Picked this book up from the library because of the beautiful cover and the summary which made me think of Tamora Pierce's 'Song of the Lioness' series with girls dressed as boys learning to fight.
Sisters of the Sword was an incredibly fast read, full of action and, while somewhat predictable, still quite satisfying. The thing I loved most about this book was that it had two girls (sisters) in disguise together. They loved each other and when one was down, the other was there for her. I also liked that they weren't in the samurai school because they were defying their proscribed 'place' in society, but because everything they knew had been destroyed and their lives were in danger. My favourite thing about this story, though, was that though the girls were originally young noblewomen, they never once complained about having to take on the role of servants. They found ways to turn their work into further training and maintained that positive determination to one day avenge their family.
Truly a fantastic read. I can't wait to get my hands on the next two books!

It's really exciting. And Kimi's my age! Wow! I think I've just met a kindred spirit. Careful with the sword, though.
