Overview

Crane (The Five Ancestors Series #4) by Jeff Stone

Hok, a crane-style Kung Fu master, is also a master at hiding. For the past 12 years, she has hidden the fact that she is a girl. Now her rogue brother, Ying, and his army have placed a huge price on her head. Fortunately, she manages to make it to Keifeng where she finds her mother and a "round-eye" with the very funny name of Charles. Together Hok and Charles start to make some sense of the magnitude of Ying's plans.

This book was so good (i mean fanatasic). It shows the trials and tribulations of what not only a girl but a girl monk went through back in those days. I can not wait for the next one to come out.

As I read this book to my child, I had to explain how a brother could want his sister dead, a girl would have to pretend she is a boy, and what a 'round-eye' is. But this is good, since it gets a child, and the reading parent, to learn more and actually expand the book while doing so. It also tells of the similarities and the differences between cultures and how we 'all' deal with things similarly and differently.

Once I read from the first page, I was really captivated in Jeff Stone's writing. He is awesome! Crane brings you into mixed emotions, how there could be tears and joy. This book is packed with action and kung-fu, the value of friendship, and more. This book is good! Really, you will get so into this book. I loved it! I really can't wait for the next book. Jeff Stone is an amazing and inspirational author. Keep writing Jeff! Again, Crane is an outstanding choice for a book.

This book can't be rated for its greatness! The only word close to it is out-of-this-world! Once you read it, you'll never believe what happens and what decisions are made. Believe me, there are of course greaty threats to face who are even stronger.

The story Crane clips along at a lightning fast pace, and has many cliffhangers to encourage the reader to read further.I have been a big fan of Jeff Stone since the first book Tiger came out and will continue to read the series for years to come. I would recomend this book to any reader. I cant wait until the next book in the series comes out. Keep writing Jeff Stone and you will thrill hearts for years to come.

This book is amazing. With in the first page, it pulls you into this wonderful story of surviel and making hard choices. Hok has a strengh in her that makes you think she was a real person. The writing itself makes you think you were right there, seeing everything you read.

All the five ancestors books are the best books I've ever read but this is not my most favorite. Also, for the fifth book I thought it was supposed to be dragon next. What happened to Long?

This is book #4 in the "Five Ancestors" series and by far the best so far. It's exciting from start to finish. I loved learning all about Hok and how wonderful she is. Alot of fighting in this one.
