First in the series, for Tween girls. Because the book description was vague, I had to read this book for myself. Set in modern Los Angeles, this is a story of a 19 year old girl, Heaven Kogo, adopted into a rich and powerful Japanese traditional family. She is to be married off to a rival family as a business transaction. As with many other fantasy, larger than life hero stories, the heroine must go through a process of rebirth before fully realizing all of the heroic powers she possesses. Some black and white illustrations. Easy to read.

They say your life begins on your wedding day. Here's what happened on mine: I lost the person I love most. I learned that everything I knew about my family was a lie. Now I'm being hunted. I must fight back...or die. My life ended that day. The old Heaven is gone.
