A spectacular, nail-biting race across Ancient China. Don’t miss a wingbeat …
Ancient China, Han Dynasty. A slave girl saves the life of an ageing dragon and escapes her brutal master. Pursued by a ruthless dragon hunter, the girl and the dragon make an epic journey across China carrying a mysterious stone that must be protected. This is the story of a young slave girl who believes she is not worthy of a name but finds within herself the strength and courage to make this perilous journey — and do what must be done.
'… an ambitious novel, marrying ancient Chinese history and culture with magic and fantasy … the sights, smells and tastes of this fantastic ancient China are fully realised.'
