Overview

After a vicious ninja attack left him orphaned and stranded in Japan, Jack Fletcher managed to complete his first year of samurai school. Still, his troubles are far from over. The prejudice of his Japanese classmates has gained him dangerous enemies within his school, and Dragon Eye - the ninja who killed his father - is still after him. Jack's only hope of defeating them lies in surviving the Circle of Three: an ancient ritual that tests a samurai's courage, skill, and spirit to the limit.

For most, gaining entry into the Circle means honor and glory, but for Jack it's a matter of life or death. The winner will be trained in the Two Heavens-the formidable sword technique of the great samurai, Masamoto. Learning this secret is the only hope Jack has of protecting his father's rutter — the invaluable navigation guide of the world's uncharted oceans — from Dragon Eye.

Forced into a deadly battle, Jack's going to have to master the Way of the Sword. And his time is running out.

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Having completed the Way of the Warrior at Niten Ichi Ryu school, Jack is preparing to learn the Way of the Sword, the next discipline needed to defend his father's notebook and defeat the one-eyed ninja, Dragon Eye. When Masamoto announces a special challenge to learn his coveted fighting style, Jack knows this may be his opportunity. Though the second in Bradford's Young Samurai series, the work stands alone and doesn't require familiarity with the first text. Packed with staves, swords and martial arts, action dominates character development and historical setting. Jack's continual bemoaning of his outsider (gaijin) status in early-17th-century Japan quickly becomes annoying, especially for anyone vaguely familiar with the insular nature of traditional Japanese culture. The glossary and pronunciation guide will be quite helpful to curious readers, and the origami-crane directions add a touch of whimsy. Acceptable, but Jack could profit from a dash of wasabi. (Action. 9-12)

    ColwillDragon, Ninjutsu Mid-Level Black, Gold Samurai

    Want to learn about the Two Heavens or don't belive me? Here we go: The Two Heavens is a strategy that allows two swords two be used at once. The moves are designed to allow attack and defence simultaneously. If your life is on the line, you need all your wepons to be of service. While the two swords are the core to this technique, the essence of the Two Heavens is the spirit of winning - by using The Ring of Wind to be light and gracful and using The Ring of Earth to use watever you have as a wepon, thus following the same principle as in Ninjutsu. Watch who you chose to cross blades with, and look before you leap. ColwillDragon, Ninjutsu Mid-Level Black, Gold Samurai.

    Ok

    This book was ok but the problem is that when dragon eye killed jack the sensa just poped out of no ware and somehow managed to save jack before he died which really isnt that cool because once youget touched by the death touch your auto matically died. From angel
