Publisher's Summary

In the early 23rd century, one of very few ways to rise above your caste is to become a player in the extreme martial-arts game known as the Musashi Flex. Lazlo Mourn, a battle-scarred veteran, is ready to hang up his blades when his moves suddenly evolve toward a form of fighting unlike any the galaxy has seen. Journalist Cayne Sola wants the big story on the games, and not even the fiercest warrior will stop her. Billionaire Ellis Mtumbo Shaw has everything except combat fame, but an untested drug puts that within his reach. Their fates will entwine - and be decided - in the bloody arena of the Flex.


What the Critics Say

"Perry excels at hard-boiled writing, flashing dialogue, and stripped-down action." (Oregonian)

Great fun, well worth listening

As much Martial Arts Adventure as Science Fiction, well narated and presented. Light, fast, entertaining, and a great way to spend a few hours.

An action packed novel.

What made the experience of listening to The Musashi Flex the most enjoyable?

I enjoy Steve Perry's novels. This is an action packed read. One interesting thing is this novel is the basis of several of his other novels within the same universe. They aren't exactly a series, just various one shot novels that are connected by an overarching story arch. My only regret is that the author started making more money doing licensed books such as aliens and really stopped coming up with his own material.

What did you like best about this story?

Lots of action and a good overall plot.

Did Joe Barrett do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

He did a so-so job of differentiating characters. He is passable but doesn't have a great range.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really, this is a fun quick read.

Any additional comments?

A great book. The narrarator is average, but doesn't ruin the story. I''d advise taking a look as Steve Perry is a good author who does great action series. It isn't on audio but everyone should read his novel "The Man Who Never Missed". Awsome stuff!
