Young Samurai: The Way Of The Sword Book Review

Author: Chris Bradford
Series: Young Samurai


This kids’ historical novel is the second in a series of action-adventure stories set in 17th-century Japan. Follow the story of Jack Fletcher, an English boy who is striving to be the first gajin samurai.


The Story

One year into his training in samurai school and Jack is in real trouble. He’s struggling to prepare for the Circle of Three, an ancient Japanese ritual that tests courage, skill and spirit to the limit. At the same time, the kid from the U.K. is caught in a running battle with fellow student Kazuki and his gang.


Sounds bad, right? Wrong. These are actually the least of Jack’s problems. He knows his deadly rival – the Japanese ninja Dragon Eye – could strike at any moment, especially since his enemy knows Jack possesses the very thing he will kill for. Can Jack master the Way of the Sword in time to survive a fight to the death?
