If you are interested in fantasy novels, or fiction in general, this book is a must read. Buy it here on Amazon. What is so great about this book is that it is based on Bujinkan Gokui. However, the Gokui are not mentioned in relation to the Bujikan. So anyone interested in martial arts, particularly Japanese martial arts will enjoy this book. While it is not set in Japan, but instead in a fictional fantasy world with a great magic system, those interested in old warrior philosophy will love the book's codes and magic system. So, even if you practice a more modern system of martial arts like Karate, Kempo, Aikido, Kendo, Judo, Iaido, etc., or even non-Japanese martial arts like Taekwondo, Kungfu, or even Jiujitsu (BJJ), you will really enjoy the book and the story telling. It is neat to see how the author uses these philosophies (gokui) from the Bujinkan and creates a magic system and code of honor with them, and yet still manages to create an analog to the reader's daily life.
