The widows of the clan pleaded with the Emperor, whose own court had become weakened by corruption and greed, to send reinforcements. But none came ......
Book 1: Soon, the last remaining Yang soldiers were overwhelmed by a sea of bloodthirsty invaders. Distraught and incensed, the Yang widows ― a few hundred strong and many of whom also seasoned warriors ― took arms and set off to the western border. But even before reaching the enemy, the journey itself would be fraught with peril. In their determination to avenge the deaths of their loved ones, the Widow Warriors would face the full fury of nature’s most destructive forces, a vast enemy army with sorcery and monsters on its side, and perhaps most powerful of all, the demons within themselves!
Book 2: Magic, Monsters & Misery - On the mission to avenge the deaths of their husbands and brothers, the Widow Warriors find themselves in a hostile and foreboding realm.
