrigue, demons, love and duty in this mesmerizing tale about the two samurai Asako Sekken and Agasha no Isao Ryotora. Both of them were successful in stopping the Night Parade. Now they face a new challenge when people are falling asleep. I love the two POVs and it helps convey their feelings for each other, their duty and the new restrictions they face. Everything was handled very well by the author. I own other Marie Brennan's books and this book has motivated me to read their other works. I would like to thank Netgalley for the Advanced Reader Copy and this is my honest review.”
