"A ravishing work of historical fiction about devotion and revenge amid the 'bloodstained dust' of war." - Kirkus ReviewsIf you enjoyed the movies Ang Lee's "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" and Jet Li's "Hero," you'll ABSOLUTELY LOVE this book! Dew on Ginkgo Leaves opens on a vast Chinese battlefield filled with clashing armored warriors, arrows bombarding the skies and men on horses slicing through the thick hordes of soldiers. This is where we find our heroine, Jade Flower, also known as the "Tigress." She and her husband Wu Lei are part of an elite fighting class of warriors, trained to be the secret weapons of the Emperor. The two of them glide through the battle cutting down their enemies with grace and finesse. But a dark hooded figure steps out from the shadows and with a long draw on their bow they aim their sights at Wu Lei. The poisoned arrow pierces through Wu Lei and time stands still for Jade as she watches her husband, her one true love die before her eyes. Now a widow Jade seeks vengeance for her husbands death with the poisoned arrow tip as her only clue to his killer. But Jade's story doesn't end here, it is merely the beginning as she is summoned to the Emperor's palace. She arrives to meet with the Emperor who pays his respects to her fallen love. But the Emperor has plans for her and quickly Jade discovers that she is to be married that night to General Yu Luan, another elite widowed warrior and possible traitor to the empire. As a direct order from the Emperor she must comply. Both epic and cinematic, Dew on Ginkgo Leaves is a tale about love, loss and conspiracy set in the mystical realm of China. This story comes from a land of tradition and honor and is an action-packed epic filled with elaborate martial arts fighting sequences. At the heart of this journey are two widowed warriors who find strength within one another as they learn to trust and love again. This novel is the first of a series of books that center around Jade Flower (The Tigress) and her journey as a warrior hero. In the end, Jade will learn what it means to overcome loss and dig deep within herself to find strength to continue on. Four hearts, two of them gone, now beat as one as Jade learns that love can conquer any war.
