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?
About the Author
PJ Tierney grew up in the Blue Mountains where every day was an adventure. When PJ left school she enrolled at the University of Wollongong in the Creative Arts Department and majored in Writing. It was there she discovered the magic of theatre and producing concerts became her goal, and to quote PJ:
‘I have worked with some of the world’s biggest artists. I sat in the truss beside Madonna as she descended on her mirror ball, I executed the world’s worst follow spot cue for U2, and for the Eagles I was responsible for a pin spot pickup so precise it made the Lighting Designer applaud. I’ve been pushed aside by Elton John’s security and was called ‘babe’ by B.B. King.’
Following this came a stint working on the production of the Hong Kong Handover Celebrations. It was while in Hong Kong that PJ spent time in the world where the real Jamie lived, and so it was the story grew and came alive.
