Liminal Chronicles Series
An ex-gangster. A mysterious old woman. A mythological world of magic and danger hiding behind everyday life.
Risking his newfound freedom, Umeji Tatsuya hides the identity of a powerful kitsune fox spirit who offers to help him forge a mob-free future—starting with teaching him magic. Just when things are looking up, Date, a kitsune with a centuries-old grudge against his new mentor arrives in town, commanding vicious ogre-like oni and bringing destruction in her wake. Worse yet, the one person who could drag Umeji back into the mob shows up on his doorstep, under Date’s control.
Is Umeji the next victim in Date’s sights? Or is there more to this magical threat than he wants to believe...
“One hundred pieces of gold for every kitsune head laid at my feet!”
Umeji is convinced that his only path to redemption is to become the protector of Nonogawa. So, he requests training from the League of Guardians. But they're skeptical that he's left his yakuza past behind. Meanwhile, Ibaraki Douji is slaughtering kitsune and stealing the weapons scattered across Japan that will allow her to become Shogun. When the legendary sword Umeji carried is stolen, Umeji is blamed for the theft. He's done playing by the League's rules. With family and friends by his side and all of kitsune kind counting on him, Umeji vows to recover the sword and stop Ibaraki.
Will Umeji succeed and prove he has what it takes to join the League before it's too late?
Join Umeji’s action-packed journey into Japanese myth, personal redemption, and found family.
