An adventure story of Chinese pirates, magicians, ghosts and treasure ships.
Chen grew up in Annam, but it was soldiers of the Chinese Emperor of the Dragon Throne who laid waste to his village and tortured and killed everyone. Chen, just twelve years old, escaped with the help of a mysterious old man. After many days march with the old man, he finds himself on a Chinese Treasure Ship, and it is then that the real adventure begins.
But the old man has already revealed that he is a magician, and there is something very strange about Chen that the boy had never known and could not have possibly imagined. His skills may be unique, and without him the Chinese ships might not survive the pirates or come close to completing their mission halfway round the world…
Then, hundreds of years later, another boy finds an ancient knife on a beach after days of searching because, somehow, he knew it was there. As if that was not enough, he and his friends are then plunged into a modern-day adventure of pirates, thieves, ghosts, and buried treasure.
