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.

petew25: I have been reading WW2 novels for years and am a retired Marine pilot. Though the plot in some ways reminded me of the Gregory Peck classic leadership movie, "Twelve O'Clock High" I thought the author did a good job overall. The plot was believable and the characters were as well. In some places...

Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang". The characters are so diverse and complicated that each of them could just about spawn their own story. Eric's buddies are just so captivating and the plot just rolls along. Again...

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...

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.

Theresa Alley: right from the start it is of the genre I love!! And it doesn't slow down from there!! I love that it kept me reading til I had no more story left to read!!

Catherine Kopf: This novel has an interesting perspective on a broken mind that obviously the author took a lot of time into creating. The main protagonist is very fleshed out and complex, allowing the readers to root for and feel empathy towards him. There is enough in there to really give the reader an emotion...

CookieMonster911: The story overall was an adventure that is appealing to any age. The way the characters develop adds a more human characteristic to the novel. The writing style itself is amazing because you can learn every character's thoughts and emotions. The awkward love triangle and jerk moments adds to the ...

Jordi Roig Avellanet: The first one really took me up for a ride and surprised me really pleasently. This one, up until now, has been amazing too. The characters and their powers are very curious and I'd like to see where all this intense dark plotting goes. I hope it gets finished.

Giuliana Cassetta: My face is full of tears, I never cried like now with a book or even a movie. I loved every single chapter. I truly don't know what to say, I'm out of words and my eyes hurt from crying. Such an bittersweet story, it's so wonderful. One of my favorites for sure. Keep it up!

dd1226: I love reading about other countries and I think this story about Cambodia after Polpot creates awareness of the tragedy that happened there and the actions of the U.N. to hold elections. The heroine of the story is easy to relate to, a modern, middleaged woman looking for an adventure, wanting t...
