The Art of Prophecy: Exclusive Edition - The War Arts Saga 1 (Hardback)Wesley Chu (author)
When a prophecy about the identity of the Chosen One is revealed to be untrue, a motley quartet of outcasts arise to try and save the kingdom in the first instalment of this scintillating epic fantasy saga.
Waterstones Exclusive Edition with sprayed edge
A Standard Edition is available here
Prophecies don’t make heroes: they only choose them. When Chosen One Jian falls short of his prophesied quest, he must find his own path to greatness.
The prophecy is clear: Wen Jian is the Chosen One, born to defeat the immortal Eternal Khan and save the kingdom. The only problem is that the prophecy is wrong.
Jian has been raised in splendor, trained by the best warriors, and celebrated before a single battle has been won. After all, he’s the chosen one, selected by prophecy to defeat the immortal god-king and free the kingdom for good. But when the prophecy is proven to be incorrect, Jian still has to find a way to succeed, and maybe even become a hero in his own right.
To save the kingdom, an unlikely band of heroes rise: Taishi, an old grandmaster who swore her days of battle were over; Sali, a warrior re-evaluating her allegiances; and Qisami, an assassin with questionable values. Together, the four embark on a journey more wondrous than any prophecy could forsee.
