THE MING STORYTELLERS - historical novel set in Ming China.

The Ming Storytellers is a historical novel set in the Early Ming Dynasty, at a time when China was in its Golden Age. It is a saga featuring a fictional concubine (Min Li) and the reknown navigator, Admiral Zheng He. The story which blends mystery, magic realism, intrigue and romance unravels in the Forbidden City, in the modern day village of Lijiang and beyond in Zanzibar. The Ming Storytellers draws on four years of research on Early Ming history with special attention to the lives of imperial concubines, eunuchs, the Zhu imperial family, the Ming secret police, international relations and world exploration in the 15th century. The narrative incorporates elements of speculative history but belongs to the newly coined Ming Gothic genre.
