In this book Sisters of the Sword, Kimi's and Hana's power hungry Uncle kills their father because he believes he is truly the right Jito, though he is only a murderer. Their Uncle killed their brothers, but one of them survived, along with their mother. Kimi's and Hana's little brother Moriyasu, is the true heir for the place of Jito. Kimi and Hana have to save Moriyasu and their mother so that their power hungry Uncle will be killed and the true Jito will take his place. I would recommend this book to people who like adventurous stories. ( )

I really loved this book. I loved that it was light and easy but still really informative and creative. The plot is very unique, and Kimi and Hana are love-able characters. Their friendship with Tatsuya, another boy in training, is fun and sweet. I liked it because Kimi and Hana were so innocent, and the book was a nice change. I also really liked Master Goku's character. I thought he was wise and a nice addition to the book.

I am also a big sucker for historical fiction, so I may be a little biased! Nonetheless, the story was imaginative and cute - I will for sure pick up the sequels! ( )

This was a good book, I'll definitely be reading the next one. One thing that I wish the book had done better is to better develop the characters--the story was really interesting, but it didn't make me feel like I knew the two sisters, or their friends. I'm hoping the next one will do better in that respect, but I'm still curious to see what happens. ( )

A girl, trying to avenge her families death, runs away with her sister, trying to find the man who separated her family. This book is perfect for people who love action and fighting, spies, deceitfulness, and much, much more! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0061243876, Hardcover)

Kimi dreams of being a great samurai warrior, but she and her sister, Hana, are young ladies of feudal Japan, daughters of the Jito of the province. Her future seems clear: Girls do not become samurai.

Then, betrayal shatters the sisters' world. Their power-hungry uncle murders their father, and their mother and little brother mysteriously disappear. Determined to seek revenge and restore their honor, they disguise themselves as boys to train at a school for samurai. Kimi and Hana are thrown headlong into a life of warrior codes, sharp swords, and shadowy figures—as they work with fierce determination to avenge the brutal wrongs done to their family.

In a flash, life has swept them into a terrible adventure, more heart-pounding than Kimi and Hana ever could have imagined . . . and once it has been set in motion, nothing will ever be the same.
