The Lovereading4Kids comment
Packed with tension, pace and thrilling adventure set in 13th century Japan this is an epic in sweep and alive with memorable characters. Kimi and Hana are sisters and unlike other girls are able, like samurai to make themselves invisible. Since their father's death they have trodden the path of the warrior for they are being hunted by their father's killer. It's a path full of hardship, danger and possible death.
Here's a taster from the prologue to get you hooked:
I have become invisible.
I can move as silently as a ghost, Unseen by the human eye, And when I strike I strike fast.
But I would not draw my sword against you. Because to kill without reason, in cold blood, is against the samurai code. And I am a samurai.
Ah, I see you blink with surprise. A girl? you are thinking. Surely a girl cannot be a samurai?
But youo are wrong. My sister and I proved that girls can be samurai. Togerther we have honoured our father's memory by treading the path of the warrior...
Sisters of the Sword: The Warrior's Path by Maya Snow
Kai Provence, Japan. 1216. Hana and Kimi are delighted when their heroic uncle, Hidehira, arrives at their palace, along with his dashing army of Samurai soldiers.
They manage to escape - just - but are separated from their mother and youngest brother. Now the whole country is searching for them - and anyone who helps them will be put to death. The girls must disguise themselves and find somewhere to hide out.
And their solution is so daring - and so obvious - that it will either work brilliantly or end in their deaths. Betrayal, heroism and avenging their father's murder will hover at the edge of every thing the sisters do from now on...
