Bright Eyes: A Kunoichi Tale
by David Kudler
Bright Eyes: A Kunoichi Tale Book 2 of 2: Seasons of the Sword by David Kudler Can one girl stop a killer? The future of Japan hangs in the balance, and it's up to a girl who likes to climb to save the day.
Two armies have descended on the Full Moon, and the war that has torn Japan apart for over a century threatens to destroy Lady Chiyome's school for young shrine maidens (and assassins). In this thrilling sequel to Risuko: A Kunoichi Tale, Risuko must face warlords, samurai, angry cooks, a monster in the hills, the truth about her father, a spy among the kunoichi... And a murderer. Someone kills a Takeda lieutenant, staging it to look like suicide. Can Risuko figure out who would do such thing? And can she keep it from happening again?
An exciting and imaginative story that continues to follow the main character, Kano Murasaki, called Risuko (Squirrel) in sixteenth-century Japan. This is an entertaining coming of age tale with some lovable characters that you can’t help but root for and invest your time cheering them on. The world building is rich and thoroughly engrossing with such descriptive detail that you can just “see” everything so clearly. I really enjoyed this book and Mr. Kudler’s writing style. I recommend this series whole heartedly.
It was my pleasure to receive a free advance review copy of this book but that does not in any way affect my opinions in this review of this entertaining story. #teen #youngadult #asianfiction #comingofage #action #adventure #mystery
