Shaolin Burning (Ant Sang)

Shaolin Burning
Ant Sang

Blurb: Old China like you've never seen before, Shaolin Burning, is an exciting, modern take on Kung Fu mythology; a fusion of punked-up street culture and Chinese tradition.

When the Shaolin Temple is destroyed by the Emperor's army, only five monks manage to escape alive. Or so the legend goes.

But few know the story of the sixth, Monk Who Doubts, who turns his back on the Buddhist path and embarks on a bloody trail of revenge, culminating in a devastating showdown with the Emperor's forces.

Fewer still know the story of Deadly Plum Blossom. Unwanted at birth, she is rescued and raised by a Shaolin nun. Trained all her life in a new fighting story, she is determined to prove herself, and sets off to challenge the most dangerous man in China.

Shaolin Burning is a masterful interweaving of kung fu legends, Chinese history and stories of those lost to the past. It is a story of breathtaking beauty and no-holds-barred action sequences and is, at its heart, a meditation on the dangers of pursing one's talents.
