Lost in the mists of Mount Fuji. But no one can escape destiny.
The year is 1596 when samurai warlords fight for control of the Imperial throne. Tarō does not want to be a samurai-like his father, but fate takes a hand when a witch enchants the boy. Gaining supernatural powers, and befriending the magical forest animals of Mount Fuji, Tarō saves a powerful warlord’s life and discovers his destiny—as he hurtles headlong into the total war for ultimate control of Japan.
Born in Memphis, Tennessee, and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Blue Spruell lived and worked in Japan for several years before returning to Atlanta. A trial lawyer and certified mediator, he runs his own firm, The Outlaw Firm, specializing in family law and civil litigation. An internationally recognized black belt instructor, he also owns Peachtree Aikikai, a dōjo for Japanese martial arts.
This is a re-imagined tale which mixes myth, history, folklore and fantasy into a very interesting little cocktail.
Definitely a must for anyone interested in folklore and myth as it’s always interesting to read of tales of legend from another land, especially when they’re re-imagined.
A great tale of Japanese war lords and the hierarchy within the system.
An enjoyable tale, well worth a read for pure escapism.
