The Empire’s Bladesmen: Forbidden Relics
by Clay Vagrant
Captain Shao Lian, a battle-hardened veteran of the Ming Dynasty’s imperial army, is a respected officer in the Jinyiwei, the emperor’s elite bodyguards. This notorious and politically-powerful secret service organization also functioned as the emperor’s premiere intelligence agency and iron fist.
After Shao Lian was assigned to eliminate a ruthless crime lord after he had seized power over several frontier towns, he discovers that the Blood Foot Syndicate had awakened a powerful and terrifying adversary from a bygone era. Shao Lian and the soldiers in his command suddenly find themselves waging a harrowing war of survival against allied criminal gangs and an ancient being who commands hordes of monsters.
With a Venetian scholar named Lilianna, they discover the secrets of prehistory and unravel a conspiracy that set ancient mechanisms into motion that threaten the entire world.
