Publisher's Summary

In 13th-century Japan, the ronin Ken'ishi's fondest wish has been granted - he has found service with a powerful samurai lord.
But the underworld crime boss known as Green Tiger lurks in the shadows of Lord Tsunetomo's retinue, and Ken'ishi's honor is tested when learns his new master is married to Kazuko, the only woman he has ever loved. His unknown lineage holds dangerous secrets that could destroy him, and his sword, the magical relic called Silver Crane, holds the key to his past...and his future.
With enemies, temptation, and strife assailing him on all sides, Ken'ishi's very soul falls into jeopardy - even as Khubilai Khan's Mongol hordes plot their next attack. Can Ken'ishi defeat Green Tiger, defend his homeland from the barbarian invaders, and remain true to his heart, his lord, and his honor? If you love romance, intrigue and action on an epic scale, don't miss this stunning climax to the Ronin Trilogy.

My review is bias

The final book to one of my favorite trilogies, from one of my favorite authors. Honoring both the spirit of the Samurai and the many other wonders found in ancient Japan, still honored by the modern.

Samurais, Ronins, princesses, magical creatures and abilities. A hero with a destiny struggling to find his place in a world full of conflict and still holds true to his values.....what's not to love!!?

The fantastic adventure that Travis Heerman creates truly inspires you to think about destiny and what defines us as individuals. This book is a great ending to an awesome trilogy.

Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

The events and settings Travis Heerman discribes in this book gives you enough imagery to help you imagine this world while allowing you to paint the pictures of this world and its characters to fit your own minds ideas and preferences.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

The narrator was truly prefound, articulate and moving. Which allowed me to experience the highs and lows these characters go through. You could tell he also was enjoying this book.

Do you have any additional comments?

I love this series. I was fortunate enough to find the first preformed version of book 1, Sword of the Ronin, in podcast form and since that day I have been hooked. This now completes my Ronin collection and I can't wait to see what other imaginative adventures this amazing author comes up with for us.
