When [[BigEater gluttonous]], underachieving schoolgirl Miaka Yuki and her best friend Yui Hongo find a strange book in the library, it changes their lives forever. ''Shi Jin Ten Chi Sho'' (literally, ''The Four Gods Earth and Sky'', but rendered as ''The Universe of the Four Gods'' in the North American release) is an ancient book that is a gateway into another world that resembles medieval China -- a gateway through which Miaka and Yui fall. Although Yui is sent back to Japan almost immediately, Miaka is trapped in the story. There she finds that she is the ''Suzaku no Miko'' -- the prophesied priestess of the god Suzaku, who must gather together seven holy warriors in order to summon the god and save the country of Konan from its enemy, the country of Kutou.
