    Description

    Akio Prince is one of the best in the world at a dying art.  

    He’s put a lifetime of martial arts training to work in the arena, dueling with pulsing resin blades and glowing carbon fiber for the masses. But winning championships is small consolation while his city is taken over by the Hachinin, ruthless criminals spreading corruption, violence, and debauchery across the east. 

    When the same syndicate that claimed the life of Akio’s master threatens the few friends he has left, he decides to make a stand. 

    After refusing to throw a fight at the behest of the city’s kingpin, Akio enters a dangerous game of hunter and hunted - a bloody revenge tour that will push him to his limits and put his martial skills to the ultimate test. 

    In the near-future Far East, where heroes are hard to find, Akio discovers that a little bad might do a world of good.

    thrilling!

    Great story and narration!

    A martial artist must fight in a televised tournament in order to pay back debts of his deceased adopted father. Told to take a dive by a mafia boss will he bow to pressure or fight with his all? The world will never be the same!

    Soundbooth does a fantastic job with the narration and bringing the story and characters to life!

    This was a fun one!

    I can't wait to find out what happens in the next book!

    Excellent story! Just not my cup of tea

    I thought the narration of this book was excellent. I love Soundbooth Theater and have often picked up books simply because someone from their crew was involved.
    This particular book is well written and is simply not up my alley so it took me a while to get through it. The characters were interesting and the narrators truly brought them to life, I'm sure anyone that is interested in an urban vigilante mob story with some sci-fi mixed in is going to love it.

    good narration, horrible story

    The narration was solid, maybe a few minor editing errors early on but that's all. The story is somewhat like batman, but with a childlike mindset. And MANY MANY plot holes. Also you tend to hate the MC, assuming he would later die, or take over as the bad guy but neither happened. maybe this author is new? Or just has a child's level of idealistic fantasy? Go ahead and check it out, you'll see.

    Pretty Good

    I love the story, the martial arts aspect, all of it. There is plenty of room for individual character growth and ALOT of room for the history of the world and how it became so much more different than the world we all live in. The only thing I don’t like (and am hoping is changed by next book) is there is just way too much introspection. Especially in the middle of a fight. I found myself skipping 30 seconds ahead to get on with it already. But overall, good enough to get another credit from me on the next book.

    Fun futuristic fighting tournament

    I need to establish that I am a sucker for fighting tournaments. So with that being said, I loved this book. The fighting was well explained and abundant throughout the book. The world was well described and created a cool setting where this can all transpire. The characters are diverse and interesting. The narration was expertly done and the fact that is is a full cast performance adds great value. The sound effects and music help with greater immersion in the book.

    SBT is phenomenal!

    SBT did a fantastic job with this book. I loved the work Gary did witht he MC, it was an easy listen hearing how the character play his way in and out of trouble with a smooth voice to keep things calm even during tense moments. if a voice could wear sunglasses, this is it! ( I'm saying that as the most common voice I heard in the book) The author could use some work giving more characterization to this cut and dry ( but not stale ) delivery of a modern samurai drama. For what it was the story was clean, didn't have too much extra, but it had a lot of unneeded filler in my opinion. Too much extra intrigue or filler to get to know the characters better. By no means is the book the author wrote bad, it just doesn't lend itself well to being anything other than a TV show script, but instead of reading it I much more preferred the delivery here by SBT, a must buy if you like SBT's works or anything by the author. Solid delivery on all accounts! I was given a code for this book, but I would have actually paid money/ a credit for it if I had been recommended, hands down, enjoyable. A better experience than a certain popular game with neon lights and futuristic samurai.
