I started martial arts at 8 years old. I now have a black belt in taijutsu, the secret fighting art of the ninja. This was my inspiration for the Young Samurai series.
Most heroes have special powers. Jack Fletcher only has himself to rely on.
Shipwrecked and his father murdered by ninja, Jack Fletcher is rescued by the legendary swordmaster Masamoto Takeshi and taken to his samurai school in Kyoto, Japan. Hunted by the ninja Dragon Eye, Jack's only hope is to become a samurai warrior. And so his training begins . . .
THE WAY OF THE SWORD is the second installment of the Young Samurai action-adventure series set in the 17th century. With the help of a beautiful Japanese girl called Akiko, Jack must now conquer the Circle of Three, an ancient ritual that tests a samurai's courage, skill and spirit to the limit!
