This is the first in a 5-book series that is set in a fantasy version of ancient Japan. The main character is from a ninjaish tribe, and he's adopted by a lord for political intriguey reasons.

It doesn't really break any new ground (especially after all the RPGs I've played where orphaned boys grow up to have important destinies), but it was a quick and fun read. It feels like a stand-alone book (no cliffhanger), but I'm looking forward to seeing where the next few books take the characters.
