A month has passed since Jessica Cartwright’s life was turned upside by a chance encounter with a creature of myth in Hyde Park.

Now, she has a displaced samurai, Hikaru Arashi, living on her sofa. Meanwhile Orochi, Hikaru’s enemy and yōkai of the ancient world, has taken up residence in the dark spaces beneath the city of London.

As Jessica acclimatises Hikaru to modern life, he teaches her the skills she will need to survive in this new world of gods and monsters.

But after one of Orochi’s nightmarish minions tracks them down, she is forced to recognise that they may have a much bigger problem on their hands:

A new killer stalks the streets – a man who has seen death, but returned with a malign purpose that threatens the very city itself!

The stage is set for a clash of ages, where the modern will do battle with myth for the fate of London. But when the dust settles, which will remain standing?

The City?

Or the Dead?
