I am afraid that the favor of Heaven no longer rests upon the Middle Kingdom and now our trials have finally begun.Ó Keeper of the Sanctuary (124th year of the Ming dynasty) When enigmatic nonhuman visitors arrive from the sea, the very foundations of the Middle Kingdom are under attack.

A legendary swordsman allies himself with a banished Shaolin monk, a defeated bandit chieftain, a carefree Mongol, and an unknown philosopher who knows the only hope for victory.
