Product Description

THE SECOND BOOK IN THE JADE OWL SERIES.

The world is on the brink, now that the relics flow together again. The new China Hands should have left the Jade Owl in the tomb, to fester silently for another age, but they didn't. Now there is a tapping in the basement and a flowering of new relics, all seeking to move Curator-General Rowden Gray and his crew into the field again to solve the mystery of The Seven Sisters. However, the world has changed since Rowden managed his first task. The new China Hands are sucked into the maelstrom of time, flowing together with the relics, now that the world is at the brink.

Rowden Gray and Nicholas Battle, joined by three new stalwarts in pursuit of the next level in the triad, find a fortress in a mystery deeper than the first warrant, something that compels them to return to China and unravel a more difficult truth - one that challenges them beyond time's membrane. This second book in the Jade Owl Legacy Series pushes the new China Hands to the world’s brink - now that the relics flow together again.

Review fom Rainbow Reviews:

Sinologist Rowden Grey is back at the San Francisco Museum of East Asian Arts and Culture, formerly his dream career. The museum has benefited over many decades from artifacts and treasures provided by Rowden's late mentor, John Battle, including the mysterious treasures of China's only Empress, which impelled the events in the initial story. In this second volume, beginning after the "China Hands" return from China, the paranormal element introduced by the Jade Owl artifact becomes increasingly prevalent. Once again, Rowden, John Battle's son Nick, Nick's life partner Simon/Simone, and Rowden's new love Audrey, are put on the spot in a struggle for life, limb, and sanity as stakes escalate.

The Third Peregrination, second volume in Edward C. Patterson's The Jade Owl Legacy, is subtitled The Search of the New China Hands. Like its predecessor, The Jade Owl, the novel is riveting as escalating suspense has readers turning pages as fast as they can read. The continuing main protagonists are joined by a revolving cast of well-developed secondary characters who provide human interest as the plot lines begun in The Jade Owl further develop. Author Patterson never drops a stitch nor leaves a subplot dangling. Rife with suspense, character development, and a newly intensified focus on the paranormal, The Third Peregrination is a valid stand-alone novel, but will also inspire readers new to The Jade Owl Legacy to seek out the first volume and to eagerly anticipate the next book in the set. Once again, Mr. Patterson delivers don't miss excitement. Run, do not walk, to your nearest bookselling outlet and enjoy The Third Peregrination.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterful sequel to The Jade Owl 28 Mar. 2009
By ellen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Just when you think a series can't get better, sometimes you receive a wonderful surprise that the sequel in its own way outshines the original work.
The Third Peregrination is the sequel to The Jade Owl. Seems that little Jade Owl just keeps them drawing into mysteries that now only affect the meaning of Chinese relics that were part of Rowden Gray and Nicholas Battle's adventure, but they tear the veil of time itself to fulfill their destinies.
Our favorite 'China Hands' masters in the legends and histories of the Chinese culture return back to China to learn about the pull each of the participants and their roles in an ancient mystery that affects life itself as we know it.
The cast of characters, most whom we met in The Jade Owl, Rowden (Rowdy) Gray, Nicholas Battle, son of noted Sinologist John Battle, Simone/Simon, Nick's life partner who are now married, Rowdy's wife Audrey, then Rowdy's ex-wife, Rose, as well as unforgetable secondary characters create an amazing adventure that literally has the fate of the world in their hands.
The New China Hands must return to China with their relics to follow the story/banners of the and uncover what they truly mean and why that Jade Owl seems to be in each one.
So a group of four who eventually becoming a group of five tear thru time itself back to the time where this all began.
But something is happening - Each of the friends seems to be 'gifted' with powers never thought of - from telepathy to telekinesis, to I cannot even begin to tell you - but it will blow your mind. They are satellites around the Jade Owl wanting to pull them to do what has been deemed.
The Third Peregrination is a big book - 661 pages, but don't let that length shy you away from reading. Every page draws you in and puts you in the adventure there with our friends, whom you will care deeply for.
Edward Patterson is an amazing writer. He is a Sinologist and knows China backwards and forwards, and paints a picture of what is happening, the legendary characters our friends meet, and the almost halucigenic (sp) realtime events the characters go through.
If I could order the 3rd in the series right now, I would, but alas I have to wait.
While this book can be said to be a stand alone book, I think the back=story would be a plus and to read The Jade Owl would certainly add to the amazement and fun.
You care for these characters, root for them to succeed AND to fail at their destinies.
A worthy read from an amazingly prolific author, whose books I have read maintain the same quality and care of being true to the plot and character development.
I have a very limited knowledge of Mandarin Chinese, so have to rely on the phrases spoken by the locals or characters when it happens in the book to be understood. I don't think having translations would add to the book, as you can figure what is said by actions and reactions.
Fasten your seatbelts, and enjoy the ride!!!
Did I say I love this book?
A great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Book II of The Jade Owl series 26 Jan. 2009
By Mireille Reyns - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Rowden Gray harbored a secret in the hollow of his soul - a private terror kept from friend and family"

And so starts part II of the Jade Owl series... Once again with The Third Peregrination Mr. Patterson proofs what a brilliant storyteller he is. The plot thickens as the main characters of part I are joined by Sydney and Rose, characters so beautifully drawn you can't help but growing very fond of them. I greatly enjoyed learning more about triangulation, fascinated how each member of the ch'i-t'ang discovers what special powers they have. Sure, special powers not always easy to deal with, but highly needed when faced with dangers of both earthly and the supernatural kind.
This is a thrilling read, I highly recommend it !

5.0 out of 5 stars Patterson hits another one out of the park. 26 Jan. 2009
By Libby Cone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Just when you thought everything was OK, the artifacts tell you otherwise! The Third Peregrination manages to be just as exciting and original as the first in this series, The Jade Owl. Now Rowden Gray's echt-academic ex-wife Rose, and overeager assistant Sydney, are added to the mix. Again, even though this story involves triangulations of objets d'art and magic banners, the prose sustains the most rational of readers. This volume can stand on its own, so one needn't have read The Jade Owl beforehand.

5.0 out of 5 stars A trip like none taken before. 21 Dec. 2013
By Cathy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A trip back to China just had to be taken. Along with the trip you will read about mystery, magic, friendship,old and new, intrigue and "bad guys". The chosen five have a destiny that has to be fulfilled. How they literally save the day is well worth the "read".
