I finished reading The Gravity Engine by Kylie Chan. It is a stand-alone book of the martial arts fantasy book series I just read. This book is supposed to be read after Demon Child and before Black Jade.
Big Warning: there is some violence.
In this book, Michael is seeing Clarissa every day, but she wouldn’t talk to him. So the doctor told him not to see her as much and she will come around. He gets bored at work and his brother comes to say he can go out hunting with him. So he does with a small crew. They find an interesting cave that does have snake demons, but in the end, some of the fighters get killed and Michael is taken. The son of the Demon King wants Michael to make a pact with him to destroy the Demon King and the son will take over. Michael has no choice in agreeing to the pact. He is taken to the Western Heavens. He finds out the Demon King has his mother and Clarissa. (They are demon copies and poor Michael finds out the hard way that they are.) The Demon Kings are using them as bait so Michael would make a blueprint of a gravity machine and also make the machine itself. The Gravity machine is supposed to help anyone that comes to Western Heavens to stay on the ground. Michael does make the blueprint. He tries to free the demon copies but ends up killing them instead. In shock and sadness, he kills himself and lands in Court Ten back at home. He didn’t make the machine. He tells the Jade Emperor and his father that he didn’t learn much. He didn’t tell them about the demon copies. He told them he didn’t have the blueprint and he was a failure. (IMO I think they should have looked into his memories to get what the blueprint looked like.) Then he sees Clarissa again and they are talking to each other again.
I sorta liked this book. Now I’m reading Scales of the Empire by Kylie Chan. It is the first book of a space dragon book series.
I finished reading Black Jade by Kylie Chan. This book is part of a martial arts fantasy book series and the last book of that book series. She has written nine books of the books series. She is writing a new book for the series and it will be out soon. She also wrote a dragon book series that I would to read.
Big Warning: there is some violence and some sad parts.
In this book, after the war ended. The demon King took over the Heavens. He killed all the Shen and imprisoned John in the jade cage again. Emma and her family were spared. Simone was spared too. But Emma’s nephew was killed by human soldiers that the Demon King controlled. The Demon King had made him into clones, but the clones were too aggressive so Emma’s sister agreed to have copies destroyed later on. Simone and Emma went to a safe place on Earthly to escape, but they had to get rid of their phones because of tracking. They found somewhere safe until the Demon King asked Emma to come to take Frankie, Emma’s son, to the Heavens so he can be taught how to be the Jade Emperor. While there Gold put BJ (Black Jade) in Emma so she can be able to talk to her family without the Demon King. It was later found out that BJ was working for the Demon King’s son!! Frankie becomes the Jade Emperor and everyone obeys him. Even Emma at some points. The Demon King was wanting to make Simone and Frankie marry. Emma tried to stop it from happening, but Simone wouldn’t talk to her. The Demon King also wanted to sacrifice himself to make John become different and destroy Frankie. But Simone had other plans. She killed the Demon King and saved everyone. The Jade Emperor came back to be on the throne. The Demon King’s son becomes the next Demon King. There was a new treaty and the heavens were rebuilt. But BJ (Black Jade) disappeared. In order to draw her out, Emma and John had their wedding (Finally). They had some encounters with some demon copies and they were destroyed. The wedding did bring Black Jade out, and Emma married Black Jade, but Emma realized and she called out to John and John took out the demon copy. The real wedding happened. They all decided to live on Earthly since Simone couldn’t go to the Heavens.
I sorta liked this book. Now I’m reading a graphic novel called Small Shen by Kylie Chan. It’s the prequel to the martial arts book series.

Big Warning: there is some violence and gross parts.
In this book, John gets injured badly by the Demon King torturing the serpent. The Blue Dragon suggests putting him in another jade cage to see if it heals him. It works. They find out that Demon King wants to take over Hell. So they fight and John gets injured again. They also lose the battle and many lives are lost. The Demon King tries to make a deal with John, but they refuse it. So Demon King revises the treaty and wants Emma and John to come to get the new treaty. Everyone thinks that Emma will die during this meeting. But she doesn’t because her son saves her. (Yes I was right. She didn’t lose her baby in the previous book.) John is injured again. Emma finds out that their former housekeeper had died and she goes to her funeral and goes back to hell. The Demon King wants her to teach her son. So she does and she tries to find the serpent. Simone rescues her. They find the serpent. Simone gets badly injured so Emma gives her the Elixir and raises Simone. Then Emma frees the serpent by possessing the serpent. Emma joins with John only so she can free from the serpent. So they take back Hell, but then Demon King wants to take down the Heavens too. So they win the battle at the gates, but then the demons go to the West so Michael kills all the demons there. Emma and John meet with the Jade Emperor who kills Emma so she will be raised and John raises her as promised. Everything is quiet until a phoenix comes to warn about the Demon King has attacked again.

Big Warning: there is some gross parts and one “sad” part.
In this book, Emma, John, Simone, and three others went to Wales to find out about Emma’s heritage. They find out that she is from a serpent people who were made by gods to help destroy the Romans. The problem is that the serpent people accidentally kill John and Emma gets kidnapped by the Demon King of both the West and East. They want to take over the world. George aka Kitty Kwork wants to have Emma’s kids. Before she was kidnapped, Emma discovers she is pregnant. She “loses” the baby and George takes some of her ovaries again. (I sorta think George lied to Emma saying the baby is dead.) John goes crazy and goes to the West Heaven, but ends up going back home to find the Mountain has been attacked by some poisoned insects. But then the gateways are closed to the Western Heavens. John does find a way and he rescues Emma. The elixir is ready for Emma to take for her to be raised to be immortal like John.

