    1. It's not unusual to market books from the past, often characterizing them "classic", "re-imagined", "lost gem", etc. Gonji is a series that deserves all those praises and more. First published in the eighties, the series published five books before cancelation, mostly due to the publisher's mishandling. This era of self-published authors is the perfect moment to discover this Sword & Sorcery gem. Gonji Sabatake, half-samurai - half-"Viking", is the existential loner encountered -rarely- in F [...]

    2. This book is a well-written and solid Sword & Sorcery fantasy set in the area of the Carpathian Mountains. Gonji is a unique character, a ronin, born of a Scandinavian mother and a Japanese father raised as a samurai. This parentage gives Gonji an interesting character conflict, as he tries to reconcile this wanderlust and adventurous spirit with his notions of family honor and his duties as a former samurai. Rypel smoothly interjects the lore and fantasy elements into the setting. Fans of S [...]

    3. I`ve hoped that this will be a stand alone book, but, in fact, you have to read the other books in a row to get a proper ending.This first volume has two parts. The first one it`s more alert, more fight driven, we walk acrossed a big piece of land, and a second one, in wich there are still fights, but has more intrigue and the events happen only in the area of a fortified town. With a population in majority made of romanians!!! But that`s all that it`s to this fact, there isn`t anything more det [...]

    4. Gonji’s Deathwind – The Godzilla of Sword & Sorcery?Some splendid reviews already exist for Gonji: Red Blade from the East, in particularFletcher Vredenburgh’s January 21st 2014 Post on Blackgate is extremely thorough. This provides another summary, and some more complementary information. Gongi Is A Unique, Entertaining Mashup: Gongi is a wandering, displaced warrior--a Ronin (master-less samurai) roaming 16th century Europe. This is not historical fiction, however. This is Sword & [...]

    5. FANTASTIC!!!!The Siege of Vedun has only just begun! I've said it before, on GoodReads, in my review of the audio version of Book One, and on the paperback reissue of Book One --- The Deathwind Trilogy is one of the best epic fantasies that I've had the pleasure to read. Rypel commands a mastery of the language that makes me envious. His writing is powerful, exciting -- and never dull. His dialogue pops and does what good dialogue is supposed to do: advance plot, reveal character, create tension [...]

    7. Not only is the book it's based on (Volume One in the 5-novel saga of Gonji) one fantastic experience, this audio version totally rocks! It's read by Brian Holsopple, who successfully captures the energy, the crackling dialog, the subtle nuances, the emotional power, and the pathos of Ted Rypel's prose. Listening to this excellent Audio CD conjures images in the mind -- images of unforgettable characters like Gonji the Samurai, Simon Sardonis, and Lydia Bendetto -- images of epic, well-choreogra [...]
