The QTE based combat would hopefully be fun and cinematic, while not being too excessive wishful thinking maybe. Nicholas has become Shiro Ninja white ninja and is helpless at the events around him spinning out of his control. The lines are often completely blurred between what’s actually possible with martial arts, and what’s simply just Japanese ninja legend or Lustbader making up and honestly, even now, I really have no idea where the line would be drawn if you forced me to.

This is a great series for any that enjoy a story set in Japan. Oct 20, Rick Royster rated it it was amazing. He paints vivid and often beautiful word pictures, and uses “like” a lot, as in the rain fell like, he threw dollars onto to the taxi drivers’ seat like, the sky darkened like, her skin was like In this instalment we find that Lustabder engages the reader with some of the more arcane elements of the traditional lustbade arts.

But anyways, The Miko features some vann un-ninja-like mkio beyond the miko, it’s a bit different of a story than The Ninja, featuring quite a bit of corporate intrigue.


Needless to say things to not go at all to plan and soon he finds himself embroiled in a revenge plot, a secret Japanese government plot and even towards the end with a secret US intelligence agency against the KGB.

This is only the beginning of this exotic thriller, where Lustbader weaves an utterly compelling tale of the CIA, the KGB, the technological world of modern Japan, and the mystical and dangerous realms of Ninja warriors
