Overview

Sometimes a samurai's most dangerous opponent is herself.

Ever since their father's murder, Kimi and Hana have honed their fighting skills and prepared for vengeance against their vicious uncle Hidehira. They have become true warriors with the hearts of samurai.

Now their fight has become more than just a personal vendetta. As Hidehira's quest for power continues, he is destroying the province and is poised to invade the rest of the kingdom. After both girls are nearly killed in a fire while fighting their uncle's soldiers, their mother insists on attempting to enlist the support of the Shogun.

But at the Shogun's court, the sisters are torn apart by their differences, especially when they rediscover an old friend with a shrouded past. Danger lurks in the most elegant circumstances—behind the smiling face of an aristocrat as well as behind the mask of a ninja—and true peril awaits the sisters where they least expect it. . . .

Twin sisters Hana and Kimi had their whole world shaken by the death of their father at the hands of their uncle in a bid to replace him as samurai lord. The only other members of their family to survive Uncle Hidehira's brutal massacre were their mother and youngest brother, with whom Hana and Kimi were finally reunited in CHASING THE SECRET, only to be separated from their friend, Tatsuya, one of the few people who knew that they had disguised themselves as boys and learned how to fight in order to protect themselves from Hidehira. This third book in the SISTERS OF THE SWORD series picks up right where the previous book left off, with Hana and Kimi struggling to protect their mother and younger brother while mourning their separation from Tatsuya. Wearied by continually having to run away from their uncle's men, and with some of them bearing severe battle wounds, the family finds sanctuary in a monastery run by warrior monks, who support them in returning to good health and continue Hana and Kimi's training as fighters. But when a letter arrives from the palace of the Shogun, ruler of imperial Japan, the sisters are forced to put aside their swords for dresses and appear in court as proper ladies, alongside their mother and brother, in order to convince the Shogun of their uncle's cruelty and win his support in the fight against Hidehira. Like the two books before it, JOURNEY THROUGH FIRE presents an admirable mix of action sequences and moments in which readers observe the personal growth of Hana and Kimi, whose characters continue to provide inspiration for any strong girls facing the challenges of growing up. The introduction of a potentially new threat from a contingent of ninja creates an additional air of suspense and mystery as the girls try to discover who is after them - and why - before it is too late. While I personally preferred the previous books in the series, the open-ended conclusion to this book has still left me eagerly waiting for the next one.

This book is really great. if you plan on buying this then look on Amazon because I got my copy from them for six dollars(it was a hardback cover). So if you are looking for this book check Amazon first. I am sure there will be another book coming out soon. The story just seems like it isn't complete yet.

This book was awsome I loved it I can usually tell when things are going to happen in books but not this one in this one I couldn't tell at all all I'll say is there is an evil character that is gonna change Kimi and Hana's life even more also and old friend comes back spolier alert it's Tatysa (may be spelled wrong) I love this book and anyone should read this I also reccomend highly Daughters of the sea: Hannah by Kathryen Lasky it's very good and I can't wait til the fourth book comes out *smiles* :D READ IT!!!...... please :D

The first book in the series held my interest and attention throughout the story. As irritating as a cliffhanger can be, I could somewhat appreciate it in the first book. The following two bigs have felt like a let down since the first. This is not a Lord of the Rings adventure, so dragging on the same unfulfilled vengful quest through three books has run its course. In this last installment I felt like I was bring drug through it, knowing full well the storyline wasn't really going anywhere. I often wonder if in cases like these, if the author has gotten lost> to meet dealines plot twists are thrown in or characters are dramatically changed. My daughter was so dissappointed it made me curious to find out why. I hope the author can find her original inspriation or I can't help but think the 4th book won't be worth purchasing.
