Traitors lurk around every bend. Mishi’s mind is betraying her, and she fears her kisō and katana will betray her next. Taka’s heart abandons her for a person she cannot possibly trust. Now that the two friends are obliged to help re-establish peace in the land of Gensokai, the only question is where the next betrayal will come from and if Mishi and Taka will have the strength to survive it.
17th Day, 2nd Moon, Cycle 1 of the New Council
AS THEY ROUNDED the corner that opened onto the view of Rōjū City, Mishi's skin felt as though a thousand snakes were writhing across it. The view was breathtaking, certainly, a hundred tall buildings with intricate roofs joined by dozens of bridges that crossed over gorges, rivers, and canals, all shrouded in mist and nestled in the cradle of two large mountains. But that wasn't why she found it difficult to draw air into her lungs. No, that was caused by the icy claws of memory that grappled with her now, tearing at her body as well as her mind, forcing her to remember the last time that she had been in this place, all the violence done to her and, worst of all, by her.
Just as she reached for the man on the ground she thought she heard a voice call her name, and then a hand grabbed her neck and darkness overtook her.
Virginia thinks dangling from the tops of hundred foot cliffs is a good time. She also enjoys hauling a fifty pound backpack all over the Grand Canyon and sleeping under the stars. Sometimes she likes running for miles through the desert, mountains, or wooded flatlands, and she always loves getting lost in new places where she may or may not speak the language.
From surviving earthquakes in Japan, to putting out a small forest fire in Montana, Virginia has been collecting stories from a very young age. She works hard to make her fiction as adventurous as her life and her life as adventurous as her fiction. Both take a lot of imagination.
She recently moved to Winnipeg with her husband (a Manitoba native) and their dog.
