The Last Empress
New. This 308 page fictionalised version of the life of Ci Xi, the last empress of China, is a sequel to Min's novel Empress Orchid and an attempt to portray the empress' life in quite a different manner to the traditional version. Whereas Ci Xi has long been portrayed as the Dragon Lady, the manipulative power behind the throne of the last four emperors of China, in this novel she comes across as a loving, though at times misguided, mother caught up in the final moments of empire.
