Book Descriptions

 

Kyosei

From the tranquil village of Kyosei to a dystopian world governed by artificial intelligence, Qin must navigate two realities to save his home. Meet Qin, a young musician deeply connected to his idyllic village, Kyosei. When his village is invaded, Qin feels a profound sense of loss and betrayal. As Qin embarks on a perilous journey to Founder Mountain, he finds himself in a world unlike any he's known—a society controlled by artificial intelligence. Through this journey, he discovers the courage to confront not just external threats but also his own inner demons.

If you're captivated by stories that immerse you in Japanese culture and speculative fiction, 'Kyosei' is a thought-provoking journey you won't want to miss. Set against the backdrop of a Japan both ancient and futuristic, this tale weaves in elements of traditional Japanese music, folklore, and customs, making it a rich tapestry of cultural exploration.

When he finds himself part of a dark scheme disguised as "volunteerism," he is sent to Nanking, the ancient capital of China. There, he witnesses the atrocities of war and is torn between his duty and his conscience. Amidst the violence, Neda discovers an unexpected ally in Yufei, a fiery Chinese girl he saves from violation. Together, they find solace in their shared love for Chinese history and culture, even as they work to protect the vulnerable citizens of Nanking.

Enter the Blockchain

In Fukuoka, Japan, Airi, a young Jamaican-Japanese woman, is on the brink of revolutionizing society with her blockchain company. But when a climate change-fueled tsunami devastates her city, she's thrust into a leadership role she's not sure she's ready for.

As she grapples with her own insecurities and the weight of her African and Japanese heritage, will she rise to the occasion or crumble under the pressure?

The story unfolds in a Japan that serves as more than just a backdrop; it's a character in itself, rich in history and complexity. Airi's journey is a deep dive into the cultural nuances of Japan, from its innovative spirit to its ancient traditions.

Knives and Ropes

In a narrative woven with sensual tension and unyielding prose, 'Knives and Ropes' takes you on a journey through the darker corners of Japanese society.

Meet Hino, a master of shibari, the ancient Japanese art of rope bondage. Living a marginalized life as a trans-woman in a conservative society, Hino's world shatters when her high-profile husband becomes the victim of a violent hate crime. Fueled by grief, she embarks on a vengeful crusade that is as sensual as it is deadly.

Enter Detective Wa Otsuka, a level-headed investigator with Fukuoka's Police Department. As he delves into a series of crimes targeting LGBTQ oppressors, he finds himself entangled in Hino's complex web. The case forces Wa to confront his own hidden self and unlocks a blade-infused secret from his past.

Can Mansa release the technology to the masses before it's too late?

Meet Mansa, an African-Japanese innovator in art and alternative investing, relishing the serenity and traditions of rural Japan. He dreams of building a dome house on a plot of land, embracing the Japanese way of life. But when his favorite musician, Uncommon, allegedly commits suicide, Mansa's idyllic life is shattered. He finds himself plunged into an international conspiracy that threatens not just him, but the global African diaspora.

As he delves deeper, Mansa discovers that a greedy billionaire mogul is behind the music and the suppression of a groundbreaking technology. With his community in peril, Mansa enlists the help of his friends in Japanese politics and the hacking world. But as he navigates the complexities of being a foreigner in Japan, he realizes the fight is coming to his doorstep, a fight he's not prepared for.
