The Abe clan and its allies are in full rebellion.
When the Emperor's greatest military leader, Yoshii, is targeted for
assassination by magic, it is up to the newly sober Lord Yamada and
his exorcist associate Kenji to keep the young man alive long enough
to put down the uprising before the entire country is consumed
by war. Yamada knows how to deal with demons, monsters, and angry ghosts,
but the greatest threat of all is one final assassin, hidden in a place
where no one - especially Lord Yamada - would ever think to look.
