The Ninja's Oath
Lily Wong Mystery Thrillers, Book 4
Lily Wong—a Chinese-Norwegian modern-day ninja—travels from Shanghai to Japan in an explosive joint mission with her father’s former-triad cook and the assassin J Tran to locate and rescue a kidnapped twelve-year-old girl while, back home in Los Angeles, her father’s health wanes.
Their mission is aided and complicated by an enigmatic assassin with a discomforting fascination for Lily. When the hunt for the niece leads to another missing relative, the trio of dangerous heroes—ninja, triad, and assassin—are pitted against an even greater foe. Meanwhile, Chang’s family must be moved from the shikumen house in Old Shanghai before the government tears it down. This would be simpler if not for the feud between brothers and the old resentments and intrigues entwined with the stunning history of the city itself.
Lily is pushed to her limits as she faces potentially insurmountable odds and worries about her father’s undiagnosed disease. At the same time, she is shocked by the true identity of her ninja teacher—known only Sensei—and the truth behind why he left Japan. THE NINJA’S OATH is the thrilling new novel in Tori Eldridge’s acclaimed, multi-award nominated Lily Wong series, sure to leave readers breathless and riveted until the last page is turned!
Praise for The Ninja's Oath and The Lily Wong Series
“[Lily] Wong is one of the greatest heroines of the 21st century.”
“Loyalty, family and martial arts take center stage in The Ninja’s Oath, a smashing thriller that climaxes with a death-filled battle royale that would make Quentin Tarantino blush. Tori Eldridge kills it with this tale, interchanging tender family moments with explosive, slashing fisticuffs.
The dichotomy of family and violence makes for an exceedingly absorbing read… This might have been my first Tori Eldridge book but it won’t be my last!
―Best Thriller Books
“Eldridge excels at orchestrating thrilling martial arts fights, and at brisk plotting… Everything here suggests this series can sustain a long run.”
“Lily Wong is my kind of kick ass heroine. Love this series. Fast-paced and adrenaline-packed!”
—Lisa Gardner, #1 bestselling author of ONE STEP TOO FAR
“Tori Eldridge had me at ninja warrior, but this wonderful series offers so much more than propulsive action. Eldridge’s Lily Wong avenger is pure hustle and all heart, a character you’ll not soon forget. Love this series. It offers all the feels.”
—Tracy Clark, two-time Sue Grafton Memorial Award-winning author of HIDE.
“One word: Badass. Lily Wong is as tough as she is smart and will go to the ends of the earth to put bad guys in their place. I love this heroine, I love Eldridge’s stories, and I love The Ninja’s Oath. Tense, evocative, with beautifully-choreographed fight scenes that only a trained dancer and martial artist like Eldridge could write, The Ninja’s Oath is as action-packed as it is thrilling.”
—NYT bestselling author Tosca Lee
