Klappentext

With his last breath, China's First Emperor, Q'in She Huang, entrusts his followers with a sacred task. Scenes intricately carved into a narwhal tusk show the future of a city "at the Bend in the River,” and The Emperor's chosen three—his favourite concubine, head Confucian, and personal bodyguard —must bring these prophecies to life by passing their traditions on for generations. Centuries later, the descendents of the Emperor's chosen confidantes observe as Shanghai is invaded by opium traders and missionaries from Europe, America, and the Middle East. Of them all, two families—locked in a rivalry that will last for generations—will be central to the evolution of the city. As history marches on, locals and foreign interlopers clash and intertwine; their combined fates shaping what will become the centrepiece of the new China—Shanghai.
