Road-Trip Hop Missouri



Welcome to the Around North America Road Trip Hop sponsored by  www.ilikethesebooks.com & www.iceybooks.com


My state is Missouri and I have a great book to review and give away, Katana by Missouri resident Cole Gibson. Enter to win my review copy by filling out the rafflecopter form below. And don’t forget to check out the other hops in the tour, each state or country has a different date in July. Check the map below rafflecopter.


The Story- Rileigh Martin is just a normal girl living her life and spending the summer at a salon shampooing hair. Then, bang, she fights off two would be attackers using intense skills in the mall parking lot. She figures it must have been the adrenaline, but that doesn’t hold up when she starts hearing a voice in her head giving battle tips and warnings.

Things get worse as crazy ninja’s beginning following and attacking Rileigh. In steps Kim, a handsome martial arts instructor, who tells Rileigh that she’s harboring the spirit of a five-hundred-year-old-samurai warrior, and so is he, and by the way, they used to be lovers.

Let the fireworks and the action begin.


My thoughts- I liked it. The book is an easy read that is entertaining and intriguing. I liked unraveling the 
mystery of Rileigh and her 500 year old spirit. The struggle she goes through feels real as Rileigh fears losing herself and letting the spirit take over.

Kim is a fun character, and he leads a group of other reincarnated samurai’s that are fighting evil that is trying to take over the world. All in all, just fun action filled scenes and a hot romance.
