Jessica Amanda Salmonson. Thousand Shrine Warrior.

Jessica Amanda Salmonson. Tomoe turns to religion to escape her past, but destiny is not through with her yet. The young girl crashes through the underbrush, desperate to escape the cackling soldiers at her back. After catching her in a tryst with a local farm boy, they intend to execute her for her sin. She runs for as long as she can, finally collapsing outside a shrine where a traveling nun sits with her flute. When the soldiers arrive, the nun sets her flute aside, drawing a legendary sword. She kills the men easily and sets the young girl free.

Thousand Shrine Warrior - Jessica Amanda Salmonson. I play my shakuhachi at city gates and temples, it is true, and before the kitchen doors of houses and fronts of stores. I am paid by whoever has been pleased to hear me. PART ONE. The Nameless Nun. The woman, pale with fright, hurried through moonlit woods, stumbling, breathing heavily, trying not to cry out. The cloth obi, which ordinarily wrapped around her waist several times to hold her kimono together, was half undone. It trailed the ground behind her, catching on fallen branches. Her kimono threatened to open altogether. Same thing! Chojiro said with a childlike spitefulness. Jesse Amos Salmonson (1950-01-06)January 6, 1950 Seattle, Washington.

Thousand Shrine Warrior is the third book in the Tomoe Gozen trilogy (The first two being Tomoe Gozen, and The Golden Naginata, with the currently-in-print Disfavored Hero being the reprint/uncut version of Tomoe Gozen) and it does an unthinkably. Characters in this book affected me, and I have had insights because of this book.

It was not the same story I remember reading in college. There were some things in there that I must have missed the first time that took me out of the story on a second reading. Fascinating story concepts, though.

I found the first book of this trilogy (Tomeoe Gozen) at a library sale, and was captivated. Everything about it; from the unique character, to the inventive alternative Japan, to the elegant writing style, to the unbelievable amount of sheer STORY packed into the first 66 pages, was remarkable.

Not easy to find the rest of the out-of-print series, but wonderfully rewarding. Very involved storytelling, complex and somehow very Japanese. And I can say that the heroine, Tomoe Gozen, starts out a complete original and is uniquely transformed by her (frequently awful) experiences, right up to the heart-wrenching final scenes of the last book. Be warned, though: happy endings, dreams fullfilled, walking towards a sunset hand-in-hand towards some happily-ever-after future...not prominently featured. Tomoe Gozen is, throughout, a tragic figure

I cannot recommend this highly enough to fans of fantasy, samurai stories, excellent writing, sword fighting, mythic adventure and japanophiles in general.

Great Book! If you love Samurai stories, this is a wonderful entertainment. Tomoe was a real warrior, it gives an account of the era and what it must have been like to travel the long road.
  • Musical Aura Island
An alternate fantasy Japan with a strong woman warrior as the central character. She deals with demons both internal and external. A very satisfying story well told.

Thousand Shrine Warrior (The Tomoe Gozen Saga Book 3)Jessica Amanda Salmonson finishes the Tomoe Gozen saga much stronger than it started off. Tomoe is a 'free' woman in that she's a nun now, one who worships the 'Thousand Shrines' and through that, can visit almost any shrine and find welcome.

This saga wraps up with a novel length tale, unlike previous volumes that were shorter stories joined by longer themes. The land of Naippon is one that is not as wracked by war as it has been in previous novels, but this brings its own problems such as poorly disciplined samurai and samurai who takes jobs that would normally be beneath them.

The supernatural elements are in full swing this time around too with threads of destiny and ancestry tying Tomoe to one of the villains of this tale, Kuro the Darkness.

Thousand Shrine Warrior: Third Novel in the Tomoe Gozen Saga -by Jessica Amanda Salmonson

I don't remember reading this third and last book in the series. I remembered the first two books, in fact I mentioned it was a bit like meeting up with her high school BFF and catching up on the gossip. But this story was entirely new. And a total page burner.

I am both delighted I finished this book - now I can get back to my writing and household chores; and very saddened I finished this book - I feel as if I said, "Goodbye" to an old friend, Tomoe Gozen.

The trilogy was called 'gloomy' by the author, and though it does have it's gloomy aspects, it truly was a good read. It is, after all, a Samurai tale. Lots of good sword fights, honorable vengeance fights, and the restoration of the Samurai's soul. A good read on the differences between Buddhists and followers of Shinto, at least in the fantasy land of Naipon.

I highly recommend this trilogy to anyone who enjoys this sort of story. Well told, nicely executed, a heckuva fun romp.

Jessica Amanda Salmonson is one of the two best Fantasy authors I have encountered in my entire, very prolific, reading career.
Thousand Shrine Warrior is the third book in the Tomoe Gozen trilogy (The first two being Tomoe Gozen, and The Golden Naginata, with the currently-in-print Disfavored Hero being the reprint/uncut version of Tomoe Gozen) and it does an unthinkably breathtaking job of continuing the already entrancing series at a height that is as complex, beautiful, and thought-provoking as the first two books.
I got a lot out of this book. Characters in this book affected me, and I have had insights because of this book. Far apart from her brilliance in writing a complex, engrossing, female-positive (at a time when having a female heroine was unthinkable!) fantasy novel set in an exaustively-researched mythological Japan, Salmonson is also an incredible writer in the literary sense as well. I cannot imagine anyone taking the effort to acquire this book and this series and not being esctatic about the decision after reading them. In all sincerity; this author may rekindle your faith in and love for the Fantasy Genre.
