AVAILABLE NOW… THE KENSEI!

In Jon F. Merz's novel The Kensei, a battle-weary Lawson heads to Japan for a little rest and some advanced ninja training. But he no sooner steps off the plane than lands in the midst of a Yakuza turf war orchestrated by a shadowy figure known as the Kensei. With the help of Talya, a former KGB-assassin, Lawson must put a stop to the Kensei's organ trafficking networks, prevent the creation of an army of vampire-human hybrids, and save his own skin in the process.

    Why bother?

    I downloaded this book, then realized it was just a tease. So I haven't bothered to read it at all. If your going to allow a person to read your book, you should give them the entire book - not a tease.

    Hmmm...

    This book was very disappointing. It started off all right, but as it progressed, the plot became somewhat bland. There was also quite a bit of foul language scattered around. The book was very short(around 35 pages).

    Epic, Must read

    I now must read the rest of the books. I love vampire novels so this fit right, plus since its free there is no risk if you dont like it. But i cant see why you wouldnt like it.

    Dead drop

    Not my kind of book. I was bored until the end of this 34 pages. Its a book prequel, otherwise known as a teaser. Even though I was supposed to be teased into buying the real book, I was bored. Thank you for the freebie though.

    Nightmare Rarity chapter 23

    Sombra came up and stood next to them." What a wonderful show." He said in a somewhat ominus voice. Rarity nodded."And once we round them all up, we will rule all of Equestria. And someday, the world!" She cackled. They watched for hours before all the ponies had gone inside." Well, Nightmare, we'll leave you to watch Ponyville." Said Crysilis." I'll take Canterlot, and Sobra gets the Crystal Empire. Deal?" Both other ponies nodded." Good." She said, and then flew off with Sombra. Rarity sat on top of her old house, watching. She would be the new overlord of Equestria soon! Then somone tugged on her tail. She whilrled around to see a teary-eyed Spike." Oh, Spike." She said, backing away. She didnt want to hurt him." Rarity, i need you to go back to being yourself." He said." Remember your old self?"

    This is just a short story based on a book. It only 35pgs. It was okay, Mr. Merz didn't give a lot of information about exactly what they do. It has potential and maybe there is more details and information in the actually book.
