I am a huge fan of the Young Samurai series and have been waiting years for this book and it did not disappoint Great story and non stop action Excellent conclusion to the series. I Love Chris Bradford s writing style I have thoroughly enjoyed the book series from the beginning His ability to write an adventure story with thorough character development and depth is among the very best of authors This new story is equally engaging and I believe correct for the historic period I do hope he continues the series I Highly Recommend this book. Suspenseful,and action packed finale As a long time Young Samurai fan, I ve been waiting for book 9 since forever, and even after this long wait, it certainly did not disappoint If you haven t yet, please check out the whole series as well Even though this is meant to also be a stand alone adventure, it would mean so much if you ve read all the previous books Young Samurai is as great as always and I m glad it finally got the conclusion that it deserves. What a magnificent send off to this amazing book series I can t describe in words how great the entire series was I hate to say it but I almost cried when it ended, not because the ending was sad but that there will be no young samurai books As Geoffrey Chaucer once said all good things must come to an end In regard to how long it took to read About 6 hours straight for Me I ve read this series books1 8, 7 times through and now have completely read the series Best fiction series ever.
