      If you love the martial art and Eastern spirituality, this is a great read If not, and you are coming for the murder mystery, I m not so sure It gets a 4 because I do love the Eastern aspect.Alon

      A murder mystery, what I like about it is that the story takes us inside the martial arts community Burke is a scholar of Asian culture and a black belt, a character I find very engaging He gets involved by his brother, a New York cop, in a case involving the murder of a Japanese businessman On a personal note, I dipped my toe into martial arts waters years ago when I took up the practice of aikido It was interesting to me but I was unable to make the time commitment required to make progress Bu [...]

      I have been on a Martial Arts Fiction kick, of late, and picked up Sensei a few months ago and have been looking forward to the Deshi ever since.The book did not disappoint.The character building was great and I especially enjoyed the struggle between student and teacher and the insight into that relationship.I would like the fight scenes to be a bit descriptive, but understand sometimes why they are not I enjoy Burke a lot and definitely relate to him in a lot of ways if only I had his techniq [...]

      Enjoyable second part to the seriesWith an interest in martial arts when younger And an interest in Japanese culture and history, these are enjoyable books The author has obviously trained himself and has that insight, but also shares little titbit s of knowledge which are interesting There are lots of little things to like in the book I m looking forward to reading the next one although we will have to suspend reality, how many times can lightening strike, 3 in the series apparently

      Cutting spiritual insight infuses martial arts thrillerSteeped in Eastern philosophy, rich with language that evokes the sweat and intensity of a Japanese dojo, and peppered with gritty cop talk and wry humor, John Donohue s Deshi smoothly folds mysticism into this top notch action thriller.Spiritual metaphysical content High The villain is a martial arts sensei who teaches a potent New Age blend of Tibetan mysticism and the lethal heritage of the samurai Connor Burke, master of the Japanese swo [...]

    6. Temple Dog says:

      This was a fun read The plot development although sketchy at best, had provided greater depth and intrigue that its predecessor, Sensei.I loved the center characters, Connor, his Sensei, Yamashita Mickey, and Art The continuity from Sensei provided an engaging read and I look forward to reading the remainder of the Connor Burke and Yamashita Sensei series You do not have to read Sensei to flow the plot it merely adds an insider element.I would recommend this book to anyone who is curious about J [...]

    7. Diane says:

      This author blends the philosophy and the day to day training of martial artists and a mystery involving the history and politics of China and Tibet.It s a fascinating glimpse into the lives of both the sensei and the deshi as they train for hours every day, both mentally and physically The demands and difficulties of the role of sensei are introduced in this book.An excellent read for anyone intertested in the martial arts or Buddhism.

    8. Bryan457 says:

      Kendo student Connor Burke is drawn into a perilous situation by his sensei, Yamashita, that ends up pitting them against a mysterious martial arts sensei named Kita Takanobu.Yamashita is continuing to push Connor from being just a kendo student who is very unsure of himself and his abilities, to being a warrior.

    9. Drew says:

      A lot of reviewers claim this isn t as good as Donohue s first book in the Connor Burke series, but I disagree This one is just as action packed Burke is enlisted by his brother to go undercover at a martial arts retreat Another book that shows traditional martial arts are boring.

    10. Ryan says:

      Suspense from the very beginning I cldnt put this book away once I started I NEED to get all the books in this series IF u think tht this is only about karate and that s it, your wrong GREAT storyline and I highly recommend this to everyone.

    11. Randy Daugherty says:

      A student of kenjustsu Connor Burke is a at once home in tradition and its relationship to the new This was the second book featureing Connor Burke.Just a nice relaxing , get lost type book.

    12. Jon Binford says:

      as true to life as these things can get a great series.

    13. Lizz Randall says:

      I listened to it on a CD Really enjoyed the Asian pronunciations and the involvement of meditation and martial arts woven into the story.

    14. Roger Perales says:

      ok bookter a long day at work, it s something quick to read where I don t have to think too much.

    15. Paul Bork says:

      Good thriller The protagonist is an experienced martial artist, but this is about issues than slam bang Good book

    16. John says:

      Not as compelling as Sensei, but I like the parts dealing with Connor Burke s family.
