Jamie Reign: The Last Spirit Warrior

Tierney, PJ

This is the series for every young boy who has dreamt of living on a boat, having extraordinary adventures – and discovering he is totally awesome at kung fu!

‘… intriguing and ingenious … Jamie Reign keeps the plot bubbling and the pages turning.’ – John Flanagan, author of The Ranger’s Apprentice

Jamie Reign was born twelve years ago, on the first day of the Chinese Year of the Dragon. This supposedly auspicious start in life hasn’t been much use to him, living a loveless existence with his abusive father, Hector, on a salvage boat. Jamie’s mother Mayling died on the day he was born. When Jamie inadvertently summons some fiery orbs from the air to tackle some local bullies, he doesn’t understand that he has tapped into the Way, the universal energy source, and in doing so he sets off a chain of events with unforeseen consequences. Whisked away by the mysterious Mr Fan to the Chia Wu, a school for students with special abilities, Jamie is taken under the wing of the legendary Kung Fu Master Wu. It is believed by Master Wu and his staff that Jamie is the Last Spirit Warrior, and as such his life’s purpose is to right the dreadful wrongs (climatic and political) taking place in the world. But not everyone believes so – and Jamie himself has doubts.

What use is a Spirit Warrior who is hopeless at Kung Fu?
