Descripción de editorial
Gunfire Samurai is a success story for a small press; thousands of downloads from new readers is like a million. Book #2 is complete (getting a 2nd edit]) and will be available between Jan-March 2018. Some new updates were made to book #1 as well by a new editor.
AN EPIC fantastic serial filled with dazzling twists and turns, deception, treachery, hidden truths, spies, with pulse-pumping danger peppered throughout, leading to a magnificently twisted ending.
The Mikasa Yamakazi Chronicles gets more harrowing with each novel. You'll quickly fall into a savage odyssey in the world of fast-paced fantasy, untested myths and tall tales that is Gunfire Samurai. Think of a high-octane version of The Odyssey. If you love those kinds of tales, you should love Gunfire Samurai, too.
This story has an alternate historical fantasy arc. Most aspects of life are re-imagined; from religion, customs, and government. Nothing is as it should be; a blend of thriller and action/adventure, sword & sorcery - filled with awkward creatures you've never heard of before.
THE MISSION: The Imperial High Council has dispatched a special agent who reports directly to them and the Emperor. An employee of the OCI, Mikasa Yamakazi travels north to rescue a young farm boy and bring him home. And this is where Yamakazi, a battle-tested Samurai, falls into a new world of unknowns that will test his sanity, honor, loyalty, commitment to the Bushido Code and his courage.
