Badogor's Thoughts:

"Imperial Akatsurai, land of samurai and ninja."

Don't you believe the headline - there are no ninjas at all! Again there are some hard but important missions to complete for which you need most of the previous books. The weapons and objects you can get here are more advanced and powerful than in the other titles and you will find the other ones boring when you return. There are also some nice, hidden passages which are terrible (though likely) to fail, but rewarding to complete.

This title includes Akatsurai as well as the Dragon Island and the Jawbone Isles (latter are very difficult to get to).
