With no further ado here is Iroshi.
By Cary Osborne
Iroshi by Cary Osborne reads quickly and sets us out on a samurai adventure in space far in the future which is kind of a cool concept. Earth is still the central planet where the government is settled. Iroshi is a young adult who has been trained in the arts of 'samurai' or something similar to it.
Iroshi decides that she needs to get away from Earth after the death of her master. She needs to find her purpose in this universe and she is drawn to a distant desolate planet called Rune. This is where she finds the purpose she's been looking for.
While reading Iroshi it felt like I was reading two books in one. It's the first book in the trilogy and of course every new book needs character development but Cary Osborne didn't put enough energy into her main heroine. I didn't feel like I got to know her well enough.
As for the story it was entertaining but just like the characters needed more development. The book is only 216 pages long and the first half is spent introducing the characters and the setting. The rest is the climax of the story.
The story of Iroshi was not too bad, it was just that the pace was way too quick and not enough time spent on building up to the climax. I felt like, what's the point in reading this?
