Li Ming is a small-town boy with big dreams.
In the era of the Five States and Ten Corporations, the immortals of the jianghu stand head and shoulders above the masses. Li Ming aspires to join their ranks.
But the world of the rivers and lakes is fraught with peril. Deception and danger lurk in the shadows. Bloodthirsty beasts roam the wilds. Martial cultivators constantly battle for wealth, glory and status.
Armed with his ancestral swordbreaker, Li Ming enters the jianghu as a biaohang, eager to deliver justice with steel and magic—and to chase the dream of immortality.
But first, he must prove himself worthy.
After a successful crowdfunding campaign, Book1 of Saga of the Swordbreaker, DAWN OF THE BROKEN SWORD, is available for preorder on Amazon!
DAWN OF THE BROKEN SWORD is a coming-of-age story of a young man who seeks to walk the way of the warrior. In a world of greed, deception and naked materialism, he must discover what it truly means to be a cultivator—and to understand the true meaning of immortality.
This story is not a power fantasy. It is not a LitRPG / GameLit story. It is not a harem story. It doesn’t have any explicit sexual content. It has few of the tropes traditionally associated with so-called ‘cultivation’ stories. That’s because the series is founded on actual cultivation practices: on the Buddhist and Daoist meditation methods and metaphysical principles that inspired what is now called ‘cultivation’ fiction.
DAWN OF THE BROKEN SWORD will be live on Amazon on 12 May. Pre-order it here now!
