Publisher's Summary

"An intelligently presented historical fantasy that provokes thought from the start." (The British Fantasy Society)

Where once new ideas and beliefs were accepted, now the country's military dictator, the Shogun, is shutting his country down to any outside influences.

Father Joaquim Martinez, who left Portugal to make Hizen Province, Japan, his home, has been quietly tending to the lives of his villagers, but everything is about to be thrown into turmoil, as the Shogun has outlawed Martinez's beliefs. Those who won't recant or accept banishment, face a death sentence.

With the threat of a massacre looming, and the Shogun's Samurai closing in, Father Martinez must decide if he is willing to risk everything to save those he has sworn to protect.
