Japan is threatened with the war, and Jack Fletcher may have to face his greatest battle yet. Samurai are taking sides, and soon, Jacks warrior training is put to the ultimate test.

But first Jack must recover his fathers prize possession from the deadly ninja Dragon Eye. Can Jack defeat his ruthless enemy? Or will the ninja complete his mission to kill the young samurai?

The 3rd book in the Young Samurai series is all about loyalty and sacrifice(which there’s a lot of). It was a story that will stick in the minds of it’s readers forever. The book was by all means terrific but had the saddest ending. By the end of the book I was so mad at Chris Bradford for killing all the characters you slowly come to love in the first two books.

The thing that was really surprising and that really got to me was the fact that only one of Jack’s enemies died the rest lived and went on to actually the war! But as usual we forget all about that stuff as Chris Bradford writes yet another amazing story. That is filled with action, suspense, and of course numerous deaths.

I’m still not too sure if this is the last book but I sure do hope he writes a 4th book. Just like with the first two books, I recommend this to to boys and girls but, but I think this one would be more suitable for ages 12 and up.

  1. Great review! I have not heard of the Young Samari series but I will most definitely be telling my brothers about it! This sounds exactly like the type of book they'd love to read!
