Synopsis

Sisters of the Sword: Blade's Edge by Maya Snow

In the second instalment of this stunning quartet, sisters Kimi and Hana are still disguised and in hiding.

Closely pursued, Kimi and Hana flee from their uncle and his army with their friend, Tatsuya. So begins a thrilling and dangerous race to locate their mother and Moriyasu-for if their uncle finds them first it will mean death for them all ...
