Two Epic Storytellers and a Clash of Ancient Cultures

Brian Godawa, best-selling author of ancient historical fantasy, teams up with Charlie Wen, Co-founder/Head of Visual Development for Marvel Studios, to tell an action-adventure romance rooted in the ancient history and spiritual reality of China.

Written through the Watcher paradigm that was familiar to readers of Chronicles of the Nephilim.

East Eats West

It’s 220 B.C. The ancient Western Empire is crumbling.  In a desperate bid to save his throne, the Greek Seleucid king over Babylon sends his son, Antiochus, a dishonored warrior, into the mysterious land of the Far East to capture a mythical creature that will give him absolute power: a dragon.

Antiochus takes with him his longtime friend, Balthazar, a member of the Magi order of Babylon, responsible for both the religion and science of the empire. But Balthazar also carries with him a dangerous secret that could destroy Antiochus’ plans and plunge the world into chaos.

They sail beyond their maps into the mysterious and uncharted Eastern Orient. They are discovered and escorted inland to the empire of Ch’in (now known as China), ruled by the first emperor, Ch’in Shi Huang Di. The emperor is a brutal ruler and is on the edge of insanity in a mad quest to find the elixir of immortality.

Antiochus meets and falls in forbidden love with Mei Li, a beautiful concubine of the emperor. But she also harbors a secret that can bring down the mad emperor. It’s the truth of China’s spiritual past that is mysteriously connected to the ancient Tower of Babel.

And there are spiritual principalities and powers who seek to stop them all. These are the Watchers, who have their own plans to rule the world. Finding and capturing a dragon is the least of Antiochus’ difficulties in this action-adventure clash of cultures and war of gods.
