Product Description

The Legend of Snow Wolf is a sweeping work of epic fiction in the Chinese Wuxia (martial arts) tradition. Warriors, battles, supernatural powers, prophecy, and destiny collide in a whirlwind of violence, intrigue, and romance linking time and space. On the plains of the China/Mongolia border in legendary times, wolves and men fight for domination of the steppe. Sochai, a young warrior, finds himself mysteriously poisoned. He will die an agonizing death unless an antidote is found, and all the clues as to who poisoned him point to the legend of Snow Wolf: once revered as a goddess, a great heroine, master strategist, and savior of her people. Snow Wolf may provide the answers he needs to save his own life, but at what cost? Embarking on a desperate quest with the alchemist Li Kung to discover the secret of Snow Wolf, the pair become embroiled with the Dragon Houses; secret and mysterious, who rule the land as enemies of Snow Wolf and stand in the way of their quest. Little do they know that Snow Wolf has already devised a plan to rid the world of the Dragon Houses forever using Li Kung as her unwitting agent: but Sochai has a role to play in Snow Wolf’s plan; if he can survive…. In 2012, China Books published a 2-volume version of The Legend of Snow Wolf for the young adult market. This new version is known as The Legacy Edition and is a more accurate reflection of the author’s original vision: a one-volume epic with more adult-oriented themes, more intense action, and glorious violence. This book will appeal to fans of martial arts fiction and Asian fantasy.
