I am a big fan of ninjas in general. I mean, the dudes can pop out of shadows and twist you into any number fatal positions or just stick a sharp object into you and you never see it coming.

Unfortunately, most of the ninjas out there on television and movies are mostly a bunch of Star Trek red shirts in black formal wear. Their sole purpose in life is to be knocked down by Daredevil, Wolverine, Bruce Lee or - god help us - the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

I know that you could argue that they we
I've had this one on my Kindle for a while now...I think I got it as a free giveaway at one point without really knowing anything about the plot. So when I was looking for a literary quickie, I picked up this novella not even realizing that I was in for such a treat.

As I started the book, I said to myself "Oh cool! Ninjas in Feudal Japan!"So I thought this would be historical fiction, peppered with Japanese folklore. Then, all of a sudden, "Beam Me Up Scotty" and we have members of the feudal Ja

This is a fantastic short novel, that provides a fun and unique backdrop for the excellent combat writing skills that Blackmore has so finely developed. While the book is a bit short on developing the aliens, ultimately the only thing that is really important is that a badass ninja is in space, fighting aliens.
Keith C Blackmore is my new author, read his other books in the Mountain Man series and loved them so I thought I would give this one a crack, again in the Kindle format, strange twist on the extraterrestrial theme combined with feudal Japan and the Ninja, but thoroughly enjoyed it.
A quick little almost-novella, this can be read in one or two sittings. It's the story of a ninja assassin who's been abducted by aliens, gets free, and kills them all. Kind of like "Alien" in reverse. A quick, fun read.
Brilliant short story. Unique idea that had the chance to either go really wrong or really right. The excellent tone and pace, the characters made it all work, and created a gem.
Well worth a read.
