Vampire Samurai: My Sword and Fangs | [Vianka Van Bokkem]

Vampire Samurai: My Sword and Fangs

My father's name is Naoko Kasai. He is a handsome, brave, wealthy Samurai from the island of Tochigi, Japan. When he married my mother they wanted to have children right away. My father wanted the baby to be a boy to teach him how to be a Samurai, and fight side by side. Destiny intervened and a girl was born. My mother named me "Aiko". A few days before I turned 11 years old, my father asked me what I wanted for my birthday. Without hesitation I told him that I wanted a sword. I earned my "Samurai" status when I was 18.

Publisher's Summary

My father's name is Naoko Kasai. He is a handsome, brave, wealthy Samurai from the island of Tochigi, Japan.

When he married my mother they wanted to have children right away. My father wanted the baby to be a boy to teach him how to be a Samurai, and fight side by side. Destiny intervened and a girl was born. My mother named me "Aiko".

A few days before I turned 11 years old, my father asked me what I wanted for my birthday. Without hesitation I told him that I wanted a sword.

I earned my "Samurai" status when I was 18. Unfortunately, something terrible happened to me and my cousin Kiku when we went on vacation to Romania. Mongols and Turks invaded Japan and I am going to fight them to the death.

And a mysterious good-looking vampire named Xander Van Buren is going to try to win my love...if Akemi Naito, my fiancee, allows it.

    I was a 'readaholic' for most of my life. I started crochet and other hobbies. That took away from my reading time. I discovered audio books at the library. That set me off. now, that I am older my eyes make it too difficult to read. So I now am a very diligent audio book listener!

    "A little too simple"

    I have not viewed this authors works before. I had no expectations about what I was going to hear. I expected a little explanation about Samurai life, something happens and changed to vampire. Then learning to live or not with the situation. Well this is like a teen short story. Girl tells father she wants to be a Samurai. She becomes one. Girl gets invited to go with cousins to Romania (really). One cousin is killed after the two girls get attacked by vampires. This is after they accept an invitation in a strange country from strangers. Our Samurai is found out later to have been saved by a mysterious stranger. The young Samurai is in reality a blood thirsty vampire. There is little action going on. This story is very simple. It is 100% predictable, there are no surprises. The narrator Ginny You does a fair job with reading this story. She makes it more interesting. My main complaint is her voice is a little too young for the story.
