The Name of the Blade

The Name of the Blade
Zoe Marriott
Fiction M3497n

With her sixteenth birthday approaching, Mio is increasingly drawn to the katana—a Japanese long sword—that her grandfather hid in the attic before his death. But the katana is more than some dusty heirloom, and when Mio takes it to complete her get-up for a costume party, her actions unleash an ancient evil onto the streets of modern-day London. As Mio, with her best friend and a mysterious warrior who appears out of nowhere, is stalked by the terrors of mythical Japan, she must learn to control the sword’s legendary powers…or she will lose not only her own life, but also the love of a lifetime.

In the first novel of a breathtaking trilogy, critically acclaimed author Zoë Marriott brings spellbinding mythical creatures and bewitching characters to life—and possibly death—on the streets of London.
