Blurb

When a girl who has no clue about Chinese history is thrown into the past and confronted with rebels....she's clueless. Let's see.... After she let out two people who were stuck in dungeons, they claimed to have magical powers and dragged her along this crazy adventure to gather up ten "friends" to overthrow the corrupted emperor. It's insane.

An Impatient King

Ancient China, 222BC, about a year before Qin Shi Huang took over all of China. A secret that was never recorded in the history books...

"Your majesty, are you sure believing superstition will work? During a warring period, many of these are simply lies-"

"Are you suggesting that I am wrong?"

Perhaps the use of magic would work now.

The king (as he still was as of now) walked through a narrow passage and entered the dungeon. His advisors and scholars walked behind him in a straight line. His court had protested about his methods, but the king figured that this would be the quickest way to wipe out the remaining country.

Everyone quickly shuffled after the king, who was walking briskly towards a certain cell in the dark dungeon. The dark and stuffy air made it hard to concentrate, while the sight of criminals made your feet itch to just run far away.

The dungeon guards each bowed respectfully as the king walked by.

"No, of course not. However, you must understand superstition can be wrong at times!" the scholar said, walking as quickly as he could to catch up with the king.

The king ignored him with a sigh, turning around to a cell in the corner. Dealing with these people each and every day, all trying to order him around was quite a bother.

Exhausting processes and things that had to be taken care of were always rushed and done without any thought. The king really didn't like these advisors.

"This will be useful. I am sure of it," the king said firmly, taking a key from his armor and opening the cell. The cell's door creaked open, letting through some lights. An old woman was sitting on a bench. She had wispy white hair with wrinkles on her face. The dungeon she was in was filled with rusting metals, no windows or light could be seen from inside.

"Your Majesty," she croaked, bowing down slowly.

"Rise," he commanded.

The woman stood up and stared at the king. Her unblinking black eyes made people want to look away, but the king held his ground, staring back at her.

"What is it that you wish?" she asked.

The king took a deep breath. Usually, the only kind of superstition he believed in had to do with youth and life. However, this woman had claimed to have a different kind of magic.

So the king took his chances and made a gamble. Many things could go wrong with believing her words, or even letting her work her magic.

"Help me quickly wipe out the opposing country," the king requested solemnly.

The old woman frowned and blinked slowly.

"Ah. I see. Are you aware of the process it takes to do these things? And the people I need in order for this to succeed?" she asked sharply.

The king opened his mouth to yell at her. How dare she speak to him that way! But he closed his mouth, and nodded respectfully instead. If she didn't escape from this prison yet, she must've had a reason, or she wasn't powerful enough. Therefore, the king knew he still had control over her.

He knew, that for the sake of power, he would have to listen to her. For now.

"I will help you find everything to your liking. What do you need?" he asked bitterly.

She smiled.

"I need twelve people."

"Just twelve people? I can find you a whole army if you need it!" the king protested.

The woman smiled sadly.

"Ah. That is where you do not understand my king. Sometimes, the strongest things can come from something small, not large."

Shifa Gohar: this book is my first on inkitt and I love it thoroughly...but i guess this is not the end. The characters were amazing the plot too. At times it scared me more than a horror movie would. Love the plot something i had not read in a while.

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Stephen Warner: To start off, I am thoroughly impressed. The writing style is somewhat unique, and the plot seemed to move at a nice and steady pace. However, I was not expecting this to be a vampire book! I am usually not one for novels about vampires, but I was pleasantly surprised! You wrote with such grace a...

mitchreed519: Truly fantastic, I would buy this book and any other prequels or sequels there after. An empowering and intriguing novel, and well written. Best literature I've read in a while, beats out published books as well.

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

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 ...

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

This is gr...

Christopher Chew: Been a while since reading was this fun. The plot was easy to follow and built at a gradual but good pace.
