Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic book. I've read every single choice of games book on the App Store, (except for that one about being an iron atom. I mean, what?) and this is most definitely the best one I've had the pleasure of "playing" coming in atop my former favorites, tin star and the heroes rise trilogy. This book delivered. I felt for the characters. I wanted to be there to comfort hatch, or lay a friendly hand on the ronin's shoulder when he was feeling overwhelmed. I enjoyed the dichotomy between the first book, which focused more on violence and swordplay, and this one, more attuned to the intellectual pursuits available in hyuga. Also, the last supper, Mona Lisa, and roof of the cistine chapel inclusions were much appreciated. I truly cannot wait until the third installment.
I liked the emphasis on the character interactions, the depth one can see play out without needing the action to carry the plot along. I can respect that. The feel for established characters was there, the conflict and tension rising from the start and middle were great... Then it just took a turn for the strange that outright derailed it. One minute it is clear cut, next minute it's referencing something akin to inception in absurd ways that I felt hurt the story.
I didn't enjoy the second half of the story due to how it went from character building, to questioning the characters roles in the story altogether, to a completely different story entirely that only referenced what was the original story.
I loved the first Samurai of Hyuuga book, and I've replayed it many times. This book just felt like it was dragging its feet halfway through, tripped, and crawled towards the end with parallels to fantasy island as its crutch. Maybe I grew too fond to the flow of the previous books plot, but this felt hollow by the finish.
Hear me out. Kind of different from book 1
I’ve never cared to write a review before but... the tone and writing is as good as the first. However it feels as if we are restricted to the choices we’ve made based on our stats. Now each choice isn’t clear in which your atunement is raised or lowered. It kind of bugged me as I wanted to diversify my character from book one, it was a bit frustrating having want to open up to my motley crew but feeling as if i wasnt supposed to. As character development is something every story should have.
Now i dont really agree with other criticisms when we move onto the island. I feel like it’s a welcome addition, there are supposed to be supernatural elements that tug and mislead your path as the oni of greed tried to do in the first.
I think if you really liked the first book definitely consider reading this one. I was only annoyed with the atunement stats, and that I had to take to google for a particular segment (one involving a japanese board game). This book is all about the aftermath after a storm with an exciting beginning and another storm brewing towards the end. Im hoping book 3 holds up considering the positive reviews.
Definite props to the author.
