When beasts swarm the Central Plains, the city-state of Yudu issues a call for aid. Martial cultivators from across Xiazhou descend on Yudu, chasing dreams of wealth and glory. Among them is Li Ming and his fellow biaohang from Dayong.

Shattered by recent losses, Dayong needs to rebuild their reputation, earn much-needed revenue and expand their influence. But when they arrive, what was supposed to be a straightforward beast hunt spirals out of control.

Old foes and new enemies crawl out of the woodwork. The beasts themselves are acting strangely. And from the shadows comes a plot to overturn the world of the rivers and lakes.

Surrounded by chaos and conspiracy, Li Ming and his allies must plunge into the fray and unmask those who seek to become the Lord of Beasts.


LORD OF BEASTS is live on Amazon!

Saga of the Swordbreaker is a cyberpunk cultivation series, a collision of the past and the future, a synthesis of the ancient and the cutting edge, the cynicism of cyberpunk meshed with the idealism of the rivers and lakes. Previously in DAWN OF THE BROKEN SWORD, Li Ming worked to prove himself as a biaohang. Now he begins to see the true nature of the world of the Five States and Ten Corporations—and glimmers of the true antagonist of the series.
