"Rose — a clone of the great Emperor Idea — is reluctant to assume his position as the emperor's replacement. But when Idea's body is stolen and all hell is about to break loose, the Imperial Authorities have no choice but to force Rose to become the inspiring figurehead he was bred to be. A challenge from Migime, the man in possession of Idea's body, motivates Rose to rise to the occasion, though it means putting himself at great risk. Also, more is revealed about Ririka — the imperial guard who has befriended Rose — and her relationship with the departed Emperor." - WorldCat - ISBN 1401211224

"With no memories and only a rose-shaped scar on his forehead as a clue, he ponders his legacy while on the run with the girl who rescued him from a group of armed warriors. She takes him to a scientist who identifies Rose as the Emperor's clone and believes that this young boy must assume the mantle of leadership. But opposing forces with their own agenda have created another clone from the Emperor's DNA... and now the struggle for power begins!" - WorldCat - ISBN 1401211216
