About the Book
Title: Gideon and the Crimson Samurai
Author: R.L. Baxter
Genre: Fantasy / Adventure
Gideon Joust is your average twelve-year-old boy, with all the growing insecurities one would expect, following the mysterious disappearance of his father. On one fateful day, the boy’s world is turned upside down – leading to a chance encounter with a brash child warrior: Kibishi the Crimson Samurai.
Gideon leaps off the bed and slowly approaches the bedroom window - peering up at the sky. He takes a deep breath as if preparing for another long day – watching as the townspeople carry on with their daily lives. The variation of people is quite something, compared to his home city of Shen. The boy stares in awe at: farmers, market sellers, and groups of unsupervised youth – to warriors, bounty hunters, adventurers, swordsmen, and mystics. In Shen, such diversity is unheard of, but outside its walls, the world seems to be a free-for-all of characters. Suddenly without warning, Kibishi pokes his head into the room from outside, inches from Gideon’s face - breaking his focus. Gideon falls backward, startled by his appearance.
Gideon: Ahhh... - don’t scare me like that Kibishi! And what are you doing outside?
Kibishi: I slept outside – moron. Besides, you’re always afraid of everything so it didn’t make a difference as to how I greeted you. Anyway let’s get going now. That witch is already complaining that we're taking too long.
Gideon: Huh, you want us to leave now? But it’s only nine o' clock and I just woke up!
The samurai leaps into the room before yawning, casually.
Kibishi: I just woke up too, but I guess we have no choice. Besides, the quicker we finish this task, the sooner we can resume our search for your father. Get up rich boy - we have work to do!
