The quest is almost a cliche in the fantasy genre. Here's one that turns the whole idea onto its ear. In search of a salvation for a village, the heroes find horror, history, humor (laugh out loud funny), and the truth that there is more then just us, there can be justice. A great read.

Many people will tell you this book is exceptionally funny -- and they will be right. Many people will tell you that this book is exceptionally breathtaking -- and they will *also* be right. This is a novel that's one part old-fashioned bedtime story, one part utterly authentic Chinese folk tale, one part Saturday afternoon movie serial (think Indiana Jones crossed with Jackie Chan crossed with "Lord of the Rings" crossed with "The Sting"), and about nine parts sheer genius.
