Liminal Chronicles Book Series


Rise (Book 1)

A myth come to life may be worth far more than his freedom.

Will a former gangster dare to protect the elderly woman who antagonizes him? He must choose between breaking a promise to his parole officer or the old lady. Each choice carries a hefty price.

Umeji Tatsuya, moves from Tokyo to the small town of Nonogawa after leaving the yakuza, the Japanese mob. He knows all too well that his past can't stay buried.

'Once Yakuza, always Yakuza. The tattoos mark you for life.'

Nakamura Hisako, , the town’s beloved dowager, learns about Umeji’s past and tries to oust him, but Umeji just discovered her own long-held secret. If he keeps it for her, the cost is his recently regained freedom. If he doesn’t, Nakamura might have to leave her home, and he risks angering forces he barely understands… and barely believes in.

As the mundane and Spirit Realm intertwine, so do the modern-day and the Pre-Meiji eras. Centuries-old rivalries flare up again, and the past returns in the present. Umeji’s second chance is only the first step of his journey to discover myth, social redemption, and found family.
