Quick Summary

In the mid-ninteenth century, the Qing Dynasty in China was toppled by the Lyon Republic and rebels from the southern regions of China that spoke Cantonese.  The new dynasty proclaimed that since it would be ruled heavily by the people, it would outlive the claims of the Qin Emperor and last for ten thousand years.  They named the nation "daai juk dai gwok", or 大玉帝國 in Chinese.  Directly translated as the Great Jade Empire, they also proclaimed that despite its heavy Han Chinese population, every country that joins them would be equal under their new imperial law.  By 1873, they had conquered Korea, Japan, the Philippines, Loas, Combodia, and Vietnam.  Quickly learning to industrialize, they learned from their British and Lyonian allies to build the empire into an industrial and agricultural powerhouse, rivaling the British Empire and the United States by 1898.  They served in World War One, and gained the admiration of countries worldwide, selling and loaning billions of dollars worth of military equipment to the Allies.

In 1987, the nation's of Europe and the Americas were locked in a Cold War stance, the United States targeting Mexico and the Juk, the Mexicans and Juk targeting each other, the United States, and the Soviet Union, Thailand and the British targeting even more countries, it was really a mess.  When pro-Mexican Juk citizens took up arms and started a rebellion in soenghoi (Shanghai), the Great Chinese Civil War began and the entire nation was plunged into a massive bloodbath until 1990, when anti-world troops won the civil war and the empire returned to the way it was before.
Now the year is 2002, the USSR, and Mexican Empire have collapsed, and are now ruled by new governements.  This story follows the story of Loeng Han Jyu, a student who doesn't know that he is son of the current emperor, or that he is heir to the Imperial Throne.

Tiffany Thomson: This story is not something I would normally pick up and read but I'm so glad I did, I wasn't able to put it down and my husband was yelling at me at 3am to put it down and go to bed (just waited for him to doze back off before picking it back up) I really hope Natalie brings out another book eit...

Olivia N J Hamel: I want this book. I love it so much. It is so enjoyable to read and to have a copy of this always, I would be very happy, to always be able to come back and look at it again.

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

Charlie_8472: Recommended to me by a friend, I thought I'd give this a read. As a hobbyist blacksmith, the blurb certainly caught my attention. I found the sentence about them drinking, dancing and fighting a strange combination of activities, perhaps a reflection of the writer’s personality and humour. Howeve...

heavyreader: great scifi novels but needs a better spell checker (check auto-substitution level) and grammar checker!!! otherwise, ready for mass market publishing!!

themyronus: Vanessa has made 'amazing' the norme. I didn't want to read this as I am waiting for the finished and polished book to come out. But then I decided to read one chapter for kicks...well hours later I finished what was posted. Fortunately, my memory is not to good and I hope I will read the book wi...

Prasino45: Hi! I happen to see your updated chapter on FF.NET!It happened to be about you coming onto Inkitt with this story! I've been a fan for a while! I'm a scqualphie writer myself. I ship them HARD! Love this story! I'm gonna do a reread as you said you changed some things! Glad we both made the switc...

Hawkebat: Playing both Kotor I & II and Swtor I found the story line interesting and it held me until chapter 35 Very good story and plot flow until then, very few technical errors. I felt that the main character was a bit under and over powered, as it fought for balance. The last few chapters felt too f...

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...

Girl on Fire: Great story, line Alex!!!It really has a edge on it. It put me on edge with its thrill. Can't wait to read the rest.!!!

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

cassandrab: Delightful SciFi (for a change)! I am not a SciFi fan: mostly the genre is far too dystopic for me. This book (written by a high-school friend) is, on the other hand, generally upbeat. Yes, Earth's future is threatened. But Earth has a chance to plan a response. And (spoiler alert) ultimately win...
