what a terrific story teller, complex but not confusing. great plot and beautifully narrated with perfect pace. I loved it, even more than reading the book
I was waiting for this 3rd book in the series for months. It did not disappoint. Steve Bein tells a really engrossing story and writes both action and reflection very well. Memorable characters, fast pace and a great flow. I love this series and I'm glad Audible jumped on it and had the audiobook timed exactly with the release of the physical book. I can't wait to read more about Mariko and Daigoro.
Alison Hiroto is also the perfect narrator for this series. This book probably sees her at her best. She voices all the characters well, but her Mariko fits the character so well.
Only criticism is that the cover artist seems to have forgotten that Mariko doesn't have a complete right fore-finger as at the time of this book.

Would you listen to Disciple of the Wind again? Why?
Probably. He really cranked up the anticipation and suspense in this book. There were points where I literally could not stop listening.
What other book might you compare Disciple of the Wind to and why?
Lian Hearn. Similar historic settings and preternatural themes.
Have you listened to any of Allison Hiroto’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes as she had read the other Fated Blades books. Same quality performance. Thumbs up.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The historical scenes with Shichiryo and Okuma were particularly riveting, but Mariko for the first time held me in thrall as she pulled a John McLane hunting down a terrorist. Also her boss is a riot, "Frodo", HA! I would love to see another book that had more of him and Mariko's partner in it.
