Book Description

Road bike racing rules in this action-packed adventure perfect for cycling fans, readers of the popular Five Ancestors series, and anyone who loves a fast-paced page-turner.
Ryan Vanderhausen is psyched. After his mountain biking disaster, he discovers that his size and strength make him a natural for road bike racing. So he and his friends Phoenix, Jake, and Hú Dié head to California to train with Ryan’s cousin Peter. But right away, things get weird. Experienced cyclists are dropping dead, and someone from the kids’ past pays them a very unwelcome visit. Then Peter is kidnapped in the middle of San Francisco’s Chinatown. Can the kids save Peter, evade the bad guys, and still manage to compete in their biggest race yet?

From the Hardcover edition.

Originally purchased for son but we have now all read series. So clever how the author has brought up to date but still involving previous characters. Love the way it is from a different persons view.

3.0 out of 5 stars For Kung Fu and Cycling Lovers 15 Feb. 2014
By SBB - Published on
Lion by Jeff Stone combines cycling with a Chinese theme. Ryan is the main character in the story. He is a cyclist that is hurt and he starts to take a Chinese medicine called Dragon Bone to help him heal and relieve stress. The bad guys want some of this Dragon Bone medicine because they believe they can live longer by taking it. Ryan's friends help protect him from the bad guys. Jake is nicknamed Hyena because he is sly, swift and cunning. Phoenix and Hu Die teach Ryan Kung Fu so that he can be stronger and protect himself. My favorite character is Hu Die because when she bumps fists with someone, they think she has iron under her gloves.

The beginning of the book is a little slow but the last few chapters are action packed and awesome. I recommend this book to kids of all ages who love Kung Fu and Cycling.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fun series, enjoyable to read 28 April 2015

Format:Kindle Edition
This is a fun series about bike racing with some intrigue thrown in about an extremely dangerous, mythical substance called dragon's bone. I enjoyed getting to know the 2nd young teenager as he fought the negative effects of the dragon's bone that his uncle had forced on him in the 1st book of this series. The friendships forged in the earlier book grow stronger in this new book. I really enjoyed reading it and can't wait to read the next book, JACKAL.

This is a great book and I think it ties in fantasy and something we all do, biking. I personally met Mr. Stone, and I think it was well written, and he is a great author.
