From the author of the acclaimed Young Samurai series, comes a new saga by Chris Bradford. Having been a BIG fan of Young Samurai I must say I am thrilled with anticipation for Chris's new novel.Young samurai was an action packed, sword-fighting success,- and I'm hoping Chris Bradford can translate that into the modern day phenomenon.
