Sisters of the Sword, Том 1. Maya Snow Kimi dreams of being a great samurai warrior, but she and her sister, Hana, are . Maya Snow. Kimi dreams of being a great samurai warrior, but she and her sister, Hana, are young ladies of ancient Japan, daughters of the Jito of the province. Her future seems clear: Girls do not become samurai. Then, a murderous betrayal shatters the sisters' world. Suddenly, Kimi and Hana are thrown headlong into a life of warrior codes, deadly swords, and dangerous enemies. One thing that I wish the book had done better is to better develop the characters-the story was really interesting, but it didn't make.

Sisters of the Sword. By (author) Maya Snow. As the palace burns around them and servants are put to the sword, Hana and Kimi have to fight for their very survival. They manage to escape - just - but are separated from their mother and youngest brother.

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. He is their father's right hand man, a guardian and protector who helps him govern the land on behalf of the Shogun. So when Hidehira and his army slaughter their father and elder brothers, the girls are stunned. As the palace burns around them and servants are put to the sword, Hana and Kimi have to fight for their very survival. 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...
Thundershaper
Feudal Japan, circa 1216. As teenage daughters of the local lord or jito, Kimi and Hano live lives of luxury tinged with frustration at being denied the opportunities to train to be samurai like their brothers. Still, their father being more enlightened than was usual, the girls have been taught to read, write, and defend themselves and their home in case of attack, but Kimi, the eldest and the narrator, in particular burns for much more, "I would rather spend my days fighting and studying the bushi code, like my father and brothers do."

She gets her wish in horrific fashion when she and Hana witness their uncle treacherously murder their father and two older brothers, plus all their family's samurai and servants, leaving only their mother and youngest brother missing and presumed alive. Managing to kill one of their uncle's samurai who was overconfidently tracking them alone but seeing their way to the local town blocked by more soldiers out looking for them, the sisters stumble upon the dojo of Master Goku, where their father and brothers trained to be samurai. Disguising themselves as boys, they gain admittance as servants with the promise of training if they do well, furthering them along the path towards their all consuming goal of avenging their father and brothers.

First of all, Maya Snow does a marvelous job of bringing this now alien but once quite real world to life. An expert on 13th Century Japanese history might find some nits to pick, but nothing struck me as wrong or out of place. I was particularly struck by how she brought the complex bushi codes of honor to life, to the extent that Kimi refuses a chance to take her revenge because to do so in that particular context would have been dishonorable.

In addition Ms. Snow avoids the feminist idiocy that tends to make these sorts of "girl power" novels unintentionally hilarious. The problem with having women physically beating up men in the real world is that women, being smaller, have less potential for muscle mass than men. Oh, a trained woman warrior could easily take out a legion of male couch potatoes, but against an equally trained male warrior, while she could very well be faster and smarter, she could almost never be stronger, and if the fight lasts long enough, brute force will prevail. Ms. Snow handles this by emphasizing that the most consistently successful warrior will be the one that can best analyze an opponent for weaknesses...

and exploit them before the opponent exploits hers, which a woman could do as well as a man, better perhaps if the man is deluded by unfounded assumptions of male superiority.

Defects? Hardly worth mentioning. A glossary of the Japanese words used in the text might have been nice, but Ms. Snow makes the meaning pretty clear from the context. In addition those squeamish about violence should be aware that there is a goodly amount herein, entirely appropriate IMHO, but be ye warned.

Some nasty twists at the end set up the sequels: Chasing the Secret and Journey Through Fire.

You should totally read this book and the whole series because you will get hooked into it and won't be able to pit the book down. The reason why I liked this book is because there was lots of action and you never knew what would happen next. The author did a great job describing things. When reading this book I was so shocked when I uncovered things that I would have never guessed in a million years would happen. If you love adventure and breathtaking things then you should totally read this book! But before this review is over I need to tell you one thing about this book. If you are the kind of person who is grossed out by blood do NOT read this book because especially this book, the first book in the series, there is lots and lots of blood. There are some very, very gruesome descriptions in this book. But besides that this book and its series is SO good!!!!!
