Rising from the fragrant, soothing water, Hideo allowed the liquid to stream down his face. His long hair trailed down his well-muscled neck in a satisfying weighty mass.

Romance, politics, adventure, and honor. All of these and more are debated, represented, fought for, and accomplished in "Shogun Iemitsu". It weaves a tale of a culture accustomed to honor and swordsmanship being introduced to the world of the firearm. Add to that a character being secretly Christian and outwardly Buddhist for his own safety, and you have one of the most interesting novels which is not only exciting, but careful in detail and accuracy. All in all, an excellent read.
