Publisher's Summary

A martial artist falls from a cliff to his death. A rival stands, triumphant above.

The beginning of an all too familiar story. Yet, in the time of recuperation and return, time passes and sometimes, the transformation that occurs is not the one you expect.

This is a 4,500-word short story set in the A Thousand Li universe featuring as yet to be seen characters in the universe. Does not need to be listened to to follow the main series.

Different form, different characters, poetic feel

I'd expected a short novel. I got a flashes of a life, almost painted, almost poetic in feeling. Beautiful.

Favorite short of his

Cute, and realistic in a way, good character progress in a very short story.

Beautiful!

This story encompasses fresh elements, perspectives and ideas that demonstrate Tao Wong’s personal depth (growth?). There is perhaps as much to learn in this little story as in any of his longer works: maturity, wisdom, circumspection, forgiveness, strength, sacrifice and the deeper meanings of life and love.

Bravo!

a thousand Li needs a thousand books

this short story may ask of you to play back a few of the paragraph So that you can follow the transitions in time but the subject matter works well and you have to remember that it it is a short story.
