Enter a world of prostitutes and Samurais in 12th century Japan.

‘This is about what you must do to keep our honour.’ My father enclosed his arms around me, put his head against my middle and sobbed with no sounds.

Kozaisho, the Fifth-Daughter of a lowly farmer, feels her world shattering when she is sold by her father in exchange for land. Heartbroken, her one ray of light comes when a series of auspicious omens allows her to be trained in the skills and ancient warrior-arts of the legendary samurai. This doesn’t protect her from being banished to the Village of Outcasts when she’s old enough, however, and forced to become a Woman-for-Play. There she realises other weapons are needed in the daily fight for survival, and using her wit and intelligence, she captivates everyone with her mesmerising storytelling abilities.

Kozaisho is beginning to find some peace in her life, until a deranged priest, who has tormented her since she was a child, murders her lover. Armed with her tongue and her sword, she dedicates her future to avenging the death. But little does she realise she is carving out an entirely new fate for herself…
