  1. The Sage, the Swordsman, and the ScholarsI received a copy of this book from Pierre in exchange for an honest review Thank you Something DifferentThe thing that really had me hooked on this book and invested me in its out come was the setting SSS as I m going to call it, for the sake of my fingers is a work of really exciting fantasy that takes place in China during the reign of the Ming Dynasty The book follows multiple perspectives, that of the swordsman, Sun Xin, some academicians , and a sag [...]


  2. Well That went quick Here we go In my view, there are four main elements needed to have a successful novel 1st, and most importantly is a good plot, which this book mist certainly has It is complex, moves at a good pace and really keeps you turning or scrolling the pages This is the books strongest point 2nd, a book needs well thought out and interesting characters, here the book falls a little short The basis is there for the characters, their backgrounds are well thought out and their motives [...]



  3. Those who know me know that one of my favourite animes of all time is Rurouni Kenshin So when the author contacted me and offered me this book in exchange for review, I read the premise and accepted immediately The samurai, Sun Xin, most definitely reminds me of Kenshin Known to those watching dubbed versions of anime as Samurai X He doesn t serve anyone in particular, he s sort of a vigilante with legendary skills among the criminals but to his master he is still an errant student The one who l [...]


  4. I give this an easy 4.5 5 I saw this featured on a giveaway and since I didn t win, I was sure to purchase my own copy As someone with Chinese heritage and ancestry, this book was absolutely fantastic In mainstream fantasy, it is extremely rare to find books set in an Asian background, much less one that is set in late Medieval China so this was really refreshing Not many people know about Chinese history but man, this book is a great way to introduce fantasy readers to Chinese civilization I wa [...]

  6. This book is well thought out and has a pretty clever plot There s a wonderful blend of modern fantasy elements with the good ol fashioned Wuxia Kung Fu content I really enjoyed the addition of actual historical elements and characters The characters are well thought out though the dialogue for each of them could be a tad unique Good use of description, and detailed action sequences and big battles This would make a great movie or series Was really delighted to see Medieval China depicted in su [...]


  7. This book didn t grab me Perhaps it is aimed at a younger male audience with kung fu dreams of flight fight from tree tops The unedited grammar also gave me pause But I cannot fault the author for his imaginative vision of the Ming Dynasty and otherworldly evil His characters have range and there is plenty of action with just the right amount of Zen philosophy to introduce to adrenaline fueled readers.An advanced copy of this book was provided for an honest review.


  8. The action packed scenes, ethical dilemmas, relevant philosophical debates, and an out of the ordinary storyline, make for an engaging read, especially suitable for young adult readers OnlineBookClub
