Blood Ninja – Nick Lake


Ninja – dark, mysterious, deathly fast and only out at night – why then it should be no surprise that the Japanese Ninja of this series are also vampires.

Blood Ninja is set in a time gone by. Samurai rule Japan – but the game-playing of politics between the two main warlords, mean that the ninja are called on to assist both sides maintain power.

Very readable – first in a series.
