The war with the spirit world has begun...

In a world of mysticism and honor, a war is brewing. Spirits launch attacks against humans as, in the shadows, a terror lurks just beyond sight.

Michiko, daughter of the warlord Konda, must brave the dangers outside her father's fortress to consult holy monks and the orochi, snake folk with a strong connection to the spirit world. Yet when Michiko meets Umezawa, a thief and black magic user, she realizes that to stop the war that is about to sweep the land, she may have to make alliances with her enemies.

And the most dangerous foes may be her friends...

The story is decent, but the the book contains numerous spelling and grammar errors throughout, enough so to make you read a sentence several times over just to be sure you read it correctly in the first place. All three books are this way, but if you can manage past the errors, it becomes a decent read.

This book is one of the best I've ever reaed. So far it's the best book of the magic series. The book is very action-packed and all the characters and their own energy and life to the book. If you like to read fiction/fantasy, this is one book you have to read!

Evenly paced, with few areas that can be considered either dull or overly exciting. Well written in its sense of imagery and description of action, if a little less so as regards characterization. You'll find, though, as you read it that words are clearly missing or misused. A fault that I can only blame on editing, a fault that detracts from enjoyment. As I stand now I don't know if I'll continue to book two or not. Overall, slightly above average.

in the book, a character named toshi appears to be a common theif who takes what others own, or stole themselves.he starts his journey after being attacked while negotiating with the nezumi (rat people).after reading further into the book, you find that toshi is not only a theif, but a skilled wizard who uses kanji lettering and some power from the kami(spirits that represent every living thing in kamigawa).later in the book(3 or 4 pages later) you find out that the living and thinking bodies on the planet(humans, kitsune, akki, nezumi, moon people, and the dreaded snake people orochi) are at war with the kami and therefore no longer worship them as they did before.in all this is a great reading choice and if you liked this you probably enjoy other fantasy stories like: the lord of the rings, harry potter(i don't, but you might), and the books i am currently reading, the lost age of merlin series. good luck with your reading.

With the theme already set to Chinese Samuri, with riffraff of honor and duty and all that already hinting, I had a feeling that Outlaw might be quite a dull read, with long speeches about those topics and such. However, I was surprised to find that the book was just as good as ones in the Onslaught Series, also giving good comparison to the Mirrodin block. I highly enjoyed the thought process of Toshi Umezawa (Or whatever his name is) and many others things, especially the treachery of a few certain someones. (No comment) Definately reccomended if you've ever read a Magic the Gathering Book.
