Eye of the Ninja (Chronicles of the Ninja #1) by D. M. Marlowe.
Loved this book, seriously cannot wait for the next one.
In this book Mei was been running for four years, since her father was killed by some otherworldly wind creature. Now she meets Ken Sato, and finds there are many other yhat have been looking for her all these years. A village that her father came from before she was was born. She decides to trav r l with him and see what she can learn of fighting this creature that keeps hunting her.
This book is seeped in Japanese mythos and culture. The colors are vivid, the rhythm is fast and smooth, one page to the next. Just keeps you reading as Mei learns to trust others, learns more about her heritage of being born into a ninja clan. She finds two other good friends besides Ken, and another that she is not sure what to do with, he seems like friend, but then they find something something out about him and it brings everything into question. Can he prove himself?
This is a YA book that will entrance audiences of all ages and genres. You must pick up this first book by this new voice in fanasty fiction. Definately five star read.
