The art of destiny : a novel / Wesley Chu.

Chu, Wesley, (author.).


Once there was a prophecy that a chosen one would rise to defeat the Eternal Khan, an immortal god-king... but it was wrong. Now Jian, the former chosen hero is trying to find his own way. He joins forces with Taishi, his grumpy grandmaster, who instructs him in the ways of her family's powerful war art. She recruits a band of elderly grandmasters out of retirement to whip him into shape. Qisami, an assassin, is on a mission to protect a powerful noblewoman from her enemies. Going undercover to complete her mission, her new identity brings her friendship, found family, and new purpose. Sali finds her clan exiled; leading the survivors in search of a new home she discovers that she's something she never thought she could be: a leader and a revolutionary. Sometimes destiny is grander than any prophecy can foresee. -- adapted from jacket
