The Revenge of Praying Mantis by Jane Prowse
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
First i have to say that this is the first book that i read about ninjas and Japanese tradition.But The Revenge Of The Praying Mantis was a really good book.I liked it.
Something new and i enjoyed reading it.
There were some scenes that made me realize that reading about ninjas was not that bad,and i kept thinking about the movies i saw.So ,yeah,in a way i'm glad that i got the chance to read this book.
What i liked the most was the main character's-Hattie Jackson- attitude and the fact that she was so determined to learn the 5 Dans.Sometimes it's really amazing how the authors create a character -it doesn't matter if is a boy or girl- who know what they want and what they have to do to get that.Well,Hattie Jackson knew what she wanted and she did it.That what i liked about her-she wanted to fight and defeat the Praying Mantis.It wasn't easy,but she learned everything and in the end that's all that matters.
Hattie's family or i should say Hattie's mother has a secret that only a few people know about.Hattie's destiny is to become the Golden Child of Hattori's family,but there are people who want to stop that.
I liked reading about Hattie's ninja training,but it was funny when i read the scenes when Mad Dog struggled to do the same.
It was great reading about something that i always thought that i won't like.That's my mistake,but now i know to not do that again.The Revenge of Praying Mantis was a great story with awesome characters!
What i didn't like was when i thought that a character i liked a lot betrayed Hatti and i was dissapointed until i found out the truth.God,i should have thought that he won't betray her..Well,sometimes i don't even know what to believe.
Mad Dog was one of my favorite characters and i'm glad the there were a lot of scenes with him.
Sometimes i think that reading about something else that is not fantasy(supernatural,paranormal or all the other things) it's good.Now after i finished The Revenge Of Praying Mantis i keep thinking about how good it was and how i want to read the next one soon!Yes,i'm a excited.And,yes,thank you,Jane,for this awesome book!
