An epic tale set in Japan’s Samurai era.
In the days of the sword, a girl disguised as a boy turns killer to avenge her Samurai master, murdered by a brotherhood of ruthless and powerful men. Following the trail of blood, a brilliant detective – an Emperor’s Watcher – searches for answers only to come face-to-face with an old enemy, a man honour dictates he must protect.
As the death toll rises, and the hunter closes in on the hunted, truth-seeker and ninja assassin find themselves at odds, not only with each other, but also with their fundamental beliefs:
Honour or truth? Instinct or intellect? Justice or revenge?
“To be Ronin, you must be Samurai first.”
Roninko is a bloody, action-packed revenge thriller steeped in ancient wisdom. A philosophical and breathtaking story of Bushido, ‘the Way of the Warriors’.
“This is a beautifully written, atmospheric adventure through ancient Japan. Lovingly researched and with nuanced and interesting characters, I enjoyed this greatly. The interplay between the main protagonists is great fun and their very different points of view create an opportunity to see the fascinating setting and time from two unique and very different perspectives.”
