Description

The third book in an addictive new urban fantasy series of gods and demons, martial arts and mythology, from the author of White Tiger.


Ancient Chinese mythology comes to life in this bestselling series of martial arts and demons, dragons and gods, legends and lies ... and a journey to the depths of Hell.


The demons that could control stones and elementals have been defeated, but the most powerful of Simon Wong's associates still remains - the one who can create almost undetectable copies of humans and Shen. This demon has allied with Kitty Kwok and together they plot to trap Emma and Simone in a web of copies.


Wudang Mountain is enveloped by dark foreboding as Xuan Wu begins to reappear - sometimes human, sometimes turtle, but always without memory. Emma and Simone must race from Hong Kong to Hanoi as they try to rescue Xuan Wu before the demons capture him.

Our customer reviews

Heaven to Wudang is the third novel in the Journey to Wudang series by Australian author, Kylie Chan. While the demon essence has been removed from Emma, John has disappeared again, until Simone manages to track the turtle down in Hanoi. His appearances are a bit like a badly-tuned radio station: his form, gender and memory are all highly variable. In this instalment: Gold and Amy make babies and get married; Kitty Kwok and the Snake Death Mother kidnap at least two members of the Chen household; one of the Generals sacrifices himself to fill John up with energy; an ovary is stolen; the Grandmother of all stones (Ayers Rock?) helps Emma out; HIV raises its head again; there's a visit to Angkor Wat; Emma ends up in hospital with amnesia (her isolation incident there quite inaccurate: medical staff do not behave that way); lots of undetectable demon copies infiltrate the Mountain; there is a scan of Emma's brain, Celestial style; and Simone's horse, Freddo, has trouble controlling his hormonal urges (hilarious!). Once again, there is plenty of martial arts action (a bit too much for my liking) and I notice that in Hong Kong much of it happens in carparks (note to self: avoid carparks in HK). The rules under which the Earthly and the Heavens operate seem quite arbitrary and rather confusing. The story is filled with interesting information about Chinese mythology, Taoism and Martial Arts. There are a lot of characters, often with more than one name or title and occasionally, it is difficult to remember who they are and to whom they are related. Another cliff hanger leading into the final (and about time too) series of three: Celestial Battle, the first of which is titled Dark Serpent, due in possibly 2013. Meanwhile, the graphic prequel Small Shen should keep fans happy. Still a good read.show more
