Only then, he tells them, will they be able to avenge their fallen brothers and retrieve the temple's secret scrolls.Fleeing the temple, the five young monks go their separate ways. Their task is a difficult one, as each boy is an orphan and knows nothing of his origins. Fu, a master of the tiger arts, doesn't even know where to start! Wounded and hungry, he stumbles through the forest until he hears a tiger roar in pain. Then instinct takes over...With a fresh, imaginative concept, newcomer Jeff Stone introduces the first volume of an epic adventure tale told through the voice of a boy learning to temper his own strength.

What the Critics Say

"Quite a page-turner." (School Library Journal)
"The slam-bang, pedal-to-the-metal adventure stands a good chance of luring kids away from video games; they will definitely line up for the forthcoming sequel." (Booklist)

Not interesting for adults

I'm an adult who enjoys many well written childrens books. As an adult, I found this way too juvenile. And, I found the narrators voice tiresome.

good tale, too bad...

This series has fantastic potential, unfortunately the author was not skilled enough to to tap into that deep pool of talent reserved for the few authors who can make magic from lesser tales.
It was flat, like like a bycicle tire or your favorite soda pop that's lost it's fizz. It should be given to a better author one who can add depth and soul... to make it live.
