    4. Moonshadow Rise of the Ninja and Moonshadow The Nightmare Ninja are the first two installments in a series of children s books by Simon Higgins about, well, ninjas The first book is mostly entertaining if a bit slight, but the second, unfortunately, is disappointing due to an overreliance on fight scenes While the Moonshadow series has potential, it took a step backward in book two.Moonshadow is the title character, a young member of the Grey Light Order of ninjas In Rise of the Ninja, we meet h [...]

    6. I think that the wording was never misplaced on me It kept me hooked in from start to finish I m glad i ve finally got the change to have read such an amazing work of writing If the star rating went up to 10, would ve rated it 10 10 Moonshadow The Wrath of Silver Wolf

    7. I liked the story line and all the information, but the anachronisms and stilted, cliched writing really got to me It s not that hard to substitute the word guy for something time appropriate, and it would do A LOT for the story The characters also are a bit juvenile the anger piece seems a bit overplayed, especially as a plot device.

    8. With a blurb from john Flanagan I had high hopes for this book about an unlikely pair of ninjas set a secret mission together What I got was an ok story line with solid but not great writing I enjoyed the bad guys and the blending of physical and mental skills My favorite part was actually the flipping of pages to create a ninja throwing a shrunken

    9. I think that this book is even better than the first The characters are great, and I think that they are better than they were in the first book I like the feel of the story, and I also just like this series.

    10. Fast paced book within the stelth, secrets to be reveald diffrent tequiniques arise from this book, but in stealth

    11. This book was a great book just like the first one a followed on really well for what in the the first book.
