" Exiled from the mysterious Lands Born from Smoke and Sacrifice, which had been magically formed from the lost lore of Imperial China, seven men and six women declare themselves the Thirteen Orphans. Each Orphan is mystically connected to one of the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac with the multifaceted Cat as thirteenth.
"Now, a century later, rivals from the Lands have come to Earth to lay claim to the Orphans' powers. When battles in the Lands leave them stranded in modern California, these rivals are forced into a reluctant alliance with those they had hunted.
"The leaders of the two groups - Pearl Bright, the Tiger, and Righteous Drum, the Dragon - find that their age and wisdom provide a solid foundation for a working partnership. Yet mutual suspicion persists. Complicating matters, Flying Claw, the Lands' young Tiger, is at the nexus of a romantic triangle, pursued by both Honey Dream, the beautiful but unpredictable Snake, and Brenda Morris, the Rat's heir - a young woman who despite her 'in waiting' status seems to have some of the Rat's powers.
" An attack that severely injures several of the Thirteen Orphans and their allies provides a harsh reminder that the Nine Gates must be opened as quickly as possible, before the civil war casting the Lands into turmoil claims Earth as a new battleground..." ; Signed by Author
