[Well, there’s no getting around the fact that this update is several years behind schedule – full apology for my absence at the end of the review, since I’ve kept everyone waiting long enough.] When they were but a child, The Ronin was told that any seeking to master the sword had to be willing … Continue reading Samurai of Hyuga Book 4 Spoiler Free Review
So, following the recent reviews we put out for both book 2 and book 3 of the Samurai of Hyuga series, I thought it’d only be proper to follow up with our usual spoiler talks. Normally, we’d only do a spoiler talk for something that we’d fully and definitely completed, but seeing as the series … Continue reading Samurai of Hyuga book 1-3 spoiler talk
