Enlightenment by Way of the SwordReal-life figure Miyamoto Musashi was the most celebrated samurai of all time. The quintessential warrior philosopher, Musashi authored A Book of Five Rings, a theoretical guide to military strategy still used today. But the path to enlightenment is an endless journey, and to get there through violent means—by way of the sword—makes mere survival an even greater challenge.

One with Heaven and EarthMusashi suffers a humiliating defeat against Inshun, the second-generation master of Hôzôin Temple. To prepare for a rematch, Musashi undertakes an intense spiritual and physical training regimen with a most unlikely teacher—Inshun's predecessor, the founder of the Hôzôin Spear Technique. To attain the focus necessary to take on the most technically proficient and deadliest fighter he has ever faced, Musashi will first have to confront his own deep-seated personal demons.

Duals, battles, bloodlust, fully developed characters and a wonderful plot make this a can't be missed series. If you like historically correct tales of real-life characters living in times when strength and being well trained in the "way of the sword" meant life or death, you will not want to miss this, or be able to put it down. The kind of book you want to never end. Takehiko Inoue is a master of ink and story, his pictures are superb and realistic. He is an award winning author in Japan and elsewhere with other series to his credit. I'm only familiar with Vagabond, but thank goodness for the VIZBIG versions because I can't put it down once I start a new book.
