Jet Black and the Ninja WInd
Jet’s mother’s dying wish was to have Jet travel to Japan and protect some mysterious secret. When Jet arrives, her grandfather and her ten-year-old cousin are there to welcome her, but her grandfather dies soon after Jet’s arrival. After the initial shock has worn off, Jet and her cousin travel to Tokyo to visit their monk uncle. On the way, Jet realizes she is being followed by a cute and mysterious man who was sent to assassinate her but Jet has strong feelings for him and he seems to have the same feelings for her. Jet must take up the legacy of female ninjas that her mother has left to her if she is to save the people she loves and protect the mysterious treasure she knows nothing about.
Jet was an interesting character but their seemed to be random points of teenage angst that didn’t seem to fit with her character, and there were several other minor points that detracted from the overall story. My favorite parts were definitely when Jet was using Ninja skills, but these were too few.
