Serpent of Time
by Eugene Woodbury
Fujiwara Ryo is the last princess of Japan's doomed Southern Court. When a revolt against the shogun fails, she flees with Sen, her loyal lady-in-waiting. Atop sacred Mt. Koya, Sen's uncle summons Kala Sarpa, the "Serpent of Time," and transports her to the present day. But the serpent harbors a grudge of its own against her family, forcing Ryo to travel back to the past to save her future.
