-- "Are you looking for a great gift idea? Young readers love the engaging characters of this fun book," Dee said.
On a trip near the ancient silk route in northwestern China, sibling teenagers Monkey and Orchid Huang meet the eccentric hermit Master Mu and discover a long-hidden magical stone. A mystic force whisks the trio three thousand years back to ancient China, arriving as the Zhou armies are amassing troops to battle the Yin Dynasty forces. They're given the task of harnessing power within the ancient stone to prevent the looming war and usher in a new dynasty and era of peace.
As they battle mythical beasts, battle-hardened soldiers, a powerful sorcerer, and the pernicious Great Powers, they struggle to find their own talents and powers.
Loosely based on historical events, The Power of Powers
appeals to readers interested in fantasy, mythology, and folklore. This 123,000-word novel is available in paperback and multiple e-book formats, and is the first book in the series The Huaxia Journals
