Product Description

Young Samurai: The Ring of Fire is the sixth book in this blockbuster series by Chris Bradford



JACK FLETCHER FACES HIS TOUGHEST CHALLENGE YET.



After a snowstorm forces him to take shelter, Jack comes across a village in need of protection from raiding mountain bandits. Torn between moving on or helping, Jack is persuaded to stay and fight the villagers' cause.



But Jack is the first and only samurai to do so. Now he must enlist other warriors to the villagers' aid before the bandits return to steal their harvest. No easy task when the reward is so little and he is a foreigner. If only he had his friends to call on...



Using the Ring of Fire, can Jack overpower the bandits and win?



'A fantastic adventure that floors the reader on page one and keeps them there until the end' - Eoin Colfer



Chris Bradford has trained in karate, kickboxing and samurai swordsmanship. He earned his black belt in Zen Kyo Shin Taijutsu, the secret fighting art of the ninja.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fiction series 30 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My 12 year old son loves these books and has been completely captivated by the Samurai series. They have to be read in order as they each follow on from the one before.
Also loved Chris Bradford's "Bodyguard". I think this author knows how to inspire boys.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lives up to the Hype 3 Aug 2011
By Parm TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
So having been sent a copy of this book i felt obliged to read it, im not a massive fan of grown ups reading kids books, if you want to know if a kids book/ Young Adult book is any good, ask a kid/ Young Adult...not an old fart.
But i was mildly surprised with this one, all the hype and marketing blurb about awards etc... usually leave me suspicious and cold to a book, and i was sceptical about this one. However this is an author who lives his subject matter and it comes across in the writing, so the guy can kick and punch and throw and swing a sword, but can he write...simple answer is yes, the characters are engaging, the action is real and the style of writing draws you in, and does not talk up or down to the reader, it just is, and its written in a style that while easy is not simplistic.

I would have no hesitation in buying this for my nephews and nieces.

Another EPIC adventure from the LEGENDARY author Chris Bradford!!! Ever since I learned about it ( about 6 mounths ago ) I have been waiting more than I could handle. ( By the way, the NINJA : First Mission was AWESOME! ) I was so excited I read the Ring of Fire in about 6 hours. It's great to have Jack reunite with his friends. But no spoilers!!! I can't wait for the Ring of Wind! So all I have to say is : Way to go, Chris!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Very Best Of 9 Aug 2011
Format:Paperback
I've bought the three first books in Dutch, but I couldn't wait anymore, so now I'm buying the series in English. I say The Ring of Fire is the best book in the whole series. As always, you learn something about the Japanese life, which is very interesting. That, and the action, makes Young Samurai a unique young adult series. You start to know the characters, which is always a good sign. What I like specially about this book, is the fact that for the very first time since Jack is on his way to Nagasaki, he isn't alone anymore. Now he has friends who support him - which is another reason why these books are very "attractive". They explain the meaning of friendship. Personally, I think this is the most happy ending of all six written books by now. I REALLY LOVE THIS SERIES!

From a Dutch speaking Young Samurai/Chris Bradford admirer.

This is a really good book. I like the fact that almost the whole book is taken up by a battle. I love the way he gains the trust of the farmers and how he meets his old friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good value item and a great read.
The only thing I am really cheesed off about by this book is that it was not put on general release. He should have refused to agree to it only being available on one day.
