9780985390730: Shadow's Rise: Return of the Cabal - The Chronicles of the Fists: Book 1 (Volume 1)

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.

Revised second edition edited by Ashley Davis, Priestess of K'un Lun.

Product Description:

In a world where beliefs are real, actualized by will, expressed by intent, Yip Chi Chuan, a young martial and spiritual ascetic, flees 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 own quest may fail before it ever begins.

Unfazed by his own 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 Eastern mysticism and Western fantasy, 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!
