Martial arts, romance, mystics, and throw in the Japanese yakuza for good measure and you have another Lustbader (author of the Bourne series) smash hit. Nicholas Linnear came before Jason Bourne. If you liked the Bourne books, you'll love the Linnear series.Mor
A book for flight travelers reads floantly about ninjas and friend ship.Jeffrey C.

Worth reading as the sequel to The Ninja, however some of the sub-plots were tedious. Questionable physiological feats by the characters also lowered the score compared to The Ninja where these skills were perhaps more believable. Valuable source of information on Asian culture however, and definitely fills many gaps in my knowledge in an enjoyable manner.J-Man
Ovu kršinu od knjige sam napustio nekih 60 strana pred kraj, potpuno nezainteresovan za rasplet. Čitanje mi je bilo jako naporno, pre svega zbog centralnog zapleta koji je nakaradan čak i za palp pojmove, kao i zbog tretmana glavnog ženskog lika koji je čak i jednom seksisti i šovinisti kao što sam ja bio degutantan. Izdanje je Dečje Novine Gornji Milanovac, kao i prva knjiga u serijalu, prevod Valerija Por. Opet imamo Kjušia umesto Kjušu a naučio sam i jednu novu reč: podgrlac.James Neal
Is it just my love for Oriental philosophy that makes me love this author's works? Maybe, but that doesn't cheapen Lustbader's talent for digging into the psyche of his characters and making them live and breathe as your reading.Benjo
Good read.Vicki Beyer
A very 80s story of modern, industrialized Japan still battling the ghosts of war, and somehow caught up in US-Soviet cold war intrigues, to boot. The author engaged in name-dropping and placename-dropping, but failed to grasp the Japanese spirit that he purported to be using as the crux of his tale.Enrique Peña

Named my dog after this bookAlex
Frankly I am a bit disappointed with this book. "The Ninja", the first Nocholas Linnear book, is one of my favourite books, so when I found out that there are more books featuring Nicholas I was really looking forward to devouring them. Sadly my (maybe impossibly high) expectations were not satisfied. Dont get me wrong. "The Miko" is still a good book with fine suspense, some interesting martial arts scenes, very intense erotic and also provides a nice insight in japanese culture and phsychology (as far as I, being a gaijin, can judge this). I enjoyed reading the book a hope that the next one, "White Ninja" will be even more interesting.Octavio Ramon
Good. However. it may not be appreciated as much by people not into the Asian martial arts.Sebastian Cosgrove
Couldn't get into it.Meichan
it's a quite old book, and judging by its thickness and small fonts one may not be willing to read at all, but then again, once u've started, u'd be absorbed!! with a fluent narration, van Lustbader managed to tell us worlds apart: the ancient Eastern minds and the Western minds. each character is very strong, the plot is rationable and easily understandable for both eastern and western minds of those who read it^^-meicHan-Robert Nacke
