Feudal Japan. Ninjas. Vampires. Cool.
Japan, 1565. Taro has been brought up as a fisherman’s son. He will become a ninja, a silent assassin trained in the arts of death.
He will face samurai, warriors as sharply honed as the blade at their side. He will battle warlords for the title of Shogun.
But he will live in darkness, for no Blood Ninja can face the light of day.
Blood Ninja is an original take on the vampire mythology, in a setting that is all-too overlooked in Western fiction, and with a pretty awesome premise. The novel is not perfect, but the strength of the premise and the different setting make is an intriguing and entertaining read, and a great vampire novel for younger readers.
