Ancient monsters bite off more than they can chew in this action-packed adventure set in modern Japan
Kenny Blackwood arrives in Tokyo to spend the summer with his father and is stunned to discover a destiny he had never dreamed of when he finds himself in the middle of a hidden war that is about to explode.
