Lordly AncestorLittle Phoenix The third emperor of Tang and Heavenlight s second husband As a prince no one had expected him to inherit the crown but power struggle within both the royal family and the court eventually put him onto a position he hadn t fully been prepared for He has always been traditionally viewed as a weak willed and pathetic ruler However a closer look would reveal him as although not as successful as his father still a capable politician of his own right before illness affected his health and performanceHeavenlight WuEmpress Wu better known as Wu Zetain in Chinese pop culture and folklore an orphaned girl from the rural Wu clan she first served as a low ranking concubine in Emperor Eternal Ancestor s harem later she was forced to become a nun after the Emperor s

dangerous Palace She failed to gain her first husband s favor but caught the eyes of her stepson She had gone from being a widow a nun and then the new Emperor s chief wife For decades she ruled an empire through her husband and later her sons before she finally crowned herself then ruled for nearly two decades Historians condemned her for being an evil woman who controlled her emperor husband like puppet and murdered her way up to the top However she ruled and maintained an empire for much longer than many male emperors had ever managed to though at the same time she exiled terrorized and executed countless people for getting in her way including her kinmens and children Intelligent strong willed disciplined ambitious ruthless and for many times downright cruel Empress Wu was borrowing my GR friend Jocelyn s words one heck of a ladyTo be honest I cannot tell how much of my enjoyment with this book is because of Miss Sa s talent as an author and how much of it is because of the charm of her source materials the extraordinary life of Empress Wu Her story has always been well known throughout the history of China her dramatic raise to power her romance with her second husband her cruelty her reign as the one and only female emperor and even her scandalous affairs with her male lovers all of them are hand down stuffs of legendHowever good source materials still needs to be crafted by skillful hands for it to shine And the I read Empress the I can see the author s effort and her talent does shine through her writingMiss Sa mentioned in an interview at the back of the book she did three years of research for this book and it took her two years to finish writing it and it does show Not only I found the accuracy in this book amazing and impressive I am also impressed by Miss Sa s ability to weave different events through generations and different historical figures life stories together in such a neat effective manner Truth be told I think the beginning part of the story is the most gripping and the young Heavenlight Wu is a lot easier to be empathized with than her older self Even Miss Sa mentioned she empathizes with Heavenlight Wu for she had gone through the same shock and suffering Wu must have gone through as a rural girl who went alone from her home village to the empire s capital like Sa had once experienced moving from the post Cultural Revolution China to ParisLike many other famous and powerful women in history Empress Wu s life is controversial and I also appreciate the author s methods of handling the controversies and mysteries of Wu s life although I don t always agree with her conclusions such asThe facts mysteries and fictions in Empress Wu s life and how the author handled them1 Fact Empress Wu s origin name is unknown so her name isn t Heavenlight like Miss Sa had claimed After she went to the palace her first husband bestowed her the name Wu Mei which means Wu the Pretty One after she ascended to the throne she renamed herself Wu Heavenlight which actually means sun and moon in the Sky at the same time in Chinese Although Heavenlight is very likely not Empress Wu s origin name but I do think it is an awesome translation for the name of the book s heroine2 Mystery no 1 a lot of people tend to believe view spoilerWu Mei killed her infant daughter in order to frame Empress Wang the Emperor s then chief wife for the murder Well I am one of those people who think she really did that although in this book the author seems to think she didn t do that Still logically speaking Wu Mei did have a lot reason to

There s a story behind my reading this book I am by habit a reader of genre fiction which means stories about Spaceman Gort and the Flying Death Pygmies of Planet Bimbotron and things like that At the Barnes and Noble I typically shop for books at the Spaceman Gort section is crammed far into the back covered in cobwebs and filled with a droning voice that tells you how ashamed you should be for reading this drivel Perhaps I exaggerateOn the way to Spaceman Gort and the lovely ladies of Planet Bimbotron you have to cross a gauntlet of pretentiousness known as the Literature Section filled with proper works of Lih trah chuh On one trip through this minefield of horrors I happened to notice a book by Anne Rice I think it was Interview with a Vampire In the Literature section So apparently if you want to read Heinlein books you have to trudge to the Genre Ghetto but if you want to read about bisexual mulatto vampires sucking each other blood you perv on Bourbon Street the Literature section is for you So I was naturally perturbed and I started wondering what was so gosh darn special about these silly lihtrahchuh books anyway How could they compete with Heinlein Norton Clarke Lee Asimov So I decided I would try for once to actually read Literature But I wasn t willing to actually move or look around too much so I was limited to whatever was in arm s reach of Anne Rice The snazzy cover immediately drew me towards Empress Cute asian girl on cover check Written by a woman from communist china check who emmigrated to France big check to make paintings check of weird indistinct monochrome blobs check The book was original written in French humongous check and was historical fiction about the first female Empress of China Huh That actually sounded interesting So I grabbed the book tucked it under my meaty arm and headed off After finishing a genre book or two I finally turned to Empress with a little trepidation This was no ordinary reading No this was a serious meeting from the ambassador of Planet Literary Snob The book definitely has poetic prose but it doesn t gush as much as say a Stephen King book where it takes ten pages to describe someone opening a door The writing style even translated from another language is uite beautiful which I suppose is an important part of literature Now the narrative and characterization the parts that matter most in Spaceman Gort Land I personally found the characters uite emotive while some people found them dry I liked it The plot moved along at a good pace and focused on courtly intrigue in the Gynaceum of the Chinese Emperor Very sumptious lots of focus on gowns and decoration and the pageantry of it all and scheming schemersOne thing I found sort of dare I say precious Is it sexist of me to call a female writer from ChinaFrance precious It probably is Oh well The Empress described is the ONLY female empress China has ever had An AMAZING amount of people around her vanish and die in ways that are very convenient to her pursuit of power and the author does a tremendous tapdancing act to try to pretend she had little if nothing to do with it All the good things she did all the bad things George Bush did apparently I find this um highly doubtful You don t wind up as the only female Empress of China by a weird twist of fate you get there over the dead bodies of the men and women less ambitious and careful than youSo I m not sure how realistic it was but I very much enjoyed the book even if it was a bit naive at times Even though there were no robots flying death pygmies demon sorcerers alien invaders or bimbotronians I dare I say it Enjoyed the book Enough that I keep an eye out for other books by this author So I would say the Ambassador from Planet Literature did a good
