5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing. 9 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is amazing. It fits in perfectly with the series. Just like the rest it's full of questions, answers and plenty of action. It keeps you on the edge of you seat and you just can't put it down. I've read it several times and I would happily read it again, along with the rest of the series. Thank You Chris Bradford.

5.0 out of 5 stars A non stop action story 6 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
A great short story full of continuous action, with a few surprises for the followers of the Young Samurai, but also very enjoyable for those not so familiar with the series.
