Powerful and sensual, Midnight is an intelligent, fierce fighter and Ninjutsu-trained ninja warrior. A devout Muslim, he takes sixteen-year-old Akemi from Japan as his wife, but their tumultuous teenage marriage is interrupted when Akemi is kidnapped and taken back to Japan by her own father, even though the marriage was consummated and well underway. To find her, Midnight must travel across three countries and numerous cultures, and meets people who change him forever, even as he changes them.
