Her name is Mirai Yoshida.

She was not born in Japan.

She is not supposed to be in 1864.

But, through a time-travel mishap, Mirai is stuck with no way out. Help may be found when she befriends Hatsu, a humble tea mistress harboring a dangerous secret. Yet time is running short for the entire nation, because Mirai knows that the shogunate is about to fall. Learning the way of the sword might be her only path towards survival.

Chronin Volume 1: The Knife at Your Back by Alison Wilgus goes on sale on February 19.

  1. The excerpt didn’t grab me and give me any desire to continue reading the book. Started with a basic orientation and left the time travel as the “hook”, but as we know from the blurb that this is about time travel and being stuck in the past, the orientation isn’t really an interesting point to bring someone into the story. It is too short to give any interesting sense of the characters.
