Summary

Two Epic Storytellers and a Clash of Ancient Cultures 

A novel of spiritual warfare, dragons, the first Chinese emperor, the Great Wall of China and the tower of Babel.   

Brian Godawa, best-selling author of ancient historical fantasy, teams up with Charlie Wen, co-founder/Head of Visual Development for Marvel Studios, to tell a fantasy action-adventure romance rooted in the ancient history of China and the Bible.   

East Eats West 

It’s 220 BC. The ancient Western Empire is crumbling.    

In a desperate bid to save his throne, the Greek king over Babylon sends his son, Antiochus, a dishonored warrior, into the mysterious land of the Far East to capture a mythical creature that will give him absolute power: a dragon.   

What Antiochus finds is beyond his imagination: A mad emperor on a quest of immortality, a beautiful concubine with whom he falls in love, a mysterious power of magic and technology, and the true nature of the dragon that protects this world.   

The Dragon King is the first novel of the historical fantasy series, Chronicles of the Watchers that charts the influence of spiritual powers behind the history of earthly rulers.

Always great stories woven within Bible facts.

This series has been a real eye opener for me. I have recommended these books to those who hunger to know the truth. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to the 2nd Chronicles.

Awesome

I’ve had the pleasure of reading all of Brian‘s books. For me this was probably one of his best. I listen to it on audible and was glued to it for two days straight. I absolutely love the twist with the magi. Would highly recommend this book and would highly recommend anybody discovering all of Brian Godawa books you will not regret it.

Chapter is out of order

Chapter 35 is out of order and makes listening to this book slightly difficult. I thoroughly enjoy the story, but please fix this misalignment

Amazing

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The complex and exciting action. Performace has vitality and thrust. The Dragan King gives to me a deep appreciation of a time far from us yet, it shows the continuing human struggle which is timeless.

What other book might you compare The Dragon King: First Emperor of China to and why?

The extensive knowledge of the time. Vivid.

Have you listened to any of Brian Godawa’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Consistently energetic.

If you could rename The Dragon King: First Emperor of China, what would you call it?

Good name!

Any additional comments?

I what more!

Amazing!

You'll be inspired and entranced by this book. It was truly a great experience listening to Brian. It takes me back to the narrations he has done with his Chronicles of the Nephilim. I will be recommending you to reading this over some of his past books first. You won't regret it.
