Aside from being famous actors, the Sprouse Bros. also have a book series. Check out our review of 47 R.O.N.I.N. Episodes One and Two!

Just Ordinary Teens

Just like the Sprouse Brothers, the main characters in 47 R.O.N.I.N. are twins. The story is set in modern-day New York City, where Mitch and Tom Hearn are two rich but ordinary 15-year olds. Mitch is the computer nerd and brainiac, while Tom is the cool skateboarder who loves video games and chicks. They're normally routine life gets interrupted when their father suddenly vanishes. They are suspicious something is wrong, and those feeling are confirmed when a ninja attacks them in a subway station. From there, the twins find out that their father and butler, Mr. Chance, have been keeping a big secret from them.

Young Heroes

After their subway encounter with the ninja, the boys go to Mr. Chance for answers. They find out their father and butler were part of the Japanese gang R.O.N.I.N. Mitch and Tom join R.O.N.I.N. in order to get their father back from a rival gang. Along the way they meet Laura Ting, a young female kung fu expert who is in a similar position. Together they find themselves in all sorts of adventures and battles in the underground New York scene.


Titles in the Series:

  • Episode One: The Revelation
  • Episode Two: The Showdown
  • Episode Three: The Getaway
  • Episode Four: The Seige
  • Episode Five: The Betrayal
  • Episode Six: The Comeback

  • The Bottom Line

    If you are a fan of the Spouse Bros. then you are not going to be disappointed with this book. The characters in 47 R.O.N.I.N. closely resemble Cole and Dylan Sprouse and there is great action! The plot is solid and there is a lot of suspense. It's a pretty easy read too, so once you start this book it is hard to put it down. 47 R.O.N.I.N. is definitely a winner in our eyes!

    (So, along with being a fanfiction of  The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time , this story is an attempt at a [character] x reader thing, with Duana representing the reader. It'll be Sheik x reader, but... well, you'll see how it works in the story. There'll be plenty of action and people-hitting to go 'round during it, and the buildup to the ship will be gradual. I promise that things that happen in parts 1-3 aren't necessarily terrible attempts at showing affection. I'm not sure how long it'll go, but it'll have at least ten parts of varying length. At the moment, I have four parts done, but I'll not be posting twice in a day. Feel free to voice any ideas or opinions through comments/PM! If you don't like it, I'd appreciate  constructive criticism , not a rant. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the story!) Part One A Man and a Lyre [Image courtesy of some random person on the Internet. Taken from Google Images.] Duana’s eyes snapped open. A forest. But her last memory was… of being cut into by a Thief's scimitar and falling… in the desert . Was this death? She grunted; attempted getting up. Failed. The nausea finally registered, and the trees spun about her vision. But she couldn’t go unconscious. The king’s forces could be anywhere. Duana would be easy pickings if she was unconscious and they happened to stumble upon her. A second attempt at rising succeeded, and she tightly gripped a tree, sagging against it as the spinning intensified, and she nearly vomited. Slowly, it faded, and she became alert again. She stood upright, looking around; scanning for signs of movement. Her sharp, red eyes at first saw nothing, then noticed a slight trembling of some undergrowth. Duana tensed, but knew she wouldn’t put up much of a fight--regardless of whether she actually fought or decided to run. Promptly, the swaying increased, and then the bushes parted… and a figure came into sight, heading straight towards Duana… ...with the red eye and tear on the navy blue tunic he wore. His eyes were also red, and his ears were pointed. The symbol was the symbol of Duana’s own race; a people trained in shadow and dedicated to protecting the royal family as well as their country, but who had failed miserably in it. Duana gasped in relief, releasing the tension. “I was so paranoid that you were someone working for Ganondorf….” The young man, a fellow Sheikah, tilted his head and frowned. “Ganondorf? He was exiled two decades ago.” “Wha…?” “Nabooru, Sage of Spirit, is now temporarily serving as the Gerudo queen until the next male is born. How do you not know this?” “I….” He peered at her. “What tribe are you from?” “Kakariko.” For a few seconds, he remained staring silently, his face unreadable. “What is your name? And who is your father?” “Duana. My father is Alechjo.” “Alechjo… he doesn’t have a daughter named Duana.” “What… what tribe are you from, then? What is your name?” He paused, drawing himself from thought. “Sheik, son of Geron, of Kakariko. You seem discombobulated. Are you alright?” Duana smiled. Her lips parted to say something, but another wave of nausea slammed into her. It felt like a punch, and she lurched, but the tree kept her upright. “I’m sure you’re not alright,” Sheik firmly said. As he dug through a pouch on his belt, Duana then noticed the lyre peeking around him, held in place on his back by a leather strap running across his chest in a diagonal line. Some of his blond hair escaped a ponytail a few inches long, hanging around his face as it was bent to see inside the pouch.
