Jeffrey Allen Davis currently lives in the St. Louis, MO, area with his wife and two step-children, Jayson and Breeanna. He also has a lovely daughter, Kaitlyn, who can pretty much make him melt when she smiles at him.
Invasion of the Ninja: Book One of the ADVENTURE CHRONICLESby Jeffrey Allen Davis
Jamie and Yoshi are late twentieth century members of the Funakoshi ninja clan who were trained by Yoshi's uncle, Tanemura Funakoshi. When the Waruiyatsu, a sinister clan with an ancient grudge, attack Jamie's high school and hold his classmates hostage in an effort to bring Tanemura and his two students into the open, Jamie and his clan sister are forced to attempt a rescue.
Going along are a close group of friends, each with his own interest in the fighting arts. From Dave, whose muscle-bound frame and love of a good scuffle are overshadowed by his cheerful personality and kind heart, to Buster, whose Bible is his greatest weapon, each of their friends has a loyalty to them and each other that is stronger than the Waruiyatsu can ever fathom.
This is a story of courage, friendship, and faith ....

I was given a copy of this to review, but I would have gladly paid for it, if I knew how enjoyable it is! Jeffrey Allen Davis is good at making his story come to life. It had good action, kept moving at a great pace (I lost sleep because I didn't want to put it down), and had humor in all the right places! The characters are such that you can really care about them, and cheer for them. I recommend it to older teens especially, though adults will like it, too.
When I was a kid, all cinema experience happened via television, because--for the most part--I lived in the middle of nowhere. During the early 1980s, I became entranced with the world of martial arts, and Saturday morning re-runs of the 1970s TV series, "Kung Fu", started that journey for me. Next was the mid-1980s TV series', "The Master", "Sidekicks", and then "Ohara", which continued to fuel part of my destiny. It wasn't until 1989, however, at age sixteen, that I graced a movie theatre (for the first time in my life) about thirty miles from my hometown, which just happened to be "The Karate Kid: Part III (a coincidence, yes), and by then I was already a 1st dan (degree) black belt in Tae Kwon Do. Other than purchasing Black Belt Magazine throughout the 1980s on a regular basis, I never even remembered reading or seeing a fictional book about the martial arts--except for Chuck Norris' "The Secret of Inner Strength: My Story"--which was autobiographical, until I bought a copy of Jeffery Allen Davis' "Invasion of the Togakura", published in 2003. Now, ten years later, the author has re-released his 80s-90s martial art tribute, re-titling it, "Invasion of the Ninja: Book One of the Adventure Chronicles", with a great deal more content, and in my opinion, superbly written. If you're looking for an action-packed story with lots of character depth, and an endless supply of ninja, then look no further.
