I think this book is very good because it had very interesting scenes that I liked. My favorite character is Tenko because he is brave, courageous, and a great family member. I liked that they put a six year old, Brockan in the story. He made it interesting and funny! I think they made it very fascinating and unique by putting it in a very old setting. I liked that you could not guess what would happen in the end. There were many twists and turns. The illustrations were very good at describing what was happening. I did not like the killing though. At some point it was kind of gruesome. The one thing I really want is for them to make a sequel. The book ends at a cliffhanger!
I would recommend this book to people. I think you will really like it. If you love animals it might not be the choice for you. The age range in my opinion is 9-12 years old. If you like an action-packed cool book, you will like The Boy with the Bronze Axe. I bet you will think it's an amazing book.
