-ninjas and samurai warriors are fascinating
-i'm interested in sumo wrestlers too
Description from publisher's site (read a chapter excerpt at here):
A sword hilt was sticking out of his stomach, like a grotesque growth. Taro stared down at it. Blood was soaking through his cloak, and dripping down his trousers to pool in the crevices of his toes.
"What–," he began.
And then the pain hit.
He doubled over, gasping, unable to breathe, feeling the burning metal that had pierced his organs and – he knew without checking – burst out through his back. At that moment his knees gave way, and it struck him with a horror that crawled on his skin that his spine might have been severed.
But I can't just die, he thought. I was going to be a samurai . . .
on my want list ;-D
