Enjoyed the re-do of history with dragons. Loved that Mr Calbraith paid attention to the cultural identity of each of the characters. Very solid characters also, I had no issue believing the confusion, & motivations of the teens as well as the adults as they deal with each new situation. Can't wait to get the rest of the story...

Bran, Sato and Nagomi are back in this unusual story that blends historical fiction, set in imperial Japan, with fantasy, dragons and a touch of magic. The Warrior's Soul picks up where The Shadow of Black Wings leaves off. Bran is in mortal danger and disguised as a Samurai, he flees with Sato and Nagomi in search of his lost dragon. Evil however is close behind and at ever turn. James Calbraith does a wonderful job at weaving fact and fantasy into an alternative but very realistic history that pulls the reader into a rich tapestry of landscape, intrigue and history. While the story focuses on Bran and his friends, there are a few sub-plots with numerous characters, and that can get a bit confusing (especially since the names are almost all Japanese sounding). That said, I would still recommend this series.

This book has a good storyline and it flows fairly well. The only problem is that this book along with all of the others in this series is relatively short. The first two books could easily have been one book

After reading the first book in this series I was intrigued. The author created an interesting world where many ancient peoples had never been conquered/overrun and so maintained their cultures. The main characters were not so interesting but I had hopes things would improve in the next two books. Things started to speed up but multiple shifting between POVs made it difficult to keep track of the story and too many characters were introduced to easily keep track of. There also seemed to be a need for an editor, since there were many instances of the completely wrong word (that sounded a little like the right word) being used, and strange descriptions, especially of inanimate objects. Overuse of titles for the characters (like "the wizardess" and "the priestess") were distractingly annoying and it would have been much better simply to use the character's name. Action sequences were difficult to follow and, with POV switching, so was the story at times.

I think this author definitely has potential but just needs some polishing. The ideas, such as the way magic and dragons are commonly used in the world, were interesting and very creative, but style of writing and clearness of the story needed improvement.

Beware, this is a book in may be a never ending series, and I do not see how the author can take a rather weak (in my opinion) premise and continue to milk it.

I enjoyed it. It was a good quick read with a couple of story lines going on at once. Entertaining.
