Within A Grey Twilight
- Traumatising content
A mysterious man comes to Okiban. A capital, once much more vibrant. But what are his reasons for coming here. Other than to repay a debt, of course. Few believed that it is the truth. As much as it actually was.
All the while he seeks someone in particular, a girl from his own past which he has nothing more than a simple token from. The only clue he was allowed or known. But that will not deter him from seeking it.
All has changed for Sachiko. With her father's death, and his land being fought over. Even before her brother went back to be the Daimyo of the land. She is the only one who can stop all of this, and she will because even her own fate depends on it. And she doesn't have any wish to let it be ruled by another ever again .
But as her father's death seemed to be tied to a man who made a single appearance, but instilled fear during his first appearance and the only time he was known to be active. But the methods were so brutal, and so incredibly cold that it stunned most of them. She needs to figure it out, and ask whether she was hunting down the same person.
Note: This is a work which is set in an alternative Japan, inspired by the Edo Era. It has some fantastical elements, but is primarily a mystery/thriller with an expensive world. And the use of wit as a weapon.
Arc One: Chapter One to Chapter Eighteen
Arc Two: Chapter Nineteen to Chapter Forty
Arc Three: Chapter Forty-one to Chapter Fifty-five
Arc Four: Chapter Fifty-six to Chapter Seventy four
It is under edits as of now, and I'm busy with the edits. All future chapters would be decided upon later once I have finished as the story is far from done. All chapters with the phrase edited next to it means that it has been edited.

Hey, i just read the whole thing, it looks pretty promising for now.
A bit dark, mysterious, makes me think about whether what could happen next.
Samurai stories have always been a 10/10 for me, but i think you should let us know the characters a bit more. I feel like the story is way too plunged on the storyline only. We learn information about the characters, but it feel likes it's just unneccesary and not important. Some of it is okay but most feels as if it won't help me build up a good enough view about the different charecters. Reviewing this may have been too soon, as i could not get a look at your full potential, but from what i've seen so far, it's pretty good!
Will be looking forward to the next chapters, keep up the good work! 4/5
