Balsa is a rarity, a formidable bodyguard who wields a spear and just happens to be a woman. The Second Prince Chagum of New Yogo has been graced with a rare honor. He has become the Moribito a vessel chosen to deliver the egg of the Water Spirit to its home in a far ocean. More unusual is the Mikado's order to destroy these three exceptional beings for the supposed good of his empire.

From official release/information:

Product Description: Balsa was a wanderer and warrior for hire. Then she rescued a boy flung into a raging river -- and at that moment, her destiny changed. Now Balsa must protect the boy -- the Prince Chagum -- on his quest to deliver the great egg of the water spirit to its source in the sea. As they travel across the land of Yogo and discover the truth about the spirit, they find themselves hunted by two deadly enemies: the egg-eating monster Rarunga . . . and the prince's own father.
