Li Chen has memories of a past life in which she was a female Taoist warrior of high esoteric self-cultivation. In this poetic short story she draws upon the power she finds within herself to fight herself free of the oppression that her traditional society imposes upon her gender.
Daughter of Xiu is for those who enjoy a mystical story written not in colloquial form but in poetic metre, meaning the sentence structure is based on phonetic harmony. This book will teach the meaning of stillness, and reveals how the ancient Taoist mystics of China read the secrets of nature.

Aviilokín K'shi presents the literary world with a stunning piece of work. Daughter of Xiu carries all of the hallmarks of classic narrative poetry. The rhetorical device of parallelism is employed with exceptional skill and the allegory that runs for the entirety of the story dances between transcendent experiences and the reality of daily living.

In the deep of the night, Na'kar Runelayer finds a small flickering diamond hidden in the silvern light of the moon, a diamond that he will come to know as the Seventh Tear. An ancient solemn vow awakens from within his heart — a vow he has made before he was ever born. He begins his wandering in the wild...

Lions of Virtue is a meditative journey that reveals spiritual wisdom with every step, an expression of the Taoist way of being that the author remembers of his former lifetimes devoted to this ancient form of Chinese mysticism. This book will be appreciated by those who have an appetite for spirituality, ancientry, mythology, and poetry. The poetic metre of Lions of Virtue is inspired by the author's spiritual Stillness.

Lions of Virtue is a contemplative vision on the the mystical state of being at one with Tao, the eternal "Way" cultivated for millennia by Taoist mystics in the mountains of ancient China. Rather than trying to explain the "Way that cannot be spoken", in the silent heart of the oldest most esoteric teaching in the East, the author illustrates these ancient precepts in a fictional tale written in rhythmic prose with elements of Early-modern English, a phonetic device that works well here. Lions of Virtue is also a parable for our times of the long running battle between the forces of the Dark and the Light that is now looming in our world.
