Where once new ideas and beliefs were accepted, now the country's military dictator, the Shogun is shutting his country down to any outside influences.

Father Joaquim Martinez who left Portugal to make Hizen Province, Japan his home, has been quietly tending to the lives of his villagers, but everything is about to be thrown into turmoil, as the Shogun has outlawed Martinez's beliefs. Those who won't recant or accept banishment, face a death sentence.

With the threat of a massacre looming, and the Shogun's Samurai closing in, Father Martinez must decide, if he is willing to risk everything, to save those he has sworn to protect.

About Shaun Curry

Fascinated by Japan from an early age, Shaun Curry went on to study and work in Tokyo, where he developed a passion for the country, its culture and history.

An avid collector of rare books, maps and artefacts, he has spent more than ten years researching in the Papal Archives in Rome, the British Library in London, and the New York Public library, amassing the wealth of knowledge that enriches his writing in the Swords of Fire trilogy.

His expertise in feudal Japanese history has informed not only his fiction, but also numerous articles, and has led him to be featured as a guest on BBC radio. He is also a prolific speaker on the subject of Christianity in Japan.

A British and Canadian national, he now lives and writes in London.
