No one knows if she has died, been killed or run away. The local people act very afraid and Jack is determined to discover the truth.

From Publishers WeeklyStarred. Debut author Bradford comes out swinging in this fast-paced adventure set in medieval Japan, the first in the projected Young Samurai trilogy.

Twelve-year-old Jack Fletcher has gained a reputation aboard a British merchant vessel as an agile rigging monkey. But after Japanese ninja murder the entire crew, including his father, Jack is left alone and injured to cope with strange customs and indecipherable language.

When he shows his fortitude and cleverness, however, a powerful samurai adopts him and sends him to learn the ways of Japan's warrior class.

Jack's story alone makes for a page-turner, but coupling it with intriguing bits of Japanese history and culture, Bradford produces an adventure novel to rank among the genre's best.

The intricate and authentic descriptions of martial arts contests will hold readers spellbound.

The action comes fast, and Bradford writes with the authority of a black beltwhich he happens to beand a genuine respect for the subject.

The Young Samurai

The minutiae of Jacks samurai training are conveyed with clarity and plenty of bravura, and while the central conflicts in Jacks pathtend to beshallow and fairly telegraphed, the clashes they lead intoare deeper and more satisfying. Employing a wide range of Japanese terms will have the dual effect of drawing readers intrigued by Japanese culture into the story, while dispelling the interest of those less enthusiastic. But its hard to fault an author for authenticity, and this first historical adventure in what promises to be a series shows definite promise.Chasing the Prophecy.
