“Death is more universal than life. Everyone dies, but not everyone lives”
Jack Fletcher is shipwrecked off the coast of Japan – his beloved father and the crew lie slaughtered by ninja pirates. Rescued by the legendary sword master Masamoto Takeshi, Jack’s only hope is to become a samurai warrior. And so his training begins . . .
But life at the samurai school is a constant fight for survival. Even with his friend Akiko by his side, Jack is singled out by bullies and treated as an outcast. With courage in his heart and his sword held high, can Jack prove himself and face his deadliest rival yet?
My brother has been trying to get me to read these books for eternity. Finally, I made him proud. I will admit, that the entire reason that I never finished the first book, the first few times, was because of the first few chapters. Chapters 1-5 can be really boring. So I had my brother tell me pretty much what happened. Now having finished the series, I understand that this was kind of a disadvantage. So, if you like what you read in this blog post, read the series. If you don’t like the book, and you have passed chapter 5, then feel free to put it down. But, if you haven’t got to chapter five, KEEP ON READING! I promise you, it gets better.
“I know not how to defeat others, I only know how to win over myself. The real and most dangerous opponents we face in life are fear, anger, confusion, doubt and despair. If we overcome those enemies who attack from within , we can attain a sure victory over any attack from without.”
“Tomorrow’s victory is today’s practice.”
“Revenge is self-defeating. It will eat away you until there is nothing left.”
“Seven times down, eight times up”
“Learn today so that you may live tomorrow”
