Which lustbadet me to the fact that Lustbader has major problems writing women. Your display name should be at least 2 characters long.

“THE NINJA” vs. “THE NINJA: The Movie”

Lists with This Book. Van Lustbader had a very involved plot that erc full of historical detail as well as explaining what the art of Kenjutsu entails. The book is divided into five parts, called “rings,” as an apparent homage to Miyamoto Musashi ‘s The Book of Five Rings.
