Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: SILK DRAGON is a story of adventure on the high seas, fierce battles with hostile kings and behind-the-scenes intrigue within the royal court. It's a story of competition among royal concubines, accumulation of fabulous riches and justice by the sword. SILK DRAGON is also a love story. Zheng He's childhood sweetheart, Xi Chen, is forced to become a lady-in-waiting to the imperial court. She desperately loves Zheng He and has pledged never to share herself with another man. But when Emperor Zhu Di requests that Zheng He bring Xi Chen to his private quarters, the faithful servant is forced to obey. Zheng He, Xi Chen and Emperor Zhu Di share a relationship that is both tragic and beautiful. The three are drawn together into a web of circumstance that is at the very core of China's strength and weakness. SILK DRAGON is the story of Zheng He, who, as a man of vision, satisfies the dreams of his emperor, but cannot satisfy the dreams of his own heart. It's the story of Xi Chen, the beautiful lady-in-waiting, who is torn between the man she loves and the love she knows is demanded by another man. And it's also the story of Zhu Di, the emperor who tries to build a dynasty for China, but knows he may lose everything he has ever tried to build because of his own traitorous son.
