*Both eBook and Audiobook
I had no idea this wasn't a full novel, but a prequel. I gave it a go anyway, but I was sorta bummed. It reminded me of the old movies on Kung Fu Theater, that I used to watch on the USA cable channel, back int he day.
Am I showing my age?
Anyway, Evil Rises, by Wesley Robert Lowe is about the rise of an empire based on Shaolin beliefs. Sadly, Chin took the teachings of Master Wu and became a Chinese Kingpin, but that's not really what this introduction to the Noah Reid series is about.
It gives background, history to what made Chin what he was. How he found a teacher and a family, who offered the best of Shaolin tradition and corrupted it. He became what Master Wu detested most. The short story shared a lot of information that will be necessary for the following three novels.
I can tell you, this story will have you riveted. Though I found a bit predictable, I have a feeling I'll be grabbing the other books. This was good and with later, listening to Lowe read the story through Audible, I found myself still happy with the storyline. The audio is a bit annoying and he doesn't have the best voice for the story, but Cheers to this guy!
