Junya’s grandfather is a billionaire who keeps the secret to his success hidden in a heavily guarded safe.

His mother is a martial artist who wields a razor-sharp katana—and seems to read his mind. 
And a mysterious girl in a Japanese school uniform can knock him over—literally—with just a look.

What do they know that he doesn’t?
Junya’s life takes a dangerous turn on his sixteenth birthday, when someone sets out to destroy not only the family’s business empire—the one that he’s set to inherit—but Junya himself. He’s fighting for his life, and doesn’t know who to trust. 

What has his family been keeping from him?

Junya’s journey takes him from the narrow streets of San Francisco to Japan, and through hidden portals to the top of the ancient Japanese Izumo Shinto shrine, to places where death and violence are a way of life. And in a mystical world he’s never imagined, he finds his true destiny.


My only issue here would be the explanations why female ninjas are called kunoichi. Ku means 9 in japanese. So I think it's erroneous to tell that a woman has 10 "ichi".

Well, putting this very minimal issue aside, this novel is full of intrigue, mystery and action.

Junya is a 16-year-old grandson of a billionaire, who, on the day before his birthday was awakened to the "powers" that he did not expect.

Suddenly becoming a target of a very influential enemy, he relies on his new-found acquaintance and abilities to fight for survival. Travelling to different places in search of his destiny, he rediscovers himself and the world as he had never seen.

It's important to establish the facts first which I think caused a few dragging parts.
Since this is the first book of the series, I think it's understandable that there were a lot of details here for the world-building of the story.

There were still a lot of unanswered questions by the end of the book but overall I would recommend this book to those who like stories that are action-packed with minimal romance (so far).
