Sisters of the Sword

Sisters of the Sword

*WARNING CONTAINS SPOILERS!* Kimi and Hana live in the 13th century ancient Japan. They have learned to read, write, and a bit of fighting. Kimi dreams of becoming a Samurai but knows it will never happen. One day, when their uncle-Hidehira-arrives. Later that night, Kimi, and Hana spy on the men (their father and Uncle, doing a tea ceremony) and witness their uncle and his men poison their father and kill almost their entire household. They escape and believe that their mother and brother did as well. They are chased through their land and disguise themselves as servant boys. They are being searched for so they go to a Dojo. Once they get there they meet one of their cousins, the son of Hidehira- Ken-ichi. They hope he doesn't recognize them. But when they try to walk by Kimi accidentally runs into his sword. He gets angry and attacks Kimi. She fights him until the Master appears. The Master-Goku- stops them. Kimi asks if she and Hana can learn from him. Goku doesn't think they can do it and tells them to leave. Kimi challenges him to a fight, and he accepts. Kimi does a pretty good job and allows them to stay. The rest of the story is a really cool clash of fighting and mystery. This is a must read. I liked reading it. :)
