The QTE based combat would hopefully be fun and cinematic, while not being too excessive wishful thinking maybe.
‘The Ninja’ and ‘The Miko’ by Eric Van Lustbader
This Nicolas Linnear must face a dangerous foe that has a link to his past. Selected pages Table of Contents.
Lustbader’s ninjas are very spiritual and mystical, their fighting techniques are as much mental as they are physical. It probably would have been better if someone told me this was urban fantasy. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. But anyways, The Miko features some rather un-ninja-like antagonists beyond the miko, it’s a bit different of a story than The Ninja, featuring quite a bit of corporate intrigue.

A Novel The Testament Series. Explore the Home Gift Guide. Drawn into a luwtbader of corporate intrigue, international espionage, and hedonistic sex, Linnear will have to put revenge on hold if he is to leave Japan alive. A gripping action thriller set against the backdrop of the Cold War. Looking forward to White Ninja book 3 in the series.
This really isn’t as easy as it may seem, the game would play nothing like Ninja Gaiden: All the characters were very well-written and the plot fit neatly together.
Copyright Greg Noe. He is being pursued by a miko: His plot is convoluted. A very 80s story of modern, industrialized Japan still battling the ghosts of war, and somehow caught up in US-Soviet cold war intrigues, to boot.
If you can get past the anachronisms, its an intricate and complex story weaving together the past and the present, Eastern and Western cultures and some dynamic martial art sequences involving Ninjutsu, Aikido, Sumo and others. My problem with this is that it lacked the elements of suspense, thrill, and awe I felt reading on the first one.
Sadly my maybe impossibly kustbader expectations were not satisfied.
Using a fighting engine pulled from a game like Shenmue or any other beat ’em up would simplify things far too much. This sets in motion the thriller that is faced paced and set in both the U.
That said I’ve been reading this book for about six years so I really could put it down.

The conclusion is incredible and mind blowing, and really sets the high water mark for the series. Much of the Japanese bit of this book is Eastern philosophy fantasy.
I read The Ninja a while ago and didn’t enjoy it as my feelings for it were overshadowed by Linnear’s awful experience, but when I saw Miko for 50p in a charity shop at work I bought it – mistakingly confusing Maiko with Miko. A spouse that bears a striking resemble to Yukio. Filled with breathtaking action scenes, suspense, romance, and revenge, all blended together in a delicious cocktail that will satisfy even the connoisseur.
In the bustling city, Linnear finds far more to worry about than the intricacies of Japanese business.
