The Warrior Monk
The Order of the Three Spears. Founded at the turn of the ninth century by the Lotus-Born Second Buddha and inspired by the most powerful immortal warrior who ever lived, this secret buddhist society has kept the existence of immortals hidden from ordinary humans and maintained peace between the races for twelve hundred years. When news of an ancient enemy reaches them from the West, the Order sends its best and most unorthodox field agent to investigate. In the course of his mission, Brother Yonten crosses paths with an immortal operative also tasked with hunting the Order’s deadly opponent. The astounding truths he uncovers will determine not just his own fate, but that of the immortal societies and the entire human race.

Frustrated at every turn, an unexpected visit from Conrad’s superior results in a surprising addition to his team. Can the captain resist his all-consuming attraction for immortal Laura Hartwell long enough to solve the mystery of the gunpowder plot?
