This was a good read. It had good characters, interesting plot, and a surprising ending. good summer read with a conclusion. Also on my bookshelf is the first book in the two part series. (i hate reading books that don't have endings ,i.e. wheel of time series.)
The magnificent concluding volume of The Initiate Brother. This fantasy interweaves Asian culture, mysticism, and martial arts with magic in an epic story of war, deception, illicit passion, and mystery. Initiate Brother Shuyun, spiritual advisor to the military governor of the province of Seh, receives a shocking message from the barbarian lands--the massive army ofthe Golden K han is poised at their border. And it may fall to one young monk with extraordinary powers to save the Empire. Original.
Excellent conclusion to "The Initiate Brother" -- the books are set in a mythical, fantasy China and are intriguing and full of energy.
