    One of my Favorites

    This book was very good. I loved the way that Chris took us back into 1700's Japan. It starts with a boy named Jack getting Shipwrecked on an unknown island. He is soon found by Masamoto, a famous samurai. That is all i will say. You need to read the book yourself. I highly recommend this book to teenagers and adults. it may not be appropriate for young readers because of some minor language used by the sailors. This book is highly recommended by me. Happy reading! :)

    To two below me.

    Your a "Ninja?" Prove it! I know i'm going againt the code of Bushido, rule 4, but i've had enough of people protending to be Ninja. How many rings are there and what do they represent? How many Ninjutsu Secret Fists are there? How do you do the Demon Horn Fist? What do the rings teach us? Don't belive i'm a master of Ninjutsu? Go to The Way of the Sword to learn about the two heavens. Watch who you chose to cross blades with, and look before you leap. ColwillDragon, Ninjutsu Mid-Level black, Gold Samurai.

    Angels review

    This book was a very good book. This is a book that was ment for people that have the patience to read and wate for the good parts of the book. So for those that dont under stand what im saying, its this, this book starts out good but then it gets boring when jack is on the ship during a storm. For some people the storm part makes people put the book down already but to those people i say push yourselves to read to night fall on the ship then you will start to like the book, especially since the ninjas come in at night. Im sorry if i spoiled that part to some readers but its the truth and to some people thats all i needed to say so you can read it. So overall this book was a very good book and i would recomend it to al readers.
