Great book Great series

BPLNextBestKids Apr 11, 2012

In this, the fourth book of the Young Samurai series, Jack Fletcher is alone on the road trying to reach Nagasaki and a ship to take him home to England. Foreigners are no longer welcome in Japan and Jack is aware of the dangers he faces on the road – bandits, ninja and samurai who would gladly turn him in. When he runs into serious difficulty he finds help in a most unexpected place. The question is who should he trust. Another exciting adventure in this fast- paced series that is best read in sequence. Reviewed by BPL volunteer EE.
