From a life of pleasant luxury and heart racing adventure, Yukihara Izumi is unexpectedly thrown into a world of poisonous malice and turmoil. For a not-so-average teenage girl of the modern world, fighting and shady work aren't all that new or surprising. However, similar situations in the Feudal Era are ruthlessly torturous, battering and definitely something anyone would wish to never experience, not even one as steadfast as Izumi. But she soon settles into the rough life with the Feudal Capital's downtown civilians.
Not so surprisingly, things aren't always as simple as they seem to be and don't remain so forever either. It took just one unexpected encounter with an unexpected stranger in dire need of help to turn Izumi's life upside down. Dragged into the dark depths of lies, insidious plots and dangerous people in a place where nothing is what it appears to be, it is purely survival of the fittest. The coldest, cruellest and most merciless Emperor to have ever dictated the Empire is not the only one she has to face but also his vicious and obscure vassals that have an eagle's eye on her every move.
It has always been easy for Izumi to keep up her inherent strength and determination no matter how dire the situation and that's what she plans on doing even after being thrown into a world of mayhem. But perhaps things can get a lot more complicated and out of hand when deeper emotions are involved - curiosity, deadly desire and suffocating possessiveness.
