The Third Peregrination by Edward C. Patterson
-- The world is on the brink, now that the relics flow together again. The new China Hands should have left the Jade Owl in the tomb, to fester silently for another age, but they didn’t. Now there is a tapping in the basement and a flowering of new relics, all seeking to move Curator-General Rowden Gray and his crew into the field again to solve the mystery of The Seven Sisters. However, the world has changed since Rowden managed his first task. The new China Hands are sucked into the maelstrom of time, flowing together with the relics, now that the world is at the brink.
Rowden Gray and Nicholas Battle, joined by three new stalwarts in pursuit of the next level in the triad, find a fortress in a deeper mystery than the first warrant, something that compels them to return to China and unravel a more difficult truth — one that challenges them beyond time’s membrane. This second book in the Jade Owl Legacy Series pushes the new China Hands to the world’s brink — now that the relics flow together again.
On or about Friday, January 29th, the second book in The Jade Owl Legacy Series - The Third Peregrination will be published and available on Amazon.com in both paperback and Kindle format. The Jade Owl Legacy Series, which began with The Jade Owl, is a five book epic spanning three continents and centuries of Chinese History and culture in the spirit of a Tolkienesque fantasy. It will be buttressed by another series - Southern Swallow - the first book of which will be published in early March (The Academician)
. Book Three of the Jade Owl Legacy (The Dragon's Pool) is anticipated for early May 2009.
