Audible Editor Reviews

In this mystery set in 18th-century Japan, fourteen-year-old samurai apprentice Seikei is sent by the shogun to persuade the young emperor to carry out his ceremonial duties. It seems like a simple task, but when the emperor is kidnapped in a complicated plot to overthrow the shogun, Seikei's mission takes a dangerous turn. Narrator Hayden Lee's thoughtful performance is framed by his nimble cadence as Seikei, with the help of a mysterious warrior, tries to rescue the emperor before his sacred sword, supposedly unbeatable in battle, ends up in the enemy's hands.

Publisher's Summary

When the teen-age samurai apprentice, Seikei, is sent on a mission by the shogun, he believes it to be a simple one. The 14-year-old Emperor has refused to carry out his ceremonial duties, and Seikei must persuade him to resume his proper place. But when the emperor is kidnapped in an elaborate plot to overthrow the shogun, Seikei’s mission becomes much more dangerous. With the help of a mysterious warrior, he must rescue the Emperor before the sacred sword - said to be unbeatable in battle - falls into the wrong hands. Should he fail, even Seikei’s foster father, Judge Ooka, may not be safe.
