Samurai (A Valiant Novel)
Okada Akari and Sakamoto Megumi just may be two women in over their head.
Okada Akari is a samurai, the daughter of right-hand advisor to her clan's Emperor. She's fighting against an enemy threat her people are unprepared for. One day on a mission, she is captured by a mysterious warrior and taken to an enemy camp.
She believes she is done for.
Sakamoto Megumi has wanted to be a samurai her entire life. However, as the daughter of the Emperor, training is impossible. When the Emperor is assassinated, she is thrust into a throne she never wanted. As Empress, she must find a way to become a leader her people will look up to.
Instead of a weak woman unfit for the throne.
As darkness grows, Akari and Megumi will both be pushed to their limits, becoming people they never imagined, in order to save their clan.
