Publisher's Summary

One year of training in samurai school, and Jack Fletcher is in real trouble. Not only is he struggling to prepare for the Circle of Three, an ancient ritual that tests a samurai's courage, skill and spirit to the limit, he's caught in a running battle with fellow student Kazuki and his gang. But these are the least of Jack's problems. He knows his deadly rival - the ninja Dragon Eye - could strike at any moment. Jack possesses the very thing he will kill for.

Amazing...

I didn’t know if I was going to like this series at first. It took a second for me to get into it. But when I did there was no going back, now I can’t get enough. And hope all the young samurai come to audible. The performance was great the story was great I can’t praise it enough. Might not be for everyone but it was definitely for me. Highly recommend.

Enjoyable story

A fun story with fun characters. I love the setting of this book being in late era feudal Japan and getting to imagine I'm in Japan during a time when the Samurai were prominent. My only complaint is that the narrator is horrible at pronouncing Japanese words, but it's tolerable.

Really good!

Not as good as book 1 but it was still very fun to listen to! Once again the narration is outstanding as well. The ending was great too.

Fantastic and fast-paced sequel
