Kazuchiyo is a historical fantasy fiction novel written about a samurai named The Red Dragon and his son, Kazuchiyo. He loses his son to his rivals and Kazuchiyo is raised by the enemy. He learns the arts of war in an unfamiliar land and plans for the day that he can return home.
With the help of his friends, Kazuchiyo begins his mission; however, faces many obstacles in order to achieve the ending result. Sacrifices have to be made, and that’s when the book takes an interesting turn.
Since this was the first book of its series, I imagined it would contain a substantial amount of foundation to carry on over. However, the author managed to tie every loose end, and that made me wonder if the sequel will also act as a stand-alone novel.
The literature was filled with fantasy and historical references. It was filled with romance, action and adventure. The pace was steady, and everything about the story was superbly executed.
I look forward to reading more from this author and would recommend it to people who like to read Japanese fiction and Asian martial art stories.
