A great fantasy debut with elements of Chinese Taoist philosophy and martial arts. This is storytelling at its best… adventurous, exciting and with a touch of the gods.
When 28-year-old Emma Donahoe becomes a nanny to John Chen's daughter, Simone, she does not expect to be drawn into a world of martial arts, magic, and extreme danger, where both gods and demons can exist in the mortal world.
Emma gradually realises that John Chen is no ordinary businessman and that nearly all the demons in hell would like to see him dead. John and his American bodyguard, Leo, begin to teach Emma their particular brand of martial arts and special defensive techniques... they also begin to realise that there is something that is different about Emma but exactly what it is, nobody can say.
A fabulous, fast-paced and very entertaining fantasy adventure... a trilogy based on Chinese mythology, set in modern-day Hong Kong, where an ancient god falls in love with a young Australian woman...
