When Azure's younger sister claims a false accusation of rape, Takeo's life is forfeit. Azura must give up all she knows in a daring and desperate plot to save him from the heat of the Tottori Desert.
This quick novella is awesome! I've added the main series to my TBR pile and when I find the time, I will be reading them! This 100 page story is packed with everything: forbidden young love, a marriage proposal, war, and a sister's jealousy. This novella and story line reminded me of "The Golden Compass" where some people have a spirit animal that talks, can do things and go places. I kept thinking of that movie b/c Azure's seishen is named Lyra.
