Twelve-year-old Fu and his temple brothers Malao, Seh, Hok, and Long don’t know who their parents were. Raised from infancy by their grandmaster, they think of their temple as their home and their fellow warrior monks—their “temple brothers”—as their family. Then one terrible night, the temple is destroyed. Fu and his brothers are the only survivors. Charged by their grandmaster to uncover the secrets of their past, the five flee into the countryside and go their separate ways. Book #1 follows Fu as he struggles to find out more and prove himself in the process.

    " Fighting (Martial Arts) became tiresome for me. Can understand why it is so popular in my middle school. Interesting plot laid out for the next books in series for people who are into it. Know a couple of grown people (husband of counselor in my school is one) who enjoy the series. "
