This particular story tells the tale of several people, all of which interact with Jin Juan, and how his trip to America took a turn that the main character didn’t see at all. It almost feels a little bit like a soap opera that is kind of centered on a single individual.
As Juan discovers himself while dealing with the new found spirit of the earth abilities, he discovers corruption in the very people trying to train him, and decides to fight back. This book was a volume of issues, and while they transition nicely from one to another, for me the story dragged on. I found it pleasing to read, but not my style of story.
The artwork for the cover, and various chapter pages, as well as the artwork for the interior of this volume are well done. The emotion and actions are indicated, even accented on the page. Making the reader at least understand what is going on with very little trouble. This style of artwork seems a little rough around the edges, but I think it aids to the story telling and conveying the correct feeling for what is needed.
I don’t usually talk about the text in my reviews but I wanted to point out the effort that went into this. This story covers many cutlers and languages, and I feel that the creators of this book did a wonderful job making sure everything was correct down to the tiniest detail whenever a language other than english was used, to include the meanings of some and where it comes from, listed in a footnote.
Overall the story is good and makes one think about the balance in their lives, and the consequences of not having balance. I myself am not sure I am going to continue this series, being that it is not my foray. But please if you’re into asian culture and or the martial arts please give this story a chance and see if it is right for you!
