-David is an engaging character whom readers will easily identify with as he struggles to overcome his own fears and doubts to find his inner strength. Although the book culminates in David saving a damsel in distress, Martin creates a strong female counterpart to David in the character of a female warrior. An imaginative take on the triumph of the underdog.- --Booklist

-When a typical American boy spends a year in Japan on an exchange program, he's expected to have his mind opened to new experiences. In Samurai Awakening, young David Matthews achieves that and more--for a price. A new entry in the young adult paranormal category, Benjamin Martin uses Japanese culture and history to build quite a compelling tale.- --McClatchy News Service

-Due to the author's firsthand experience as an American living in Japan, David's feelings of isolation as he attempts to adjust to new surroundings ring true, as do the details of school life. Dialogue printed in Japanese characters adds a pleasing note of authenticity, and the novel's rural setting will appeal to readers who seek to know Japan beyond Tokyo.- --School Library Journal

-Martin scrupulously details the elements of David's apprenticeship, and his familiarity with Japanese customs and myth lends verisimilitude [...] Martin's writing is richest when conveying David's initial disorientation as an outsider in a new environment.- --Publishers Weekly

Kurzbeschreibung

David Matthews is having a rough time. Being a teenager is bad enough, but when he picks up and moves to Japan for a year, with barely any knowledge of the language and none of the social behaviors of Japanese teenagers, things go from bad to worse.

Until one day, David attends a temple ceremony and finds himself possessed by a Japanese god.

Suddenly, he can understand and speak Japanese. He has unbelievable new powers, including the ability to shift into a tiger, and a powerful sword he can materialize at will from its sheath—his body. But nothing comes for free, and these changes bring David face-to-face with the most terrifying creatures of Japanese legend—vengeful okami, demonic oni and terrifying ghostly yurei.

Trained by his host family, famous sword-makers and the keepers of an ancient secret entrusted to their family by the first Emperor of Japan, David must fight desperately to save his host sister from a hoard of Japanese monsters. Evil has returned to Japan, and David must overcome his own insecurities if he is to save her and become a True Samurai—the protector of Japan.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fun AND educational? 13. Mai 2013
Von falx25 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
In the age of Twilight and its ilk, it's refreshing to see an author instill some actual education into what is otherwise an entertaining fantasy adventure. Mr. Martin's thinly-veiled autobiography describes in great personal details life in Japan. From the mythic (samurais and folkloric monsters) to the mundane (food and "badminton"), the book is laced with a rich vein of culture, but don't worry, your tween will not realize it between all the talks of adventures and epic sword fights. The book is well-paced, and while it occasionally spends a little too much time describing facets of Japanese life, this will serve to enrich the readers by placing them in the author's place as if they were going through these experiences for the first time.
Overall, a solid first entry for a first-time author. I will be looking forward to his sequels.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not my preferred genre, but I found the "look inside" intriguing. . . 2. April 2014
Von DanK - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
My daughter, Jennifer L. Kelly, wrote a book for the YA audience as an independent author. I read the "look inside" for this book and was intrigued although I'm a little older than YA. I feel it's important to "give and receive" when publishing independently.
Get this book. It's a great story and Mr. Martin wastes no time diving right into the good stuff. You will also appreciate his knowledge and obvious research regarding Japanese teen life and Japanese mystical history. I enjoyed this book and I'm 55. Teens will really enjoy it as Mr. Martin spends time on Japanese teens at school and play and defending the populace from mystical monsters!
I think you will find this book to be an easy, enjoyable read. I also see potential for a continuing series with these characters as they are just getting started.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Sloppy 19. Februar 2013
Von Isaac T. Tucker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The story was simple and straightforward with no surprises.

I was constantly being distracted by grammatical and typographical errors in the text.
There were even occasions where the characters had their names spelled incorrectly.
I was constantly questioning whether the book even had an editor.

I would assume the text was written for an audience still in High School with the intent of educating them on social mores in Japan.

With that said, I enjoyed the story - though I enjoy most stories.
So read it, if you will. Though be aware that you will not get that time back.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fun read!! 6. November 2012
Von Kumecowboy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Living in Japan and being able to relate to most of the cultural references was the best part for me. I usually read non-fiction, however it was a nice change of pace and I will definitely read the sequel (which I hear has already been given to the publishers). I also enjoy the authors homepage morethingsjapanese.com where he writes on a variety of topics relating to Japan and Japanese culture. Give it read. Highly recommended!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great fun read 24. Dezember 2012
Von gundamsnipe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Samurai Awakening is a great novel. Any teenager reading this book should really enjoy it. The only gripe I have with the novel is the chapter titles give away to much about the coming up chapter. I have never been a big fan of chapter titles. It starts out a little slow but then the actions just increases and the fun begins. I am looking forward to the next two books.
