Evil doesn't just happen. Sometimes, the reasons are upbringing or environmental or genetic. When we encounter it, we ask, "Why? How?"
Cruelty, murder and torture are the hallmarks of Chin, a ruthless Asian criminal kingpin.
How did Chin become like this? After all, he was a disciple of one of most-respected Shaolin grandmasters in the world. What turned him? More importantly, will anyone be able to stop him?
With cold, unblinking precision, Evil Rises takes you all the way inside the beginnings of this icy criminal empire. This prequel novella sets the stage for the Noah Reid series, packed with breath-taking thrills and international adventures from secret monasteries in China to the vibrancy of New York.
Pretty Cool Beginning
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I'd recommend this to my friends who love movies like Kill Bill, and the tv show Into The Badlands. There was a lot of action, coming from the Mob Boss perspective.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I wasn't really able to form a relationship to the characters to develop a favorite. Not because it wasn't a good story, but because it was a short story. There really wasn't time, with three lead characters to keep up with.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
The narrator was the only issue I had. His voice didn't do the story much justice. Someone else needs to read it.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, I listened to this story all in one sitting. I was on a short, road trip and it fit near perfectly.
