A very entertaining and well written series. The characters are very well developed and the plot is superb. The only problem I had was remembering characters' names when they were Yamato but I have the same problem with Russian literature. In summary, I was so enchanted with the plot that, as soon as I finished "The year of the dragon", I went and bought and read "the Chrysanthemum Seal", the next book in the series. Now I am waiting for more.
I enjoyed these books and can't wait to get the rest of them.
EACH CHAPTER GETS MORE EXCITING. THE MAIN CHARACTERS ARE REVEALED AND FULLY EXPLORED SO RELATIONSHIPS ARE CLEAR. THE BOOK HAS IMAGINATIVE GORE AND LOTS OF BATTLES WITH DIFFERENT OUTCOMES. THIS IS A HIGHLY IMAGINATIVE TALE THAT UNFOLDS EACH CHAPTER.
