JET BLACK AND THE NINJA WIND:
A Novel for Young Adults and other Peaceful Warriors
by Leza Lowitz and Shogo Oketani
Two tribes. A hidden treasure on a sacred mountain. A secret code that must be broken.
A mysterious assassin who must be stopped.
Jet Black is a ninja. There's just one problem--she doesn't know it.
Everyone else does, and they all want to capture her and uncover her secret---a secret she doesn't even know she has.
When her mother dies, half-Japanese 17-year old Jet must go to Japan to protect a hidden treasure in her ancestral land. Though terrified of her mission, if she doesn't fight to protect her world, who will?
Jet's powers must be strong enough to protect the treasure, preserve the ancient culture and save a sacred mountain from destruction. But there's a price on her head, and the only way to take it off is to kill the man she loves.
Can Jet put the blade over the heart to save her own life first?
￼Can she triumph as the last living female ninja in the world?
JET BLACK AND THE NINJA WIND is "Crouching Dragon, Hidden Tiger" crossed with "Indiana Jones" and "The Da Vinci Code," connecting the stories of the Navajo and Japan's indigenous Emishi warriors.
