Now from Rockport Publishers and including new content: Saigami, Volume 2.

Saigami, Volume 2 continues the journey of the young teenage woman Ayumi as she discovers more about her astral flame powers, her adopted land of Aesztrea, and even her own identity.

The day of the Saigami Initiation Exam has come. Despite her best effort and newfound optimism, Earth native Ayumi isn’t ready for it. What will she do when she finds herself all alone again, and her best attempts come up short? New players have entered the contest, and Ayumi must determine how badly she wants to succeed in this new fantasy world. Can she become the warrior she wasn’t meant to be?

The Initiation Exam throws an unexpected curveball at young Saigami candidates, including Ayumi, who has arrived in this strange fantasy world under mysterious circumstances. While these young, powerful teenagers have no way of knowing, the contest strings are being pulled from the shadows, putting their future careers—and their lives—in jeopardy.

Ayumi and the others will have to act fast, be clever, and rely on unlikely alliances to survive this test. Can a fellow female Saigami initiate help Ayumi in her darkest hour? Refusing to be a damsel in distress, Ayumi’s not ready to go down without a fight, and her mighty new flame powers are burning hotter than ever!

Saigami is rated T for Teen, recommended for ages 13 and up.
