Liang Kai used to be a hero, a champion, a renowned and admired martial artist, a decorated warrior and master, and a complete man in balance with himself and with the universe. But that was before. Now, Liang Kai is a man on a downward spiral to his own personal hell, a fallen warrior struggling to redeem himself, a monk in search of enlightenment.
His only hope is that the blood of the wicked will be enough to cleanse the blood of the innocent that stains both his hands and his soul. And to this end, Liang Kai puts all his skill as a master of the 72 Shaolin Techniques at the service of the helpless and of his own redemption.
