Mel Beeby's eighth adventure takes her to medieval Japan, searching for a lost soul. Mel and Reuben have been studying Soul Retrieval, running through all manner of challenging scenarios in virtual reality, in order to learn the specialised skills necessary to rescue human souls. The two angels are sent to Japan, to try and re-unite a young girl's soul with her body, as she lies in a coma. It isn't her time to die. In their quest for the soul, Mel and Reuben have to enter a realm that's magical and exquisite, like an idealised Japanese fairy-tale dream. Feudal lords, fabulous magical castles, ninjas, wandering monks, waterfalls, demons and shapeshifters. But like all dreams, it has its dark side, and the Japanese afterlife has some extremely scary aspects. Mel and Reuben must stick together...and at the end, there is even a little hint of romance for our two angel buddies!
