I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and overall, the series is 5 stars. However, book 7 was all about pirates and these pirates are pretty brutal. I'm 38 and I felt the ruthless, unapologetic nature of the pirates was a bit over the top for a series that is meant for teenage boys.
That said, the story was great and the conclusion of book 8 is pretty awesome.

Chris Bradford's depiction of ninjutsu in midevil japan is awesome! The martial arts philosophy and techniques are actual techniques in taijutsu, kenjutsu, and of course ninjutsu. He understands the true meaning of what it means to be a true warrior, Bushido.

The Ring of Wind is as perfect as its predecessors! Lots of action and passion. A story with heart, full of life lessons. Chris, as always, gives us an interesting point of view of every party involved in the story, and not to mention that it has samurais, ninjas, and pirates!! what else can we ask for?
