Jet Black and the Ninja Wind by Leza Lowitz & Shogo Oketani
(Book One in a Trilogy)

Jet Black is the last living female ninja in the world. There’s only one problem–she doesn’t know it.
Everyone else does, and they all want to capture her and uncover her secret–a secret she doesn’t even know she has.

Will the discovery of Jesus’s bone in Japan, the development of a totally ambiguous high tech language, and Navajo military strategy lead Jet to the ancient treasure on sacred Emishi land? When her mother dies, Jet must go to Japan to find the link between these three mysterious quests–or die trying.

Stalked by bounty hunters and desperately in love with the one man sent to kill her, Jet summons up years of buried training to unleash her hidden power. But are they strong enough to protect the treasure, preserve the ancient culture, and save a sacred mountain from destruction?

To emerge triumphant, can Jet become the ninja wind?
