“It is a wild ride, perfect for high-energy teens who might not otherwise spend their time reading.”—VOYA

Synopsis:

According to the sacred ancient scriptures, the future emperor of China shall bear five black moles on the bottom of each foot. Eleven-year-old Luka’s mother is dead, and he doesn’t know his father, but his feet do bear the mark of the five black moles. Luka’s caretaker, a wise monk named Atami, is determined to keep Luka alive so the prophecy can be fulfilled and to train Luka in the ways of the kung fu wandering warriors. But when Atami is captured by the enemy, Luka must begin his own journey, using what Atami has taught him, to become the warrior and leader he is destined to be.
