Yip Chi Chuan, a young martial and spiritual ascetic, must flee as the only home he has ever known, the ancient monastery of the Priests of K'un Lun, is destroyed by a newly ascendant extradimensional evil. Cast out and alone, Yip strikes out on a quest spanning the breadth of his home world of Ea'ae and into the greater macroverse beyond in an attempt to unseat an all-consuming Darkness rooted in his once vaunted order's distant past.

Will Yip, the last of his kind to walk the wide world beyond his fallen sanctuary, succeed where his mighty brethren failed in ages past?

Unfortunately for Yip, the answer appears all too clear... Without the guidance and teachings of his lineage, pursued by malevolent supernatural agents of the Cabal, unable to fully defend himself in a world steeped in magic, his quest may fail before it ever begins.

Unfazed by his limitations, guided by his inner vision and direct experience of the energies of life, the radiant chi suffusing and enlivening the world all around, he is determined to triumph where others have faltered.

To win forward, he will need help...but first he must survive.

A blend of Western fantasy and Eastern martial arts and mysticism, Shadow's Rise is the first book of the Chronicles of the Fists, an epic trilogy recounting Yip's adventures against all odds.

From the Author:

I started the Chronicles of the Fists story arch with a simple question, "What if we lived in a world where our beliefs were real, tangible, and actualizable?"

So often characters in fantasies live in rich worlds full of marvels but they see and interact with the world just like you and me. I wanted to try something different. I wanted to create a story where the universe was alive with the beauty, wonder and magic of a unique point of view, where the main character sees and feels the currents that shape his perception and understanding, the radiant energy of life and magic flowing all around. Blending Eastern mysticism with Western fantasy, I wanted to explore the mind of an otherworldly martial ascetic, to share the experience of magic and belief made real.

The
Chronicles of the Fists trilogy is the outcome of this effort. I have lived with the books' characters and their stories over the past several years and hope they bring as much pleasure to you as they have for me!

From the Inside Flap:

A decade in the making, the Chronicles of the Fists trilogy brings to life a dazzling fantasy epic of good and evil, triumph and adversity, hope and humor, and the exploration of the possible. 
 
Shadow's Rise
Yip Chi Chuan must flee as the only home he has ever known, the ancient monastery of the Priests of K'un Lun, is destroyed by a newly ascendant extradimensional evil. Cast out and alone, Yip strikes out on a quest spanning the breadth of his home world of Ea'ae and into the greater macroverse beyond in an attempt to unseat an all-consuming Darkness rooted in his once vaunted order's distant past.
 
Shadow's Descent
Their world assaulted by an extradimensional invasion of life-devouring Shadow, Yip and his companions must find a way to halt the incursion before the Cabal and their loathsome allies drain the living energies of their planet, destroying all life and potential on Ea'ae.
 
Lords of Light
Continually harried by agents of Darkness, their quest to restore the seals ensuring Ea'ae's safety from extradimensional incursion not yet complete, Yip, Aroganji, Wrindanneth, and Slate race against the Cabal to secure their world's future.
 
A blend of Western fantasy and Eastern martial arts and mysticism, the Chronicles of the Fists is an epic trilogy recounting Yip's adventures against all odds.
