Bam! The dawn we have all been waiting for Reviewed by Raiku on Feb. 24, 2009. Raiku has written 1 review. His/her last review was for Departure.

Just as the title says its a Bam since the introduction of Sasuke we have all wondered who'd win Naruto on his Kyubi Kyubi chakra, or Sasuke on his fully awakened Sharingan. Well in this book lies the answer to that big question. As the battle heats up. Sasuke awakens his three tome Sharingan, now able to see and predict Naruto's next movement even with his Kyubi chakra. It seems as though Naruto is done for as Sasuke easily evades and counter attacks of Naruto's  full raged attacks. Desperate Naruto sends a near army of Kage Bushin at Sasuke but to little affect as Sasuke doesnt even use chakra to dispell them but rather simple taijutsu. This angers Naruto further and he comes at Sasuke with everything he has. Going as far as creating a line of Kage Bushin and smash Sasuke into the mountain. However things dont work out and Sasuke uses Ryuuka no Jutsu to ignite all the clones. The flames of the attack are so hot they create near magma leaving Naruto unconscious on the ground. Using lions barrage Sasuke slams Naruto head first down into the rock floor. Naruto flips and then lands on water appearing as though drowning. Desperate the /kyubi offers Naruto a far greater dosage of the cursed power. Causing Naruto's unconscous body to rise and hit Sasuke's face so hard he begins reacting for the first time to a hit. The chakra becomes a cloak like substance giving rise to the infamous Demon Fox Cloak. Which Jiriya himself claims is dangerous, Sasuke thinks nothing has changed, wrong although he's able to block Naruto's movements the chakra cloak itself moves on its own andstrikes Sasuke down hard. Thinking to keep his distance the cloak simply reacts by extending its hand which forces Sasuke to fly upwards but to little dismay as the cloak follows him. Eventually Sasuke is forced to use the power of the curse seal to its max and awaken curse level 2. Which cause Sasuke to make a demonic transformation which many believe ressemble a tengu. He also grows wings which are actually giant hands with clawed fingers as feathers. Both prepare their strongest move Sasuke Chidori, Naruto Rasengan and both attac on equl in the end Sasuke's head band gets struck but Naruto ends up being defeated. Sasuke spares Naruto claiming he wants to earn power his own way and he departs leaving his head band behind as testament to abandoning Konoha's ways.
this battle which I explain in great detail shows Sasukes willingness to exact revengbe on Itachi. It also shows how far Naurto would go for his friend Sasuke. It has great action in it and small taste of DBZ style brutality. It also shows for the first time the level and depth of Naruto's Kyubi chakra. And how the curse mark truly reacted to a person with a Sharingan. and leaves the reader guessing where to now from here?
