5.0 out of 5 stars This is a wonderful story, beautifully told, 16 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a wonderful story, beautifully told. There is enough cabalistic magic to keep the fantasy fan happy. Then the tale unfolds logically and unhurriedly. The characters are believable and the setting of old New York is richly described. It develops into a tale of individual pschology in a close-knit community. I just wish I could find more of Helene Wecker's work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!, 17 Oct. 2011
I've just read back to back all five of the Chase Dagger series that S D Tooley as Lee Driver has published to date, plus the original short story Sara Morningsky. They are all excellent! Sort of X-Files meets James Bond in America. The stories are imaginative but coherent, romantic but full of exciting action. Simply well written. More, please, Sandy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bradford gets better and better!, 2 Sept. 2009
Chris Bradford has done it again! Even better! In book two of the Young Samurai series, Jack Fletcher struggles to become a samurai warrior in medieval Japan, and, if that was not enough, to avenge his father's murder and get home to rescue his sister. AND to do it all with bushido - true samurai spirit. Here Jack battles to join the Circle of Three who will learn the fighting technique known as the Two Heavens. He will need this to defeat the seemingly invincible ninja Dragon Eye. Jack has many friends and enemies - but which are which? There is an exciting fight on every other page, but the strength of the Young Samurai series is in its believable characters and their thoughts and emotions. Violence is ritualised and not glorified. Good is pitted against evil, but must not use its methods. To understand, you must read the book!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great adventure, 7 Aug. 2009
The Way of the Warrior is a tremendous adventure yarn, a page-turner for boys and maybe quite a few girls also. Chris Bradford has created convincing and likeable characters facing suitably evil and powerful villains. The experiences of Jack, Akiko and Saburo at samurai school in 1611 Japan ressemble in some ways Harry Potter's Hogwarts, where instead of quiddich they have martial arts training and contests with lots of authentic detail. I was intrigued to see how Chris would handle the potential danger of knife and sword glorification. He does so by describing the fears of the young fighters, and by showing how they must follow the samurai principles of bushido - rectitude, courage, benevolence, respect, honesty, and loyalty. As his teacher tells Jack, "The Way of the Warrior is not to destroy and kill, but to foster life. To protect it."

5.0 out of 5 stars This bird flies!, 3 Aug. 2009
This review is from: The China Bird (Paperback)
Bryony Doran's China Bird defies categorisation. It is very well written in a detailed literary fashion, but it is also quite sexy - or so it seemed to this reader. The setting is familiar - if you know Sheffield - but the action that is played out there is strangely exotic. Angela, an art student, is drawing a series of studies of Edward, a hunchback. Both, it seems, are searching for love and beauty, and find at least some of each. Don't expect fast action; just appreciate the sensitive and persuasive depiction of people under real life stress. This is a very pleasing and satisfying read.

June Crebbin brings history to life with this exciting tale of fighting men and the horses they ride. Just right for beginner readers who like plenty of action.
