The invasion of the Warui ninja was the biggest event that had ever happened in the small town of Sera, Missouri. Now, in the summer of 1992, something even more defining is happening.

Meet the Author

Jeffrey Allen Davis was born on March 2, 1975, in St. Charles, MO.The youngest of three boys, he was sheltered by his loving mother. Instead of going out to parties when he was in high school, he stayed at home and watched 80s ninja movies or played RPGs with his fellow geeks (a term that he uses affectionately). These experiences have found their way into his writing. His first book, "Invasion of the Togakura", was released in 2003 by Publish America. It's sequel, "Klandestine Maneuvers", was published by the same company in 2005. After a five-year hiatus from publishing, Davis founded a new press for his third book, "Lily's Redemption." A rewrite of his first book, retitled "Invasion of the Ninja," was released in 2013.

Davis is a licensed Baptist preacher and lives in the St. Louis area with his wife, daughter and two stepchildren.

    Sophomore Syndrome

    I must admit that I was waiting for this sequel to INVASION OF THE TOGAKURA for some time when the author's website mentioned that it was coming. Was it worth the wait? You be the judge. POSITIVE ELEMENTS: As with the previous book, the characters here are devoted to one another. The book introduces Louis, an African-American boy who joins Adventure. We also get to meet Alex, whose note was in Shawna's Bible in the first book. The characters never back down from their ideals regarding the racist villains. SPIRITUAL CONTENT: Jamie and Max visit Shawna's church a Pentecostal church with all of the worship style detailed. The author takes great care to show how this style of worship might seem to somebody who has never seen it before. A belief in God dictates the actions of several characters. A child says a heartfelt prayer when she is kidnapped. Shawna has a premonition. I'm not sure where the author is going with this, as it isn't really discussed. SEXUAL CONTENT: Jamie and Shawna kiss a few times. Max kisses a girl, then she returns the act of affection with gusto. I was somewhat put off by this, as the two of them are supposed to be thirteen. Yoshi swims in a revealing bikini, then acts embarrassed when her boyfriend comments about it. Later, she jogs in a tank-top, also feeling embarrassed when she attracts stares. One hero is nearly seduced by an older woman, but their copulation is interrupted. The same hero later nibbles on a different girl's ear, but they are, once again, interrupted. VIOLENT CONTENT: As with the last book, this is the biggest deterrent. The violence doesn't seem as 'slapstick' as before, and the head villain kills one of his own men, after shooting him in the leg to keep him from running. The same killer also goes to kill three children, but is stopped by one of the heroes. CRUDE LANGUAGE: Though actual words are not mentioned, the author merely tells us that a character swears. Minor words, like 'butt' show up. The villains, who are racists, use some racial slang words. DRUG AND ALCOHOL CONTENT: A villain chews tobacco and spits on the floor of a bar. One character, who is presumably under 21, orders a beer, but his older friend makes the bartender bring him a milk, instead. OTHER NEGATIVE ELEMENTS: The heroes gamble the lives of three kidnapped children on a plan that doesn't seem very probable, though it does work. The introduction of so many new characters means less time for some others. Notably, Dave and Buster have little page time. I really missed the latter, as he seemed to be the voice of reason in the first book. Also, the price tag is the same as the first book, which is a little high for a trade paperback. CONCLUSION: The sophomore effiort of Jeffrey A. Davis feels like the EMPIRE STRIKES BACK of the series. The 'TO BE CONTINUED' note at the end shows that it is leading into another story, though the more mature matter of this book, coupled with Shawna's strange premonition, cause me some worry. Saving the book from a three-star rating is the short story at the end. In THE PRICE OF REBELLION, we are taught a lesson about modesty, as well as respecting our parents and our friends.
