Plot Summary: Shinjuro may be a little young to be the master of a swordsmanship school, but fate didn't give him a choice. Now his position and martial arts skill land him right in the middle of serious trouble when the rogue samurai Mikage faces off against the Tokugawa government. Caught in the middle, Shinjuro and the small group of swordsmen who train at his school must protect the town from harm.
