"Death is a natural part of life," he said simply, leaning against the weathered tree. "It is as certain as the change of seasons, and as unforgiving as the tide. One must either wait for their time, or fight the tide itself. There is nothing as hollow as waiting to die, and I refuse to give in. Not yet."
   
  Akane is a young assassin in Feudal Japan, caught between two powerful warlords each vying to control his power. Turned into a ruthless killing machine by a dark master and manipulated by a mad warlord seeking to establish order through enslavement; Akane is imprisoned with powerful magic for eight hundred years. His freedom comes at the hands of Madeline, a young woman ignorant of the ways of magic. Fuelled by vengeance, Akane sets out into the modern world to end those that sought to abuse his power.
  
  Fight for freedom.
  
  Reap vengeance.
  
  Akane has been unleashed into the modern day, and will stop at nothing to take the lives of those who wronged him; perhaps finding a way back to the past in the process. Ancient magic and modern technology collide in a tale of ninjas, witches and warlords as a lone warrior strives to find his humanity and a way back home amongst a sea of blood.

I will admit. The prologue is enticing, it intrigues me to read into the next chapter. Especially due to Akane's ability over shadow manipulation. Truly awesome.

This is amazing, I loved everything about the prologue, it instantly hooks the reader! 
                              
                              And poor Akane, killing his only surviving family member? My god, it's so sad and painful.

This intro kinda makes me think of Sasuke Uchiha in Rurouni Kenshin mode

This prologue is a curious thing. There is a conveyed sense of loss, anguish and a streak of mystery with your main character, Akane. plus it doesn't hurt that I love this Asian sentiment. Cheers to you for a great start!
