About the book
When a stranger tells Kadis to retrieve The Jewel of Nisawa, little does the young prince know that his life will change. On the brink of eighteen, Kadis seems to have everything: the love and support of his parents and friends and the adoration of the citizens of Kofu. But he’s plagued by a recurring nightmare and an eerie feeling that he’s being followed. When his grand uncle, the wise Shonin, goes missing, his mysterious note propels Kadis and his friends into a whirlwind journey to a fabled kingdom.
How is Kadis’s destiny connected to that of a forgotten kingdom? Will Sara, Shijo, Myo, Tara and Joi be able to protect their friend from danger? And will Kadis be able to find his courage when he truly needs it?
