Excellent book, after reading the short story "Flight of the Fox", it deepened the mystery in the book, making you want to know more, brilliant lead into the following books, yet is a story within itself...

After reading and enjoying a couple of T.J Perkins children's books I was her new adult book would be like. I wasn't disappointed, since I know nothing about ninjas I was a bit worried about a reading a story about them, I admit there were a few words I didnt understand and had to figure out myself, like gi and sensei but the breezy writing and big air of mystery made it easy to get into and I finished up the book in a day.
I have to say though I didn't quite feel it had the tone of an adult book and at some points felt like I was reading a book for younger readers, not that this is a bad thing, I just think it leans more towards ya and would make a great gift for teenage boys (I'll certainly be holding onto it for mine) but I wouldn't let anyone younger than that read it due to some violent scenes.
I liked the heroic main character of Duncan and felt all the characters were explained really well so I knew who they were and what they were like, his romance with mayumi is sweet, if a little underdeveloped, would be great to see how they become closer in further books and I'm also very interested to see what happens next with Duncan and his abilities.

T. J. Perkins has a flare for writing stories with young heroes and heroines battling to become adults in strange and fantastic worlds. Art of the Ninja-Earth is no different and doesn't disappoint.
A modern tale with an ancient and mysterious flavour,Art of the Ninja is set in today's Japan and tells the story of Duncan,a Ninja in training in the Chaio village,whose world is about to be turned upside down.
Full of adventure,romance and wonderful imagery,the story is easy to read and will capture both YA and Adult audiences.
Ancient artifacts,masters of the Ninja Art,dangerous situations and a secret that threatens to destroy Duncan and everyone he loves,Art of the Ninja has it all and you won't be able to put it down!
I personally love Manga and Anime,and it's obvious T.J. Perkins put a lot of research into Art of the Ninja as it reads pretty much like a good Manga,so if you're a fan of the genre,this is a definite must read for you :)
I really enjoyed it and recommend it to anyone who loves Japanese tradition and a good adventure book.
Happy reading

I won't get into a plot summary or spill any spoilers, but I will say that T.J. Perkin's book, "Art of the Ninja - Earth (Shadow Legacy)" is a book filled with action that contains a few twists that will leave the reader guessing what will happen next. Right from the prologue you're thrown into the action, and it makes you wonder what more mysteries will be revealed in the latter portions of the book. Don't get me wrong, there are also some tender moments to show that this isn't just a book about ninja combat and training, they are still human after all. I believe this book has a nice balance between martial arts, family and friend issues, love, and the loyalty to community and clan. If you are looking for a very accessible, entertaining read, look no further than "Art of the Ninja - Earth (Shadow Legacy)".

I purchased T.J. Perkins book entitled "Art of the Ninja - Earth (Shadow Legacy)" for my 11 year old son, who is NOT a fan of reading. He is required to read 15 minutes a day for school, and that is done with frowns and "Do I have to?". Well, after he started this book, he actually read longer than his 15 minutes, and there were a few occasions where he was upset that he had to put it down and go to bed. He read this book without any fuss at all. The story pulled him in and kept his interest. Well written T.J.! I also downloaded this book on my kindle so that I could read it too. We can't wait for the next book in the series to come out.
