Mud and mire shall birth a tree,
A sprout shall grow of ancient seed.
The five unite to break the one,
The curse of man shall be undone.
But brothers rise ere dragon’s bane.
The last shall smite the first again.
Orphaned at a young age, thirteen-year-old Song Wei has grown up listening to his grandfather recite legends of the distant past. But it is his own history Song seeks to uncover to guide him toward the future, particularly the events surrounding his parents’ deaths. But that is a secret closely guarded by his grandfather. Then Song discovers an heirloom that links him to an ancient prophecy. His destiny lies within the old tales he has scorned. Song must follow the path that killed his father.
I do have to say that the story has a bit of a potential of turning out interesting, but I feel as if there wasn't a genuine reason for me to continue on reading I guess, in other words there wasn't a hook at the end of the first chapter. I also feel that there is too much focus on how Song feels about himself, at least in first chapter.
I'm sorry but I don't think I'll continue reading the book
