Preview: Pat Lee's Widow Warriors

Mon, December 12th, 2011 at 6:58am PST

A thousand years ago, the rugged frontier border of the great Chinese Empire was being attacked by a powerful enemy known as the Liao. A fiercely-patriotic clan of Chinese warriors – commanded by male members of one family -- the Yang -- heroically held their ground to the last man.

The widows of the men pleaded with the embattled Emperor to send reinforcements. But none came. Incensed, the women – a few hundred strong and many themselves seasoned warriors – set off on a mission of revenge.

But the enemy was formidable. Before soldiers even crossed swords, the Liao conjured up everything to throw at the Widow Warriors: deadly tornadoes, zombie fighters, fearsome beasts, treacherous spies and powerful sorcery.

Down to but a few dozen, facing overwhelming odds and battling the demons within themselves, the Widow Warriors arrived for the final showdown at the nearly impregnable enemy fortress at Black Wind Mountain.
