Synopsis

Blink—and you’ll miss her.
Mei Barrett has been hiding all of her life. Raised in solitude by her beloved father, she’s been trained to fight, to adapt, to defend. She couldn’t prevent his death, however, when it comes at the hands of a mysterious creature straight out of legend. She could only run—and learn how to hide in plain sight.
For four long years Mei has lived alone on the fringes of a society still recovering from the devastation of quakes and disasters along the infamous Ring of Fire. Mei’s concerns are more immediate however. She must hide her eyes and their despised mutation, and she must stay one step ahead of the strange wind demon that continues to hunt her.
Detection was inevitable. But Mei begins to make some discoveries of her own. For it seems that her old enemy is not the only mythical creature on the loose. Nor is she the only one fighting them.
And perhaps her own tragedies are not as far removed from those the world is facing, after all.

***Sara, #NerdGirlSara Review***
 Eye of the Ninja was the book I’ve been dying for! I love Japanese folklore and ninjas and this YA did it perfectly! In a dystopian future where the world is now called JanFran. Mei is on the run and in hiding after her father’s death, so to stave off loneliness she joins a parkour group. I can’t believe I never made the connection between ninjas and parkour. It was described so well that I want to try parkour now! One day with the group, she meets the mysterious Ken who claims that he’s from the ninja village that she’s originally from. Curious about her history, she takes a leap of faith and follows him back to his home.

Don’t let that fool you though, this book is full of action and expertly-written fight scenes! Mei was an amazing teen heroine, more concerned about her safety and the creatures around her than boys

I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the next one.
