For me the success of a work of historical fiction can be measured in the amount of curiosity it piques in the history of its era. This book did not fail in that regard. I soon found myself online researching names, events, and locations presented in Child of Vengeance. In doing so I discovered how artfully Kirk weaved his story into the history of Miyamoto as well as Japan. I also found the author's conclusions of samurai culture as discovered by the protagonist thought (and discussion) provoking.
My only complaint would be with the performance. The narrator could have used some coaching in the pronunciation of Japanese names.

great story, great voice by Mark bramhall, based on Musashi Miyamoto a legendary Samurai started off slow kind of first but once given a chance the story became progressively more interesting and by chapter 3 I wasn't able to stop listening to it it's very very good and would recommend it to anybody who loves samurai or knows of the history of Musashi
