In this second book of the Merlin and Martha series, we travel to Japan and meet Sensei, expert in the Way of the Warrior.

Can she embrace the martial arts and learn how to fight fast enough to help stop this demonic evil before it’s too late? In The Way of the Warrior Martha must pull from the depth of her soul and stand with Sensei and Merlin as they face a demon of mythical proportions!
Biografía del autor
Tammy Young Coté is a children's author and librarian in Connecticut, mom to three children and pet sitter for furry friends. Aside from reading and writing, she likes to sing and dance. She and her husband are cantors at their church and both sing in the choir. Tammy and her mom have been dancing with the same group of women -- "Dancing Die-Hards" -- for the last twenty years. Look for music and dance to creep into her stories here and there, not to mention an adorable pet or two!

In this beautifully crafted tale, the unique and captivating characters come to life, developing as clear personalities and reaching out of the pages of fiction to touch the young adult reader. The story is woven against the exotic background of a foreign land and the intricacies of the plot progression are carefully tended, interspersed with those conflicts, internal and external, which hold true to form. The whole book is well organized, each scene and action adding another paving brick, building towards the ultimate climax. With the brushstrokes of an artist, the author has carefully created a world of adventure and intrigue while never losing touch with the basic feelings and trials teenagers face every day. The result is “the best book written for teens this year”, an engaging flight that takes the reader on an inspirational journey with unforgettable characters and leaves them in a better place. That, in essence is what makes a great book GREAT!
In this second novel in the Merlin & Martha series, author Tammy Young Cote captures the anxious state of a young girl with a lot of balls in the air. John’s her first boyfriend. Her mother gets emotional. Merlin, her mentor, can defy gravity. To top it all off, God has called her to help in His battle against evil.
High stakes and mighty foes make good drama.
In “The Way of the Warrior” Martha travels to Japan to study self defense with a martial artist of the spirit. This special sensei teaches her that a young girl doesn’t have to be weak or defenseless. Martha learns to sharpen her senses and wield her spiritual weapons. She also learns that even if he’s from another culture, she is her brother’s keeper.
I enjoyed Martha’s vulnerability as she faces social, personal and spiritual difficulties. I liked the characters. Young Coty also captures the events in clear and concise prose. I could easily visualize what was happening. I would’ve liked more of a threat in the middle of the book, and less of a tourist’s take on Japan, but that’s a quibble. It’s all well written and engaging. The action flowed smoothly to an explosive climax.
Martha and her mother are Catholics, but any Christian teen will enjoy the learning curve this young girl is following. She's a plucky kid in a fight with some very powerful enemies. She’s learning that God has endowed her with skills of her own, and sent her some cool friends to help in the fight against evil.
I also like the freedom Tamara gives me to think outside the box. Tamara's characters
live, have depth and personality and seem real....a treat for the hungry imagination.
