COMING IN AUGUST 2022!!
All Ulman Jiraz wants is a simple life, continuing his ancestral tradition of forging gods-blessed blades and teaching his family martial art. But when the ancient bloodsword is stolen from his family shrine and the handsome Heir to the First House gatecrashes his martial arts school, it's clear that Ulman's life will be anything but simple. Whether or not the two can find the bloodsword and protect the Heir from his power-hungry, usurping mother will depend on if the two can manage not to kill each other first.
