"Kagome is a modern Japanese high school girl. She has always been the sort who never rally believed in myths and legends, even though her grandfather is obsessed with old stories, the family huse is crammed with mystical talismans, and everything around her seems to have a legend attached to it. But that all changes one day when a hideous, otherworldly creature pulls her out of her own world and into Japan's ancient past! There she discovers more than a few of those dusty old legends are true, and her destiny is linked to one legendary creature in particular--a doglike half-demond called Inu-Yasha! Once in the past, Kagome discovers that she wasn't pulled into the past by accident--her very life is linked to the events of hundreds of years past by the mystical Shikon Jewel, or "Jewel of Four Souls." Is Kagome really the reincarnation of the priestess who once guarded the jewel? The same one who nearly killed Inu-Yasha...?" -- Back cover.
