Hattori Hachi: The Revenge of the Praying Mantis

Publisher: Piccadilly Press

Review

Hattie Jackson is an ordinary 15 year old girl until her mother suddenly disappears under mysterious circumstances, causing her life to change forever. Secrets about her mother's life begin to unfold, and Hattie discovers her true destiny - she is the last in line to a ninjutsu dynasty nearly a thousand years old. With the help of her new friend Mad Dog, Hattie must fulfil her destiny and face the most evil of enemies, the Praying Mantis, if she is to rescue her mother - and stay alive.

With a strong heroine and some thrilling fight scenes, this exciting action novel will appeal to both boys and girls. Packed with tension, the first in the Hattori Hachi series is a pacy page-turner that will have readers on the edge of their seats.
