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. Hunted by their traitorous uncle, Hidehira, the girls await word from their mother while continuing with their samurai training in order to avenge their father's murder. Then Hidehira's unexpected arrival leads to disaster. He intercepts a letter holding a clue to the whereabouts of the girls' mother and their little brother, Moriyasu-the rightful heir to everything their uncle has stolen. As blood is spilled, Kimi reveals her true identity in a moment of rage! It is a mistake that could cost them everything. 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 ...
