The Three Kingdoms is the epic saga of loyalty and treachery, brotherhood and rivalry—and the deeds of legendary heroes and villains during one of the most tumultuous periods in Chinese history. This classic tale of brotherhood and rivalry, loyalty and treachery, victory and death will appeal as much to modern readers of Game of Thrones as it did to its original Chinese readers over 500 years ago.

The story of the struggles of Liu Bei and his allies against the treacherous attempts of Cao Cao to steal away the throne as the Han Dynasty comes to a close have captivated readers for many centuries. This third volume concludes the tale of Liu Bei and his sworn brothers-inarms Zhang Fei and Guan Yu, whose loyalty and fidelity are sorely tested in a society which is in flux and at war for its very survival.
