Summary

One year of training in samurai school, and Jack Fletcher is in real trouble. Not only is he struggling to prepare for the Circle of Three, an ancient ritual that tests a samurai's courage, skill and spirit to the limit, he's caught in a running battle with fellow student Kazuki and his gang. But these are the least of Jack's problems. He knows his deadly rival - the ninja Dragon Eye - could strike at any moment. Jack possesses the very thing he will kill for.

Really good!

Not as good as book 1 but it was still very fun to listen to! Once again the narration is outstanding as well. The ending was great too.

Fantastic story, so glad I lucked into this series

So I am currently in a weird place in life,,, I’m 40 going on 41 in a couple months, my job was eliminated because of Covid downsizing and I’m ina place of depression and listening to about 18-20 hours of audiobooks a day for the past year or so. I don’t do TV, I live alone, and I spend my time in the mind worlds that authors attempt to create....

This series is a solid 90/100 with the Harry Potter chronicles being a 96/100 imho to give you reference point of how I judge them. ** if I based it just on the first two vs the first two books I’d even give this series a slightly higher score like 93/100

Amazing...

I didn’t know if I was going to like this series at first. It took a second for me to get into it. But when I did there was no going back, now I can’t get enough. And hope all the young samurai come to audible. The performance was great the story was great I can’t praise it enough. Might not be for everyone but it was definitely for me. Highly recommend.

Enjoyable story

A fun story with fun characters. I love the setting of this book being in late era feudal Japan and getting to imagine I'm in Japan during a time when the Samurai were prominent. My only complaint is that the narrator is horrible at pronouncing Japanese words, but it's tolerable.
