Jimmu matures and is also taught by other samurai warriors, men steeped in honor and tradition. Their teachings soon conflict with Jimmu’s plan for revenge and cause him to realize that a true samurai warrior is as deft with his intellect, and his virtue, as he is with his sword.
Jimmu learns that his life has been built upon a lie and that he must reconstruct his mind, body and soul in such a way that his true warrior nature prevails over his warped, false concept of a warrior. His struggle to overcome his faulty operant conditioning, and find a new family in the process, proves bloody and almost fatal.
This is a book about principle, loyalty, and the constant war within to ‘do the right thing,’ in particular when the right thing is nebulous and unknown. Take fate and destiny in hand and rely on intuition to guide you down the correct path - that is the way of the warrior.
