Book Review: The Emperor of Nihon-Ja

The Emperor of Nihon-Ja - John Flanagan

From Goodreads: The adventure continues in the tenth installment of the bestselling series. When Horace travels to the exotic land of Nihon- Ja, it isn't long before he finds himself pulled into a battle that is not his - but one he knows in his heart he must wage. A kingdom teeters on the edge of chaos when the Nihon-Ja emperor, a defender of the common man, is forcibly overthrown, and only Horace, Will, and his Araluen companions can restore the emperor to the throne. Victory lies in the hands of an inexperienced group of fighters, and it's anybody's guess who will make the journey home to Araluen.

What I Thought: Book 10 in the series and I am still enthralled. Simply cannot recommend this series highly enough to anyone with 9 -10 year olds who enjoy a good quality story line and excellent writing.
