In 1820s China, British opium smuggling threatens the sovereignty of the Manchu Empire itself. Feng Meili is a Shaolin-trained assassin whose first assignment is to recover the Iron Fan—a National Treasure that's supposed to have magical powers—and kill the collaborator who stole it.
Can she and Feng Bao infiltrate an Imperial Prince's palace and perform a daring rescue?
When Bao is killed, Meili must escape Beijing, braving pursuers, storms and fires to find in herself surprising new abilities and meeting an incredible new ally.
Decades before she and her Shaolin Master son flee to Japan and open the Tokyo dojo where Noriko trains, this is the story of how Feng Meili meets Long, known in Japan as Ryuujin, the Dragon King.
