“Picking up where YING-YANG CODE: THE DRUMS OF TENKAI-BO left off, this second part of legendary ninja movie superstar Sho Kosugi and co-author Warren Chaney’s epic saga amps up the action, intensifies the drama, and dives full on into the mystical world of Japanese history, legends, and deadly warriors. Racing against time to rescue his beloved Jun who has been abducted by the evil Tenkai-Bo and his army of shugenja warriors, Daiki and his friends continue their quest to find the lost treasure of the legendary Japanese monk Kukai, by searching for pieces of a puzzle at the 88 temples of Shikoku.
Like the first book, this one had me on the edge of my seat and I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next. And like its predecessor, YING-YANG CODE: SHADOW OF TENKAI-BO is not only written in a very visually descriptive style but features wonderful illustrations by Shinobu Ohno and Mr. Chaney that beautifully bring to life the characters and events being described. All the way through I kept thinking this would also make an amazing graphic novel (comic book), or better yet an awesome movie. Loaded with exciting martial arts action, numerous mysteries, secret revelations, shocking betrayals, sadistic villains and courageous heroes, YING-YANG CODE: SHADOW OF TENKAI-BO has it all.”

“Yin-Yang Code is a marvelous amalgam of noble young hero, imperiled maiden and satanic villain. There has not been such an exciting contest between good and pure evil for more than eighty years when Flash Gordon fought Ming the Merciless with the fate of earth hanging in the balance. Chaney and Kosugi’s hero Daiki and super villain TenkaiBo revive the serial of yore—elevating the genre to new heights for 21st-Century readers.”

“Shadow of Tenkai-Bo, is the second fast-paced thriller in Chaney and Kosugi’s classic series, the Yin-Yang Code. The book’s artwork is spectacular but in no way, overshadows its fast-paced story. From the start, the reader is propelled through an incredibly fascinating adventure mystery. The authors play fair, but it is nearly impossible to guess the end. Still it was fun, trying.”
— Aner Iglesias, Honorary Counsul of El Salvador
“Full of action but at times tender and compassionate, Ying-Yang Code is a fast-moving tale of mystery, intrigue and loyalty. Authors Chaney and Kosugi deftly apply their broad yet deep knowledge of history, culture, religion and martial arts to introduce readers to the mystical elements of Japan. This book is difficult to put down as the pages move forward in anticipation
of the clues to the “code” and its associated mysteries.”

“Chaney and Kosugi’s sequel, Yin-Yang Code: Shadow of Tenkai-Bo, surpasses the thrill, mystery, and excitement of their first novel. Readers will be stunned by the way in which the book and its mystery concludes. I promise, you won’t figure it out even with the authors playing fair in their writing. Their new novel is breathtakingly exciting, carrying you from chapter to chapter without any letup in tension or adventure.
