As I reflect back upon the many martial arts books that I have read, the majority of them have a very common problem; those books projected the image of the true masters being people with abilities that defy common experience. Robert Jay Arnold shows that this is not really the case. The Tales of Master Trey’s Flawless Outlaws avoids the trap of depicting martial arts masters as supernatural beings and instead, manages to show the people in the examples as real, flawed, but incredibly disciplined individuals. Real Superheroes.
Lester C. Holmes
We meet three sets of three individuals in each his/her chapter. They had all been instructed in various prettily named martial art movements by Master Trey, and then carried on training by themselves. There is also an element of magic involved. The characters face up to various obstacles, temptation as it were, and find that their exercises help them get their priorities right.
They finally all converge, becoming a team to fight evil creatures who are trying to cause people in the rest of the world to value-the-wrong-things.
There is only a hint of sex, the fighting scenes are quite anodyne, but the author does seem to have had trouble cutting and pasting his sentences, especially in the chapter about Letlo. There was sly humor, I liked the excessive trap builder, Forest. If you liked to read tales of Robin Hood and his merry men struggling under an oppressive regime when you were younger, you can meet some new outlaws facing modern ethical dilemmas. I do not know if all the colourful terms represent well known movements or not, as I am not into marital arts, but it was clear that they could be used in attack and defence.
First,whoever checked for grammer errors "sailed"!Most important.....why so much fantasy ?? I "finally" finished the book! This book reminded me of way back when I began M/A.I remember going to the movies with other M/A's to see the M/A movies.I walked out when I saw a guy bend & leap to the top of a roof from the ground! This book did have some good points but the fantasy was just too unreal.Just my view.
The general concept of the book was interesting, and the characters were definitely unique. However, the author seems obsessed with bringing sexual imagery into the story, and I don't appreciate the literary pornography.
