Naruto has always wanted to know how to control the power within him, and Killer Bee is finally ready to show him how. He takes him to a giant island in the middle of the ocean, a place where they are free to train out of society’s watchful eye. He’s not there just to learn new skills, however—he’s being hidden from Tobi’s forces, who are out to take Naruto’s power for themselves! Having the force of the Nine Tails fall into the wrong hands could turn the tide of war, and all the greatest Shinobi leaders have agreed to shut him away for the good of the world. But without the tremendous help that Naruto could offer them, attaining victory could prove to be nothing more than a dream.
Since Tobi enlisted the evil mastermind Kabuto’s help in his war against the Allied Shinobi Forces, things have taken an even bigger turn for the worse. The brilliant shinobi has created a new jutsu the world has never seen—one that allows him to bring back the greatest warriors in history from the dead! Old friends and foes alike are brought to the battlefield to wage war against our heroes, and more than a few hearts are bound to be broken. But that's just what Kabuto is after, since their hesitation will give him the perfect opportunity to strike! What will happen when past meets the present in such a dire situation?
