‘Fast-paced, furiously funny and utterly fantastic.’ A.F. Steadman
‘Culture and technology clash as Zachary Ying takes adventure to a new level!’ Kwame Mbalia
Percy Jackson meets Yu-Gi-Oh in this hilarious, action-packed fantasy adventure.
Zachary Ying has never had much chance to learn about his Chinese heritage. So when he’s chosen to host the spirit of the First Emperor of China for a vital mission, he is woefully unprepared. As a result, the emperor botches his attempt to possess Zack’s body and binds to his AR gaming headset instead.
With the legendary tyrant yapping in his headset, Zack must journey across China to steal magical artifacts and defeat figures from history and myth. Using his newfound water dragon powers, can Zack complete the mission in time to save the mortal world?
