Kaede is forced to become a wanderer, a spirit wolf as her only companion. Imari, daughter of a daimyo, needs a favor. To guide her to a faraway mountain where a magical blacksmith is rumored to live that can replace her missing left hand. Together, they must travel across the treacherous Jade Sea, protect themselves from Kaede’s vengeful family, and perhaps even save the Empire from destruction.
