Jack enters the mountains trying to louring his enemies after him instead of his friends. However samurai honour will not allow him to over look people in need. We see the return of a few of the original characters as well as the a couple the newbies.
As a martial artist as well I really love much of the insider knowledge that of Chris has, the little things like pushing your body beyond it's comfort limits, but still respecting that fact that there are limits. Another example is that it is continually stressed how much work and training goes into becoming a samurai, it is a not just giving someone a sword and teaching the a few moves and formation and saying defend yourself. It is a mindset, as well as physically gruelling, it is the mental aspects life handling doubts and fears the make the greatest difference. The first half of this book is a setup for the coming battle, some people might find this boring but I really thought all the little intricacies made the book for me. There are also parts of the book where Jack faces bigger more battle tested opponents and the results are the same as they would in the real world this just adds to the book appeal for me. Another great thing done well in this book, is the divide in Japanese society, the lowly farmers, the high born samurai and the ninja.
These books are are not really meant to be stand alone books. However each book has a satisfactory conclusion at the end of it, but as soon I finish one I want to read the next one. Even in this book I found myself wanting to read faster to see what happens next, then wanting slow down so the book would not finish.
Jack needed seven Samurai to help, Jack meets an old friend Saburo who agrees to help along with a small monk Yori both had trained with Jack, Hayatu, Youduu joined them, a ninja friend Miyuki had been following, the Samurai and Ninja did not get on, Jack and the others trained the farmers, Jack prepared defenses, they attacked the bandits camp to rescue the girls, fierce fighting broke out at the village, the bandits attacked from all sides, they caught Yori and prepared to burn him alive if they did not surrender, Miyuki rescued him, the bloody fight continues
Will Jack and his friends survive the fight, will Jack be able to continue his journey to Nagasaka and escape the Shogun's Samurai that are hunting him
My verdict, excellent book, excellent fighting, having read all the books was a little sad to see the storyline of this one linked to The Seven Samurai or the Magnificient Seven
