“Each page is headed with a philosophical teaching of a martial arts concept. The illustrations are colorful and correspond with the text.” —Library Media Connection
School Library Journal
“The panels are appealing to the eye, with crisp, energetic illustrations and vivid colors. A light, entertaining series for most graphic novel collections.” —School Library Journal
“Ryser’s style and pacing are polished and professional. The setting and architecture are generically Asian and merrily anachronistic.” —Publishers Weekly
