Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Human and demon, heaven and hell, battle for the fate of the world . . .
The demons that could control stones and elementals have been defeated, but the most powerful of Simon Wong’s associates still remains to create almost undetectable copies of humans and Shen. This demon allies with Kitty Kwok to prepare a torturous trap for Emma and Simone, from which they may never return.
Wudang Mountain is enveloped by dark foreboding as Xuan Wu begins to reappear—sometimes human, sometimes turtle, but always without memory.
Emma and Simone are in a race against time as they try to rescue Xuan Wu . . . before the demons capture him.

He put one hand on the side of her head and concentrated; she remained rigid with fear as he studied her. ‘Demons are demons and they don’t have a real life at all,’ he said. ‘Even if they choose to turn and pursue the Way, they’re not worth anything.’ He snapped back, then waved Er Hao forward. She knelt and he touched her head as well, then released her. ‘They’re not copies. They’re nothing special. No programming.’ He glanced up at me. ‘How were you
and his eyes glowed in the darkness. ‘What about me? Don’t I get a say in the matter? You promised me, Emma. Don’t go back on your word.’ ‘I will do my damnedest to get him to drain you, if that’s what you want.’ He looked down at his lap. ‘That’s all I want.’ I tapped his knee. ‘Now come on up into the sunshine and be with the people who love you.’ ‘There’s something big coming, Emma.’ His eyes unfocused. ‘Can’t you sense it?’ ‘Yes,’ I said. ‘Probably not as well as you can, though.’
Way,’ Judge Pao said. ‘I stand by my judgement. If I found all fine, strong, smart people Worthy, Heaven would collapse under the weight of them.’ ‘What about me?’ I said. His expression softened slightly. ‘We shall see when it is time for you to be Judged.’ ‘I hope I never am.’ ‘Madam,’ he said, pushing the papers aside, ‘so do I.’ Simone came charging through the courtroom doors, dragging with her the demon guards, who were attempting to stop her, one on each arm.