Big Warning: there is some violence and some sad parts.
In this book, Emma keeps getting feelings and short visions of impending doom. But she and the others don’t know exactly what the doom is. They think there will be hundreds of demons outside of the Academy. They discuss who will help bring John back. Leo tries to volunteer, but they end up picking two generals instead. So one of the generals brings back John. John tells them that there are fake students in the academy who will explode if they know everyone knows. In the end, they lose a lot of students. Then Emma’s nephews go missing. They raided every research building that “Kitty Kwok” was at. Emma thought her nephews were at one building and let her be taken. She was given more demon essence and her memory wiped. But she had been wrong her nephews wasn’t there. The police found out the passport was fake and she almost went to prison until a police officer that used to haunt her saved her. John restored some of her memory, but the Jade Emperor restored her memory. They found out where Kitty’s hideout was. They found Emma’s nephews and Michael’s girlfriend (who was thought dead). They were tortured badly. Simone also gets poisoned and John helps her by slicing off his arm. Then Emma’s parents and sisters decide to change their name and go into hiding. She won’t be able to see her parents again. Then Simone goes missing. They find her and she was drugged. Emma gets radiation poisoning. They take Kitty to see the Demon King as promised. They lead her to the jade cage. This is where they find out Kitty was all along the Demon King. (plot twist which I sorta guessed) Emma almost died and John’s serpent appeared and healed Emma. Then Emma killed John and the demon king let her go. The Jade Emperor thought maybe the Demon King had put something inside her to change her somehow. Emma lets them see if he did. And he did. John got rid of the thing that made her less fearful and has a death wish. But now the Demon King is torturing John’s serpent.

In this book, Emma is looking for answers on how to get the demon essence out of her and what she really is. John had told her to go to see Na Wu who lives high up on a mountain. She does and she almost dies. Na Wu gives no help. All she tells Emma is to find out her ancestry. Then she goes to the Three Puries and they give her a solution, but it disappears a minute later. They do give her a white stone which kills demons. She chooses to use it in a fight and the demon king takes away the demon essence so she can use the white stone. But when she uses it, she is kidnapped and given more demon essence. Then a jealous military guard tries to prove to everyone who Emma really is and makes her into a full-blown demon. John tries to save her, but she becomes his slave instead. They make a pact with the demon king to give him Kitty Kwonk who started the whole mess in exchange that he will take away Emma’s demon essence. She almost dies until John’s serpent heals her.
I loved this book. Now I’m reading Heaven to Wudang Journey to Wudang Book 3 by Kylie Chan.
Note: I had planned on watching another movie, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. So I decided to watch this movie instead. This week’s movie is White Snake. It is an animated movie. It has Vincent Rodriguez III, Matthew Moy, Stephanie Sheh, Lydia Look, James Sie, Faye Mata, Vivian Lu, and Karen Huie in it.
Big Warning: there is a very sad part. Have tissues ready. There is also some violence.
This movie is based on a fable of a human man who falls in love with a white snake demon. She is an assassin who is hired to kill the general because he is eating snakes to feed his evil power. She gets caught and she runs for her life. Then she wakes up in a patch of grass. She doesn’t remember who she is, or what she has done. A man had rescued her. He is a snake catcher, but he is actually afraid of snakes. lol. He wants to be a doctor instead. They eventually fall in love. Then she remembers who she is and what she has done. In the end, the general and the snake queen are killed at a very huge stake.
Even though I hated the very sad part, I loved the movie. I didn’t know there is a sequel so I watching it next week. It is called White Snake II: The Tribulation of the Green Snake.
Last week I watched Master of The Shadowless Kick. I had taped it when it was on Cinemax. It is based on the real-life story of Wong Kei-Ying. It has Sun Haoran, Zhou Xiaofei, Chen Zhihui, Jiang Mingyang, Yang Liao, Hou Xu, and Xie Ning in it.
Warning: there is some violence, three sad parts, and some drug use.
In this movie, Wong Kei-Ying is a martial artist and a physician. His wife dies while running away from some masked men who were targeting a martial artist. The governor makes a statement about getting rid of opium houses and cleaning up the neighborhoods. Wong Kei-Ying notices the governor hurt his leg and decides to treat him. But it is later revealed that the governor and his men were the masked men. The martial artist that was targeted was Wong Kei-Ying’s master who has the knowledge of the shadowless kick. The governor had the master in a dungeon. Wong Kei-Ying was called to look after the prisoner. Instead, he rescues his master, but he fails to heal him. Wong Kei-Ying had a project on trying to make a drug to help people that have opium addiction. Then the governor takes over the opium trade and calls on Wong Kei-Ying to get him to make a strong high for the opium. He refuses and the governor kidnaps his kid. Wong Kei-Ying kills the governor.
I sorta liked this movie.
I had said that Chris had brought a movie for us to watch together. It was The Last Dragon. It has Taimak, Vanity, Christopher Murney, Julius Carry, Leo O’Brien, and Faith Prince in it.
Big Warning: there is some violence.
In this movie, a guy named Leroy is a martial artist. He is given a mission to find a wise one to continue his training. While on that mission, he helps a woman who gets kidnapped by a video game producer. He learns the mission wasn’t really real, but he finds out the strength is in himself.
I think I had seen some of this movie before. I did like the movie.
