Damn, Another Story I Forgot to Rate Highly

Reviewed at: Reckoning

This is a great little story.  The protagonist, a female ronin, is retired after fighting in a demon war 20 years ago in a mythical Japan.  Lo and behold, her retirement is interrupted when the demons reappear and strike hard.  But, armed with her sword, and an empowered demon (left?) arm, and a possibly-trusty sidekick, she'll find out where this started and put an end to it soon enough.

The characters are very solid.  The plot is straightforward, though given some of the complexities of worldbuilding and character, that simplicity is appreciated.  The grammar is flawless and the style of writing is compelling.

All in all, strong recommend.
