Sarasa grew up knowing that her twin brother Tatara was prophesied to be the “boy of destiny,” the one who would overthrow the oppressive government and unite the people. When Tatara dies in battle, however, Sarasa realizes that it’s up to her to secretly take on her brother’s identity. On the way, Sarasa meets and falls in love with the mysterious Shuri, who may also have something up his sleeve. Together, she and her group of ragtag fighters journey across the land, attacking the many rulers and hoping to someday reach the leader of them all, the Red King.

I’m in love! Like ti’s exactly what I thought it would be and that’s exactly what I wanted! So happy I’m finally getting to read this one! Volume 1 kicked things off amazingly, getting a lot of the necessary information in there and a lot of the plot devices out of the way early. Only worry is going to be how are they going to stretch the plot over 24 volumes, but I’ll worry about that later. So good currently.
