JEREMY WANG, an astrophysicist completing his PhD at Cambridge, discovers a clue to the secret location of an ancient tomb sealed with the deaths of all 700,000 labourers and artisans who built it. The tomb is the final resting place of QIN SHI HUANG; the bloody-thirsty tyrant who forged a new empire from the ashes of six ancient kingdoms in 220BC. The empire that bears his name to this day; Qin’a, pronounced in English as China.
Terrified of the fate awaiting him in the afterlife, Qin Shi Huang combined the emerging science of alchemy with the deepest secrets of Taoist lore to create the Elixir of Life.
The Emperor was tricked into drinking too deeply and fell into torpor. And so he waits in his hidden tomb; the apex of an entire civilization’s art, science, and magic.
Helping Jeremy to unravel the riddle and find the lost tomb are:
BRETT EAST; ex-college roommate and professional gambler who owes Jeremy a big favour
DR SAFFIYAH HALCYONE; aloof and lovely Egyptian archaeologist with a controversial academic theory
JIN; Saffiyah’s trusted family friend and guide.
The tomb will be found. Mind games, magic, and supernatural creatures will be countered with science, cunning, and luck. Will they survive? Will they succeed?
Fans of 80s action adventure cinema; ‘Big Trouble in Little China’ and the Indiana Jones series will love To Conquer Heaven. A similar title is Kylie Chan’s ‘Dark Heavens’.
