Calm and thoughtful, Hok is a crane-style kung fu master carefully attuned to others, but she has never spent much time looking inward. After barely surviving the destruction of two warrior-monk strongholds, Hok realizes her old world is gone. She finds her way to the city of Kaifeng and begins a new life.
But her old life intervenes, and she must join forces with Fu and Seh to pursue the captured Malao. Their quest takes them to the city of Jinan and into the sinister underground world of fight clubs, where matches are fixed and rules don't exist. Against incredible odds, the young monks must use their sharp wits to stay together and their formidable kung fu skills to survive.
Don't miss the rest of The Five Ancestors series.

"Quite a page-turner." (School Library Journal)
Awesome, Awesome story, couldn't wait for the next book to appear on Audible, gotta proceed, end up buying the Kindle edition!
My sons (9 and 11) loved this entire series. I was not as interested in it. I found that the stories were not as exciting, nor as well-written as they could have been. I frequently found that my mind would wander as I was listening to them, and that I would lose the thread of the story just because the language wasn't all that interesting, nor were the twists and turns of the story particularly surprising or exciting. But, with that said, this, the last book in the series, was the best of the whole group. The author did a good job of pulling together plot elements from the earlier four stories, and there was a good amount of excitement and unexpected plot elements.
