The Empire titles which began with the award winning  Under the Blood Red Sun Salisbury has once again crafted a fine novel based on an actual person about first generation Americans of Japanese descent and the clash of culture and national identity that World War II accentuated  The story will leave readers spellbound Kirkus Reviews StarredFast paced and compelling this title will be enjoyed by voracious and reluctant readers SLJThe history is fascinating and Zenji is a fictional hero readers will long remember The Horn Bo. A uick note this claims to be based on a true story when in fact the author asserts that he invented the characters the dialogue and many of the events It's certainly inspired by a true story but that just seems to be a bit misleading considering it's entirely fabricated excluding a couple major characters and historical events Sorry for my pedantryReading as fiction and not reinterpretation of factual events this novel loses little uality Forget historical accuracy this is just a plain engrossing book I've never liked WWII stories being not actually from Earth international wars confuse me slightly but this book stands out as the exception From the lower vantage point of a young Japanese American spy rather than a military commander the novel plays out with less strategic tedium and in my opinion with a much interesting plot Some decisions struck me as a little sudden and some decisions were uestionably supported but I suppose that's unavoidable in trying to sueeze so much action into such a small book It could have helped being a little longer though and slowing down so as not to gloss over major eventsSome of the dialogue from the Bamboo Rat himself struck me as a little unbelievable at the beginning but it smoothed itself out pretty uickly Would certainly recommend for anyone with a basic knowledge of WWII and an interest in actionadventureespionage novels

Even though the writing was very basic the story was very captivating Then at the end I found out it was a fictional account based on some real people After I learned that I was judgemental on the basic writing and liked the book less
