TOMODACHI: THE EDGE OF THE WORLD 
By Simon Higgins
It’s 1543 and English teenager Daniel Marlowe has been thrown into a harrowing first contact situation. Separated from his diplomat father by a shipwreck, he's stranded in a Japan torn by vicious inter-clan warfare. Spies, deserters and masterless warriors are everywhere.

Kenji, a warlord’s son, has an equally dire problem. He’s fled an obligation with a stain on his honour and must get home despite roaming bandits and clashing armies waiting in his path.

Courageous orphan Otsu, born of samurai blood and forced to flee her commoner hosts, has her own chilling secret, linked to the weird doll called Chiyo that she carries inside her kimono.

Fated to become ‘tomodachi’ -friends- these three young travellers are also destined for dangerous adventures as they cross a beautiful land haunted by the shadow of the sword.

Past Praise for Tomodachi by Simon Higgins

‘Higgins’s writing is a joy to read.’
- GoodReading Magazine

‘Tomodachi is not only a great action-packed ripping yarn which is sure to appeal to all ages, it is also a terrific historical novel which presents Japan’s feudal era in fascinating detail.’
- Pamela Freeman, Winner of the NSW History Prize for Young People

‘The prose is clean and simple and the story quick… Higgins, who has visited Japan, China and the Philippines to study martial arts, uses his experiences to contrast the differences between English and Japanese culture of the period. He has also craftily explained important Japanese terms within the text and left the rest to the glossary, which expounds nicely on some concepts mentioned only in passing…the stage is set…for an entertaining and informative series.’
- The Courier Mail, Author and Literary Critic Jason Nahrung
