His father, the navigator of their now shipwrecked vessel, and the entire crew have been slaughtered by ninja pirates. Jack's last remaining possession is his father's rutter, an invaluable book of maps and notes on the world's unchart
When I first heard about this book, I was like, “WOW talk about a fantasy I’ve had. I so have to read this book!” It sure wasn’t a disappointment either. It’s not very often I find a book that I just can’t put down. Right from the start I was invested in the main character, Jack Fletcher. The whole story and how Jack behaved I could so relate to. So many times in YA novels you read something and go “yeah right! No 12 year old would react like that.” I never felt like that while reading this book...more
For anyone who has not read James Clavell's Shōgun you will enjoy this as an easy interesting read, but for those of you who have, this will be a poor lackluster copy that boarders on plagiarism!

You could say that it was a slight copy off some other stories - Star Wars, Harry Potter, Karate Kid - but to be honest I liked it anyway and didn't really mind any of those elements.
The main character was quite interesting, but my favourites were probably two of the side characters. Their character arcs were better and heaps more interesting ...more
This was obviously written for younger readers and the writing style seems like it will keep them gripped and entertained. I wasn't fond of some of the Japanese terminology, I like how this might increase their interest and knowledge of Japanese culture and persona ...more

And why not compare this book to Potter? it's got an orphaned protagonist (Jack Fletcher) in a foreign land, exotic locales, and a school setting full of beauty and danger, history and magic. it's also got an evil antagonist that killed Jack's father.
Another reason for the Potter comparison: Young Samurai is freakin' awesome! Poisoned shirukens ...more
