Samurai Girl is a six-book series about Heaven Kogo, who, when a baby, was the sole survivor of Japan’s worst air disaster and was subsequently adopted by an uber-wealthy family. At nineteen she is about to get married when her wedding is attacked by ninjas, who kill her brother. She discovers that everything isn’t as it ought to be, and escapes to learn the Path of the Samurai so she may look after herself.
If that sounds pretty good to you, or you are already a fan of the books, you will be excited to learn that a three-part television series has just screened in the US! It’s a mystery as to whether or not it will screen here, but in the meantime there’s plenty to do on the official website.
Or else you can read the library’s copies of the books.
