Waiting on Wednesday: Blood Ninja by Nick Lake

Jill over at Breaking the Spine started this and I believe that it's awesome" This blog post is to alert those that visit about "the" book that we cannot wait to get our hands on. I have decided to participate because I have a list that can go on forever and ever and it is interesting to see what else others are "waiting" for also.

This week my WoW choice is Blood Ninja by Nick Lake. The cover is spectacular beyond words and just enough information about the book is out to make me thirsty for more....


Hardcover: 288 pages
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing (December 1, 2009)
Language: English
Ages: 12 and up


In a secret underworld, ninjas and vampires are one and the same.

This is one of the articles that I have seen in regards to BLOOD NINJA from AP WATT.

BLOOD NINJA: THE DARK MIST OF NIGHTLake, Nick
Ninjas: silent, deadly and impossibly skilled in the art of combat. Peerless assassins and spies, they pose a terrifying threat to the Japanese nobility. Yet no-one has ever seen them by day…
For all ninjas are vampires. The source of their strength is also their greatest weakness - ghastly blood-sucking spirits, all but invincible in battle, they are vulnerable to one thing: sunlight.

THE DARK MIST OF NIGHT is the first of the Blood Ninja series. It will reveal the long-hidden secrets of ninja society and tell for the first time the astonishing tale of their first great leader – the man who was ninja, samurai and Shogun. It is the story of Taro, a boy from a simple fishing village who is rescued by a ninja when his father is murdered, and who finds himself dragged deep into a bitter conflict between the rival Lords ruling Japan.

What is the connection between Taro and Lord Tokugawa? What could an ancient curse put on the Emperor’s house by an angry spirit possibly have to do with a fisherman’s son? Where will Taro’s love for Lord Oda’s daughter Hana lead them both? What is the Buddha Ball, and why are men and gods alike willing to kill for it? And can a ninja and a peasant ever rule Japan?

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
