From the Publisher
Even more than she wishes to destroy the celestial invaders who have killed her husband, wrecked her fields, and killed hundreds of her peasants, Lady Satsuma wishes to destroy the peasant who usurped his place, even over her own sons.
But now that they know that Heaven did not send the invaders, but that they simple come from the realms far from Earth, the people rush forth to attack the destroyers, instead of fleeing their strange, cutting ribbons.
A small victory brings the people joy, and they celebrate. But the insolent peasant knows no limits to his “celebration.”
What will the Lady choose? Justice, or revenge?
