Travelling back to 1860, they find themselves in the midst of the bloody Taiping Rebellion: a world of China warlords, empires and brave rebels. But Jack and Angus possess an object that all the warring factions want and, it's not long before the boys find themselves - and the future of the world - in grave danger.
