about this item
When young Katana Kahanu displays a remarkable ability during her black belt test at her karate dojo, Master Osaka recommends that she attend an elite martial arts school called The Hall of the Dragon. There she will learn five different martial arts, as well as how to master the chi, or internal energy, of each art. Upon her arrival, she hears the story of Master Chow, the founder of the Hall of the Dragon, how he mastered all five arts, and was the last person to do so. His mentor was murdered and when he set out to avenge that death in 1868, he left behind the Scroll of the Five Masters, a sacred text that is supposed to contain the secret to immortality. Soon the school comes under attack by evil forces--Samurai searching for the Scroll. When Katana is joined at the Hall of the Dragon by her best friend from home, Chris, she learns that Master Osaka is missing. Can Katana find her teacher before he succumbs to the evil that haunts the Hall? Can she keep the Scroll out of the hands of the evil Samurai? Her ability and her safety will be tested in Book One of this thrilling new series.
The first book in an exciting new series for middle readers, featuring Katana, and orphaned girl who becomes a karate master.
