Series: Cotton Malone (#5)
A very short ebook-only prequel to 'The Emperor's Tomb' -- a thriller surrounding the tomb of China’s First Emperor, which is guarded by an underground army of terracotta warriors.
Enjoyable short story that acts as a lead up or side story for The Emporer's Tomb. I'd say that this short is essentially only for the fans of the Cotton Malone series, as this story needs the larger world of the series to make much sense. Fortunately I'm a fan and enjoyed this outing with Cassiopei...
This is a prequel to The Emperor's Tomb and the subject was interesting but honestly I'm not too fond of these short adventures stories between books. Too few pages, when you get into the story it’s over.
I really really wish I had read this before I read The Emperor's Tomb... some of the things there would have made much more sense. So if you do want to read The Emperor's Tomb, read this first!
