Path of the Assassin
Volume 13: Hateful Burden
In the politics, struggles, and battles that lead to the birth of a nation, sometimes even good people must die at the hands of allies. And now it's down to only a few warlords of Edo-era Japan. History already tells the story of the victor, but the real guts of Path of the Assassin lie in the characters behind the scenes—the ninja warriors doing the dirty work. Theirs is a story of families and war and intrigue, only far more mysterious and untold.
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.
