This book I could not put down! I would suggest it to anyone who likes action packed books, but if you are going to read it I suggest starting with the two books before this one.

In this, the third book of the Young Samurai series, Jack Fletcher, the adopted son of the legendary samurai Masamoto Takeshi, continues his education as a samurai warrior. He still dreams of retrieving his father’s rutter, avenging his father’s death and returning to take care of his young orphaned sister in England. War is threatened in Japan and foreigners are being targeted for execution. Can a young, blond, blue-eyed samurai survive? This is another exciting episode in a wonderful saga.

I first read book three in two days. I had read all six books by November 2011, they have all been excellent. Book seven was released in May 2012. Doctor-at-Bass! T. A.

I greatly enjoyed this book. It is very intense and even at the end it leaves you at a cliffhanger. The battle was really believable, and I couldn't stop reading! Even now, I can't wait to get the next book. Great series, i would really reccomend it to anyone young or old.
