Path of the Assassin
Volume 14: Bad Blood
While the war to consolidate power in feudal Japan rages on, one of Togugawa Ieyasu's strongholds falls to the Takeda Army as it advance west—and at Mikatagahara, Ieyasu is handed a crushing defeat by Shingen's forces. But though Ieyasu is outmanned and his position is weakening, he still has at his command the master ninja Hattori Hanzō, who has brought him though any number of delicate—and deadly—situations. But with enemy armies on the march and spies and assassins at Ieyasu's doorstep, can even Hanzō's matchless skills keep Ieyasu alive long enough to fulfill his destiny? From the legendary creators of Lone Wolf and Cub, Path of the Assassin blends martial action, courtly intrigue, and bold eroticism within the historical context of sixteenth-century feudal Japan.
