Mike Carey and Jim Fern continue their story, bringing Japanese myth and legend into modern Tokyo. Following on from Crossing Midnight: Cut Here, this second book of the series sees Kai continue his quest to find his estranged twin sister, Toshi. But despite getting ever closer, he never seems to be able to grasp her, and instead gets tangled up with a supernatural serial killer. Meanwhile Toshi is training for a life of servitude. But she’s haunted by ghosts and demons, not least of all the spirit her father inadvertently promised her to in return for her safe passage into the world.
