Crane

Crane is written by Jeff Stone. Reviewed by Josh Cochran.

This past week I read the 4th book in the Five Ancestors Series, Crane. Hok has hidden, disguised as a boy in Canghzen Temple for 9 years. When Canghzen is destroyed, Hok flees to Shaolin Temple. When Shaolin is also destroyed, Hok is blamed for it. She fights General Tsung (Monk) and gets her arm broken. Soon she gets to the Yellow River and, after waiting a long time, she is rescued by Charles, a Dutch boy who knows Hok’s mother. Hok reunites with her mother, Bing (Ice), and her little sister, GongJee (Princess). She trains to perform at The Dragon Boat festival. When the festival arrives some of the Resistance also arrives. Hok, Bing, GongJee, Charles, and the Bandits (the Resistance) are at the festival attacked by Tonglong and his men. This book is awesome.
