Silent Moon Book Review

Book Review: “Silent Moon – The Story of a Sword”

by Shihan Dana Abbott

Silent Moon – The Story of a Sword is a terrific read for all. From page one, I was ingeniously thrown into chaos and conflict: hand to hand combat, samurai swords, and machine guns cutting down soldiers on the beaches of Okinawa during World War Two. Then, within a few sentences, I find myself going back into Japan’s history before firearms were common and the samurai sword prevailed. I was intrigued when the story began to revolve around one particular samurai sword named Silent Moon, created 500 years prior, and discovering all the people involved over the centuries that came into contact with it. Some considered the sword a work of art, others, a prized possession, others, an heirloom, while many took it as a mere trophy of war. Placed on a nobleman’s wall in a castle or boxed and hidden away in an attic, each person respected it differently but all ended up being tainted by its dark influence. 

Silent Moon…whose hands will you fall into next?”
