Thought this was right up there with Clavell's Shogun. Very enjoyable fictional history.
I had no idea the Mongul Empire was so vast and much more civilized than the histroy I had learned protrayed the Monguls.
I would definitely recommend this book for anyone interested in a different perspective on Asian culture and history.
Overall, a good book and very good storyline. The narrators did a good job of bringing the characters to life. The story was just a little predictable in places, especially toward the end.
I still enjoyed the book and will look for other works by Peter Clines.
Tolkien, McCafferey, Paolini with a whole new twist. There were times I didn't want to get out of the car because I would have to stop listening. Made my hour plus (each way) much easier.
Very enjoyable listening, great fictional history with a bit of fact and realism about the Japanese Samurai culture.
