The Warrior Monk (A Seventeen Series Short Story) by AD StarrlingFounded at the turn of the ninth century by the Lotus-Born Second Buddha and inspired by the most powerful immortal warrior who has ever lived, the Order of the Three Spears has kept the existence of the immortals a secret from the eyes of ordinary humans and maintained peace between the races for nearly 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 a remarkable immortal operative also tasked with hunting the enemy. What he uncovers will determine not just his own fate, but that of the Order, the immortal societies, and the human race.

The Warrior Monk is a short story linked to King’s Crusade, the second novel in AD Starrling’s award-winning action thriller series Seventeen.

THE WARRIOR MONK is available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Kobo.
