Dragon Tomb is the first book of a history/science fiction pentalogy, The Last Resistance. It tells a story of a young Chinese archaeologist who saves the world from Armageddon during World War II.
Archaeologist Chuan-Jay Hoo grows up in the Village of Longevity, Southeast China. In 1937, he returns to defend his country against Japanese invasion right after receiving his PhD from Boston University.
Two years later, Chuan-Jay is captured in a behind-enemy-lines rescue mission. As a POW, he is forced to take part in the excavation of the tomb of the mythical First King of China in the Dragon Mountains.
Unexpectedly, this top-secret tomb raid is violently defeated by a ruthless killing force sealed within the tomb. Astonished by their alien-like fire power, Chuan-Jay begs them to fight for the freedom of China, but they refuse, citing a more pressing mission to accomplish.
Eighteen months later, Chuan-Jay teams up with an American adventurer and archaeologist, Dr. Harry Jones, who taught archaeology in Connecticut. The duo return to the tomb and successfully convinces the guardians of the tomb to come out and fight for China. With the help of those guardians, the Allies prepare for an all-out counter offense to end the war in Pacific by the spring of 1944. However, the subsequent changes of events catch everyone on Earth by surprise. Neither the Allies nor the Axis find themselves winning the war. Before long, Chuan-Jay stands alone in the tomb of the First King again, as the last line of resistance for the survival of mankind.
How will the fate of mankind be decided?
