Among Heroes, Lu Bu; Among Horses, Red Hare
The Han Empire is falling. Mighty warlords raise up, vying for control to claim the ultimate glory of establishing China’s next great dynasty. It is a time of cunning villains and great heroes, of beautiful temptresses and brutal tyrants. One man stands above them all—Lu Bu, the mighty warrior, riding on Red Hare, the horse of legend that can run a thousand li. All who challenge him on the battlefield fall before his great halberd; his mighty bow has ended wars with a single shot. But will his might and courage alone be enough to win an empire and determine the future of all China?
