SUN ON SERENDIB - The Jade and Ruby Dragons “Some battles are worth losing, especially if it means I can keep you safe, precious.” Song Haoran, an adviser to the Emperor of the Song Dynasty, who also happens to be an illegitimate son of the Emperor, travels to the island of Serendib to establish an embassy and part of a trading loop. He meets a prince, Rajasekaran Chola who gives him a different perspective on life and shows him that he is worth much more than the work he does. But the Dynasties they represent are suddenly on different sides of the battlefield and they have to make hard decisions that they never imagined having to make. Haoran is unfortunately killed and they both think it's the end of their story. But five years later, in an unfamiliar place to Haoran, they meet again and Haoran falls for him again. So, Haoran stays by the prince, helping him in small ways as he gains power and learns to manipulate the world around him as a ghost.

Chapter 1

“I’m Dying, My Prince.” He laid in the man’s arms, with a familiar sword that had been in his chest, laying on the ground beside them, the hilt glittering in the lantern light.

“No! You can’t leave like this, you were supposed to win the battle and take me with you.”

“Some battles are worth losing, especially if it means I can keep you safe, precious.” He kissed his lover’s hand and wiped the tears from the man’s eyes. “My prince, when I leave, you must stand up and take credit for my death. This is why you are meant to rule the dynasty. Show everyone who doubted you, that they were wrong and you did what was right for your people. I am not important, find a wife and have children for me, you know I always wanted them anyways.”

“I can’t live without you, we were supposed to go back to your land and rule together.” He smiled at the distressed man in his eyes and reached into his inner robes. He took out a small, jade dragon on a string. It took a lot of effort to string the simple necklace around his lover’s neck but he managed.

“See you in the next life, Soulmate.”


His Soulmate clutched the pendant and held his hand, not letting go until he stopped breathing and everything went dark. He couldn’t remember if he had heard the man’s angry roar after or if that was an event that he formed a memory around from the stories. Whichever it was, Haoran didn’t care because he knew Sekaran had slaughtered the rest of the army after his death and that he never married. That silly man.

Rosanne Moroneso: I really like this story and hope it continues. A fed grammatical errors but easily overlooked as I enjoyed reading it.

Raphaella: Au début j'étais un peu sceptique, mais au final je me suis rapidement laissé emporter par l'histoire. Le style d'écriture est plutôt pas mal, on arrive facilement à se projeter dans les lieux de la trame. Les personnages sont bien travaillés, on s'attache facilement à eux. Bref j'ai passé un bon...

2jlynn: Love this series! The action, suspense, the chemistry of those in the MC makes this series flow. Am eager to read the next book, but know the sooner I complete a book the sooner the series ends. Not thrilled with this ending, but have no doubt this series will be read a couple times!

More Recommendations

Annie Kay: The dirt bag behavior with Marcus and erica was annoying and this story was amazing. The relationship development wasn't over time but more over rushed at the end and erica should have lost her relationship with Marcus when he started to be kind to his wife. It was a good story.

2jlynn: How can people do such horrible things... especially to the innocent? My heart hurts thinking of what is reality for some individuals. My life may not be "storybook", but comparatively speaking, there is nothing to complain about.

Deloris McCoy: I’m so enjoying this book. I love the serious side of the characters along with the sorrows, like being in an average everyday life. Also showing the funny side of them. Makes for a good read and not boring.

Deloris McCoy: I like these type of stories. This is a good one. I will be reading the rest of them. Keep writing.

Chaira Leusden: Loved all the books so much. And I just want to keep reading more. Too bad it has to end somewhere
